Butter can be persnickety, just like which motor oil is "best".

I use whatever is on sale and stock up.
I have read where European style is the "best". Then grass fed is even better.
For grins I am getting some high end butter just to see what happens in a batch of cookies.

When taste matters, pretty much any unsalted butter.

When it doesn't matter, Land o Lakes has a light butter with canola oil with 30% fewer calories. Still tastes pretty good, but less likely to make me fat.

It's funny that you bring this up, because I just dealt with this today. After having vacationed in Europe last summer, I've come to conclude that their butter is way better. So is their coffee and most other food, but that's a whole other topic. I bought some European style butter today and used it in some mashed potatoes, and it tasted excellent. The smell of the butter is also quite different. Can't wait to try it on toast, eggs, etc.

Interesting! Now I need to try it! The European has a higher fat content.
This might be fun.

The European butter tends to be grass fed. Grass fed beef and milk has a lot more taste. I like the Kerrygold butter. But I only use it if I'm spreading it on pancakes, rolls, biscuits, etc. For cooking I use cheaper butter on sale.

I saw that today shopping.
I just emailed a lady on a small farm near where we are traveling. They have grass fed butter by Jersey cows.

Why not just use less butter if you want fewer calories? A better option than using butter with industrially produced oil.

I also use Kerrygold for spreading, and I use the Wegmans (grocery store) house brand for baking.

I have no problem with margarine or vegetable oils, but each item should be assessed individually for nutritional value. Nothing is good or bad because it's natural or synthetic.

That's just not true. Natural grass fed butter is simply better for you than industrial butter products. Better ratio of Omega 3 to 6. More nutrients all around. Conventional butter is also ahead of butter products, just not as far in front. More taste, more nutrition. An easy choice.

My wife went to college when the kids were both in school, took some biology and chemistry. She likes to say margarine in one molecule away from being plastic.
