about Kerrygold Butter

Kerrygold Butter is made by a cooperative of farmers and dairy creameries in Ireland. All the milk comes from cows that are free of growth hormones. The cows roam free in fresh air and graze in lush pastures of intensely green Irish grass. From this benign environment and extraordinary diet come luscious milk so rich in beta-carotene, it turns butter into an extraordinary, natural golden color.

Kerrygold makes two types of butter. Both types come in foil packaging gold for the salted butter and silver for unsalted. Butter is a delicate product that can absorb odors in the refrigerator. The foil serves as an excellent barrier to protect butter from off-flavors and odors and to maintain freshness.
  • Kerrygold Salted Butter is made with sweet cream and salt in perfect balance. It is 80 percent fat.
  • Kerrygold Unsalted Butter is a cultured cream butter. Just as cheese takes on a richer flavor through aging, lactic acid bacteria is added to the churned butter to induce fermentation. As a result, the butter develops a more complex quality, replicating the slightly soured milk that was used to make butter in the days when raw cream was used. This is the preferred European style of butter. This butter is 82 percent fat.
