Meaning, can you tell by the color that it is from grass-fed cows? I bought some Purity Farms ghee which is supposed to be from pastured cows but it is the same color as organic butter (which I'm sure is from grain-fed cows). Should butter from pastured cows always be deeper yellow than "ordinary" butter, or is it only during the spring that the color is different/deeper?

I have Kerrygold and Organic Valley both right now, I just compared the color and the Kerrygold is definitely darker yellow. Both are way more yellow than the conventional butter I've seen lately, which looks nearly white. The only butter I've seen that's more yellow than Kerrygold is some raw stuff I had shipped to me years ago, which was nearly orange. Organic Pastures raw, pastured butter is about the same shade as Organic Valley (pasteurized) or as Straus (pasteurized).

Kerrygold is a nice rich yellow color. I think I've read that that comes from being pastured, but the spring time thing rings a bell, too. Sorry, not much help! I will say that KG butter is really delish and has spoiled me for other butter, including organic.

I guess I'll go ahead and get some then...I figured if the color was the same (as organic butter) I'd go ahead and get the ghee and save myself the trouble of having to turn the Kerrygold butter into ghee.

Everything...cooking, baking, saueteeing...DD has a dairy intolerance and ghee (theoretically) has all the milk protein removed so it doesn't cause problems for her.
