Kerrygold, What Are You Doing Putting Canola Oil In Grass-Fed Butter?

I was in my local Spartanburg, South Carolina Walmart last week to pick up some more of my favorite Kerrygold butter since they sell it there for just under $3 a stick (the grocery store wants $5.50 for the same product). When I walked to the back left-hand corner of the store where this is stocked, I noticed there was a tub with the Kerrygold name on it right next to the salted and unsalted sticks they sell and so I picked it up. It was similar to the Naturally Softer Salted Kerrygold butter (there’s nothing added to it making it softer, they simply churn it more slowly to create a spreadable product) I’ve found at Sam’s Club, but smaller. So naturally I assumed it was the same thing…but it wasn’t even close. What I discovered looking at the label was quite frankly a bit shocking to me as a fan of the Kerrygold brand of butters. It seems the Kerrygold company has made the decision to mix their amazing grass-fed butter with canola oil! Yep, you heard me right–Kerrygold now has a version of their butter that is intentionally made with a chemically-processed, genetically modified, prone to oxidation, pro-inflammatory, Vitamin E-depleting, pro-aging, thyroid hormone-destroying substance that is not appropriate for human consumption (read more about why canola oil isn’t optimal for your health in this blog post from Caitlin Weeks at “Grass Fed Girl”).

My buddy Tom Naughton from “FAT HEAD” posted this video about how canola oil is made that will very likely shock people who think this is a healthy fat for them to be consuming. This is the TRUTH about canola oil nobody wants you to know about:


http://youtu.be/omjWmLG0EAs

Now I know a few of you business-minded people are probably thinking, “What’s the big deal, Jimmy? Kerrygold is just a company attempting to expand their customer base by making available a wider array of products to meet consumer demand. This product doesn’t bother me because I’m not going to be buying it.” As a business owner myself, I realize the wisdom in a marketing strategy of creating a wider tent to increase your share of the proverbial piece of the pie by appealing to the most people with your product selection. But seeing as the low-carb, Paleo, primal, real food, ketogenic community has helped put Kerrygold on the map so to speak in the past few years by speaking so positively about the quality of their grass-fed butters being set apart from their competition, this move seems to greatly contradict that image that they are a company who understands why real butter alone is good for people to be consuming (curiously, this canola oil blend and their reduced-fat version do not appear among their list of butter products on their website). This move to add canola oil may actually turn off many more of their existing customers than it will turn on new customers.

But I have to ask an important question here–is there really such a HUGE demand for a product like this or is Kerrygold simply testing it out to see how it would do in our fat-phobic American culture who might buy into a blended butter over a product that is 100% butter made from cream and salt? When I posted this to my Instagram account, the comments section blew up from my followers there with concerned feedback like “why mess with a good thing,” “don’t do that to butter,” and a man from Ireland who stated “we don’t get (the canola oil blend) in Ireland, where Kerrygold comes from.” To their credit, KerrygoldUSA chimed in as well seeing all the concerns from my followers and here’s what they said about this:

Again, from a business standpoint I understand why a company like Kerrygold would want to do this and they articulated it in their statement above. Let’s take a look at each of their reasons for doing this and why I think they might be missing the boat here:

1. “We’re simply providing more choices”

Fair enough. Expand your product line by adding herbs and spices as you already have. But when you put canola oil in it, you’ve totally changed this from a healthy product to one that most enlightened real food consumers will avoid like the plague. It’s no longer butter and, in my eyes, is just as bad as those fake butter products like the ones MollyAnn Wymer mocked in this hilarious YouTube video last week:


http://youtu.be/bFDlpKbr0uk

2. “Butter that’s more spreadable”

Ummmm, isn’t that why you made this product, Kerrygold? Plus, butter can be left out on the counter for an hour and easily become soft enough to spread easily on virtually anything. I suppose people are so used to using margarine out of a tub that they expect this feature in their butter, but there are ways to make it softer to spread just fine without adding something that is highly inferior to it for that purpose.


(I have to ask–How exactly is this product “suitable for vegetarians”?)

3. “Convenient”

Huh? If they’re referring to having it in a tub as the “convenient” part, then they’ve already made that available without the added canola oil. Any and all of Kerrygold’s other products are just as good, so I’m not seeing why this one is better than those.

4. “A lower price point”

While this may seem like a benefit, it’s actually a tell-tale sign of the devaluing of their original product. Yes, Kerrygold butter is more expensive than regular butter and margarine products. But it’s a high-quality, grass-fed imported Irish butter that is miles ahead of the typical American butter and the cost of the product is reflected in that. But the reason the canola oil blend is less expensive is because they add a cheap source of man-made fat to it. It would be like taking a beautiful cut of filet mignon, cutting it in half, and breading it thickly with a whole grain mixture to lower the price. Yes, it would cost less, but did you get more than you bargained for? Absolutely and not for the better.

Looking at the imagery and tone of this television ad for Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter, it makes their decision to make a canola oil blend version all the more perplexing:


http://www.ispot.tv/ad/762m/kerrygold-pure-irish-butter

You know what I’d love to see Kerrygold do to expand their customer base without sacrificing what sets them apart from their competitors? Tell people what is GOOD about their butter, why saturated fat is actually healthy, why grass-fed butter is superior to the pale, white butter that is typical on grocery store shelves, and so much more. This is an excellent opportunity for them or any other company promoting products made of simple, real food ingredients to boast of the benefits that come from consuming their products rather than trying to be politically correct by replacing the saturated fat with a supposedly “healthy” oil. Grass-fed butter is good enough on its own without contaminating it with something that will never be good.

