There are many fat-soluble vitamins in butter. This includes vitamins A, E and K2. Let’s talk about Vitamin K2 or Menaquinone, which is quite rare in the modern diet and that many people do not know about.
Vitamin K2 can have powerful effects on health. It is intimately involved in calcium metabolism and low intake has been associated with many serious diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis.
The dairying of cows fed on grass is particularly rich in vitamin K2. The “war” against saturated fat was based on bad science. It has never been proven that they cause any harm. In fact, recent studies even suggest that there is no association between saturated fat and cardiovascular disease. Saturated fats increase the HDL (good) cholesterol and change the small-dense LDL (very bad) to a large molecule LDL that is benign.
In addition, butter contains a decent amount of short and medium chain fat … which is metabolized differently from other fats. They lead to improved satiety and increased fat burning.
Fresh organic butter, can be made in 10 minutes at home. It’s so simple but so exquisite that you could not give it up. By using just two ingredients you will benefit from all the kindness of butter on your toast and in your gourmet dishes.

The method of preparation:
Pour the cream into the food processor and cook for about 10 minutes. it will turn into a thick whipped cream first.
Continue the treatment until it becomes granular and separated into butter and buttermilk. Drain the next.
Scratch it on the sides. Put in a clean bowl and place your butter in a colander and stretch the buttermilk.
Rinse the butter with cold water, gently turning the butter with a spoon while the cold water flows on until the water becomes clear.
When the butter is clean, squeeze more liquid from butter using wooden pallets or spoons to crush the butter and pour the liquid.
You can keep it in a jar or bowl, and store it in the fridge, or freezer. This type of butter can last for several months.
