Can I assume this Tesco Organic Unsalted Butter is grass fed?

I emailed Kerrygold as I have not found their unsalted anywhere in the UK, so I got this butter from Tesco instead for use with bulletproof coffee.

Any UK hackers found unsalted kerrygold anywhere or know of a subsitute? Or can I assumed this butter is safe?

Thanks! (be gentle - first post)

I've come to the conclusion that organic doesn't necessarily mean healthier or better quality, it could just mean the pellets they eat are organic or something. That said, British livestock is generally pretty good quality and grass fed from what I've heard, a lot more than the US for sure

Here is a link that lists organic - and at the end, grassfed - dairy products. It looks like the Tesco Organic unfortunately does not make the cut for the grassfed butters (scroll to the bottom)

i think it should be ok.. dairy cows and british cows are only usually fed grain for fatting up for the last 6 months of their life. if you can find some orkney butter that stuff is good.. 80% of orkney beef is grass fed in summer and only get silage in winter.. :) and they have a breed of sheep that only eats seaweed.. lol not that that is that relivant..

Yeo Valley is my butter of choice, mainly because their unsalted butter is divine and mostly grass fed and organic. They are fairly open about what they feed their cows: https://www.yeovalley.co.uk/the-family/the-cows

I've yet to find a 100% organic and grassfed butter but I think this is a good 2nd.

I don't know about in the UK, but in the US "organic" butter is usually from cattle fed organic soybeans.

Kerrygold unsalted is now back in the UK! I stumbled upon some in Tesco today. It is the one in silver wrapping.

Local farmers markets are a good starting place. You can ask the dairy farmers selling butter if their cattle are grass fed. I am able to buy super butter in Guildford farmer's market. It comes from a farm in Oxfordshire (can't recall the name, sorry) but they go to several farmer's markets in the South East. The same must happen over much of Britain.

Also find your local organic, free range dairy farms. Excellent raw milk source and cream - if you want to churn your own!

P.S. the organic mentioned is grass fed yet NOT on the labels

I was in Waitrose today & only salted Kerrygold. Bought organic Yeo Valley. Have you read this article on these 2 plus Rachel Organic.

Rachel's organic butter unsalted is your best bet.

Kerrygold unsalted has been discontinued in the UK. I e-mailed them recently because I just could not find it. Now I know why!!