If Kerrygold truly takes fan input “very seriously,” then we need to let them know why this concerns us. You can share your feedback with them on their Contact Us page, on Twitter, on Instagram, and on Facebook. Be polite and respectful in your comments and make your voice heard why the Kerrygold butter with canola oil product is a very bad idea. Let me know if you get a response from them.

The LLVLC Show (Episode 884): Periodontist Dr. Alvin Danenberg Uses Primal Nutrition With Patients

100% GRASS-FED/FINISHED BEEF JERKY

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 884 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a periodontist and primal nutrition practitioner named Dr. Alvin Danenberg as our interview guest today. In the context of ancestral health, a lot of focus tends to be on weight loss, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. But there are enthusiasts all across the broad spectrum of the medical profession who are taking the principles of low-carb, Paleo, primal and real food directly to their patients to help them improve the aspects of their health related to their field of expertise. That’s exactly what a South Carolina-based nutritional periodontist named Dr. Alvin Danenberg is now doing for his patients after discovering the ancestral lifestyle in early 2013. He has received advanced training in ancestral nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in 2013, become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in July 2014, and in September 2014 he became a Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Mark Sisson’s new certification program he shared about in Episode 873).

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Danenberg discuss how he got excited about dental and gum health back in the early 1970s, he practiced traditionally for 35 years until learning about the laser-based LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) protocol, why the laser treatment wasn’t the total answer for his patients, the nutritional course where he learned about ancestral health, why he shifted from being a traditional periodontist to using more modern methods for treating gum disease, his wife Sue didn’t support what he was doing but was willing to give it a chance, how his life shifted to being more primal thanks to the work of Mark Sisson, how he never heard of the work of Dr. Weston A. Price in any of his formal medical education, how he convinces his patients that tooth and gum health are related directly to their nutrition, many chronic health issues begin in dental and gum health, his work healing the gut health of his patients to improve their gum health, the results of the clinical study he has designed using real food-based, nutrient-dense supplements to see what happens to gum disease, why the C-Reactive Protein (the key inflammation marker) didn’t improve in the patients in the study, his collaboration with former podcast guest Ramiel Nagel, whether his study has been accepted to any medical journals, the self-professed limitations of his study, the company who wants him to do a study for them, and why you don’t need a commercial toothpaste to brush your teeth.

The LLVLC Show (Episode 883): Dr. Kirk Parsley Implores People To Put The Emphasis Back On Sleep

TRY THE QUEST NUTRITION LINE OF LOW-CARB PRODUCTS

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 883 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have a former Navy SEAL, medical doctor and sleep medicine specialist named Dr. Kirk Parsley as our interview guest today. Sleep (along with stress) is perhaps one of the biggest non-dietary factors that plays such an instrumental part in the weight and health success or failure that people tend to have. If you get an adequate amount of restful, rejuvenating sleep in bed at night, then your health will be rewarded for giving it what it wants. But for most people, they are living their lives on a significant sleep deficit and that is taking a major toll on their quality of living that cannot be ignored any long according to Dr. Kirk Parsley, MD, who served as the Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine and is certified in hormonal modulation lecturing extensively on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization. He is working on a book on sleep optimization, but caught the attention of people like Robb Wolf because of a TEDxReno talk he gave on the subject of sleep last month called America’s biggest problem.

DR. KIRK PARSLEY’S IMPASSIONED TEDX TALK ON SLEEP

America’s biggest problem | Kirk Parsley | TEDxReno

Listen in to hear Dr. Parsley and I discuss his story being an active member of the Navy SEALS team and how he shifted his career to the healthcare industry, how he developed a good rapport with the Navy SEALS who he encountered, how sleep came on his radar screen and why medical school didn’t help him understand the importance of it, why sleep is such a major factor in optimizing your health, the insulin connection to sleep deprivation, when you are broken a lack of sleep breaks you even more, how he ran into Robb Wolf at an event that got him to turn his career into the sleep guy who talks about nutrition, the main reasons why people don’t tend to get enough sleep, the cultural norm of sleep being less important than work, how some people have a genetically higher tolerance for lack of sleep just like variances in carbohydrate tolerance, how his own sleep deprivation wrecked his fitness and health, what “sleeping adequately” is defined as, how being in a pitch black room can help you get caught up on your sleep debt, how a high percentage of Navy SEALS are taking Ambien and drinking alcohol to get to sleep, the value of getting bright light therapy during the daytime to get your circadian rhythm and health back in line again, his sleep cocktail of a variety of sleep-inducing supplements, why you should start to value sleep more in your life, the New York Times column featuring Nom Nom Paleo wearing yellow glasses at night, the purpose of a completely dark room for sleep, whether melatonin supplementation can help with sleep, the value of doing a to-do list and a to-worry list, and a whole lot more! You’ll quickly notice Dr. Parsley is 100% committed to helping people live the highest quality of life possible, and achieve their health, performance, and longevity goals. ENJOY!
