Welcome to Ask Whole9 Canada, where Summer Innanen and Sarah Ramsden answer all of your health and nutrition questions. In this week’s episode, Joe from Montreal asks us, “Where can I find a Canadian source of grass-fed (pastured) dairy?”
In last week’s episode, we talked about how you can determine whether or not you can tolerate dairy and what some of the common symptoms are of a diary sensitivity or intolerance are. In our Whole9 Nutrition Seminar we talk about how the fat component of dairy is the one constituent that does have health promoting benefits and this is why ghee is included as one of the healthy fats in the Whole30. In addition, assuming you have completed your own post-Whole30 self-experimentation and determined that you can tolerate some dairy, then you may want to include some high-fat cream or butter in your diet. If this is the case, it’s imperative that you are buying the highest quality dairy, which means it is 100% grass-fed and organic. In Canada, this is not the easiest food to obtain.
In this episode, we break down where to find Canadian sources of grass-fed and organic butter (so you can make ghee) as well as high-fat cream.
