Trans fat in butter?

I noticed there's about 3.7 grams of trans fat in a stick of butter (the type you would pick up at your average supermarket). Is this significant? Does pastured butter differ?

Yup, CLA is beneficial stuff. You'll also find more of it in grass fed beef and bison than in grain fed.

It's conjugated linoleic acid. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conjugated_linoleic_acid

This is natural trans fat, which occurs in animal products. It's completely different to the trans fats in processed foods and not at all harmful.
