Butter

Butter

 

For many years it had red tape all over it. Butter, was indeed, bad.

 

But now it's come to light that butter overtakes it predecessor - the almighty margarine - when it comes to wearing the health crown.

 

Butter's origins date back about 10,000 years making it one of the most traditional foods you can get.

 

Not only is it known to lower your risk of obesity, it provides you with essential vitamins A, E, K and D.

Red meat

Red meat

 

This is one food product that many people decide to cut out of their diets after being told it is too high in saturated fat.

 

Contrary to what many think, half the fat found in beef, for example, is the same as what is in olive oil - which is essential to heart health.

 

Quality red meat is also a great source of protein, as well as being high in zinc and iron.

Eggs

Eggs

 

It was said that eggs were a significant source of cholesterol but including them in your diet could be seriously beneficial.

 

Health experts now say there is no direct link and eggs are packed full of essential nutrition like zinc, vitamin D, iron and protein.

Bacon

Bacon

 

It wasn't that long ago when bacon hit the headlines for being a major factor in causing cancer.

 

But when looking at the health statistics of bacon, and sausages too, it becomes clear that like with all things, eaten in moderation it can actually be good for you.

 

According to Men's Health magazine, both bacon and sausage products are high in protein, making them the perfect breakfast companions before an exercise session.

 

They also contain a high dose of niacin - a nutrient that's good for your skin, eyes and hair and for battling depression.

Whole milk and full-fat dairy

Whole milk and full-fat dairy

 

The good fats and bad fats debate seems to have come to a peak recently with many health experts championing natural, whole fats.

 

Raw and organic milk has never been more popular and what's more, full-fat dairy products are linked to reducing blood-pressure and obesity.

 

And this, of course, can only be beneficial to our dairy industry.
