Butter, Unsalted

edited October 2018 in General Nutrition

I was looking at what I consumed over the course of the day and was surprised to see that I had eaten trans-fat. Looking up the culprit, I found that it was my unsalted butter. I googled that and found that grass-fed Irish wonderful yummy butter does not contain trans-fat. Why is is listed her that it does?

    Did you just type in butter, unsalted, or did you enter Irish butter? The Kerrygold Irish butter doesn't show transfat in the db.

    Hi Bajanna,

    There are different sources of trans fat:

    1. Naturally-occurring found in products made from ruminant animals (cows, sheep, deer, goat etc.)These trans fats are thought not to be harmful.

    2. Industrially-produced trans fats found in processed foods like hydrogenated oils. These are thought to be the harmful trans fats that have been banned in many countries.
