Palm oil interfering with the quality of real butter

Test
Feb 25, 2021 | 17:47 1 Yep, wonder why your butter doesn’t have the same flavour it used to have? And why do you have to pt it in the microwave so you can spread it on bread? Dairy Producers say it is because the cows are being fed palm oil or......... maybe butter is being cut with palm oil margerine? Just asking. Reply With Quote
Feb 25, 2021 | 18:01 2 I will pick the second choice
There’s palm trees in Canada tho ? Right ?
We’re supposed to be so proud of our “dairy industry” FMG
Doing same as the slippery Chicoms with Canadian honey

  • Feb 25, 2021 | 18:24 3 So the brand name Palm Dairies wasn't just a cute name and palm tree logo?
    I must be old, I thought they were still a thing, just googled and it looks like they were taken over in 1989. Reply With Quote

    Why wouldn't they use Canadian CNL oil then? Seems funny they want SM so consumers have to buy 100% CDN milk but don't want or use CDN cattle diet. Reply With Quote

    Feb 26, 2021 | 04:54 8 Have heard other comments about butter recently, don't really know, I prefer my butter in cookies and they still taste fine.

    Feed additives are same as any other input, logistics /availability and economics all play a part. Problem with rapidly increasing grain prices is that it alienates customers and they find another source. Canola oil and meal is used lots in feed mills. The meal has a taste animals dont like so is used in smaller percentages than soy.

    Incidently I use bagged soyameal and priced it out today $25/20kg bag. Never seen it that high. Reply With Quote

    Has any evidence been presented that palm oil in dairy rations affect butter's melting point? Any?

    Not a single story I have read about this has said anything about any study, or any empirical data backing-up what these folks feel is true.

    As Rigas Karamanos is fond of saying, "In god we trust, all others bring your data". Reply With Quote

    I have to agree with the dumguy. The proof is my butter on the kitchen counter is too hard to spread. What I see with own two eyes I believe much more than fake scientific news.

    Palm oil in my butter??? 🤬 Reply With Quote

    It’s palm fat. They could milk a couple extra cows and not pump the palm crap into them.
    More Canadian dairy farmer greed, it’s staggering, huge milk prices to the producer, compensation (1200$ a cow over 4 years)
    Good thing the consumer doesn’t know any of this Reply With Quote

    There is no palm oil in your butter, only palmitic acid, naturally produced by the cow regardless of whether it was fed supplements or not. If you actually want to eat palm oil, have some margarine.

    Wait until summer, your cupboard butter will soften up, just as it gets hard every winter. Reply With Quote

    Feb 26, 2021 | 19:04 16 Ok, the one we buy is only 91% canola oil, but the specs are as good as or better than Becel for those of us that have high cholesterol.

    Feb 27, 2021 | 14:37 17 Guess I gotta buy a milk cow and a cream separator to do the taste test. There must be a research grant for that. 😂 Reply With Quote

    Love that labeling for "lactose free" margarine.
    Made with lactose free and gluten free canola. Must be good stuff. LMAO Reply With Quote
