Kate's, we believe the best butter is made with the simplest,
all-natural ingredients - free of artificial colors, flavors
That's why we use only fresh pasteurized sweet cream from cows
not treated with artificial growth hormones (also known as Recombinant
Bovine Growth Hormone, rBGH, Bovine Somatotropin, or rBST).
rBGH is a genetically modified hormone designed to increase
a cow's milk production. There are many concerns about the effects
of rBGH on animal and human wellness, and the farmers who provide
our cream are committed to producing the freshest dairy products
using effective and humane practices.
The largest producer of rBGH has launched an aggressive campaign
against companies who label their products as rBGH-free. At
Kate's, we believe consumers have the right to know what's in
the products they purchase. That's why our packaging plainly
states, "From cows not treated with rBGH."
