Beta-Casein and Β-casomorphins-7
There is some trace amounts of casein in butter, however I do not know whether that is all butter.

Often it is my friends who "inspire" my research and especially if the subject matter has something to do with health, well-being and/or healing. This afternoon a friend mentioned they would be avoiding butter to see whether that made a positive difference for them as they suspected they may have some kind of food sensitivity to casein. Does butter have casein?
Dr. Tom Cowan is my first reference in my present research on the subject of casein.:
"...I was asked to consider writing the foreword to a book called Devil in the Milk, written by agribusiness professor and farm-management consultant Keith Woodford. In this book Dr. Woodford lays out the theory that there is a devil in some of our milk, and this is something we need to come to grips with. Here is a brief synopsis of the main thesis of his book.
Milk consists of three parts: 1) butterfat, 2) whey and 3) milk solids. For this story we are only concerned about the milk solids part, as the fat and whey don’t have this 'devil.' The milk solids part is composed of many different proteins, along with lactose and other sugars. It is the protein part of the solids we’re interested in. One of these proteins is called casein, of which there are many different types, but the one casein we are interested in is the predominant protein called beta-casein.
Apparently there is some trace amounts of casein in butter, however in light of the complete Cowan report I do not know whether that is all butter. I do not know whether butter from A-2 cows would be different although IMO it would be different.
Ghee can be a casein free option if it can be "guaranteed" casein free.

Teasing out the beta-casein evidence. A brief review of some of the major strands of health evidence.
"When history looks back on the saga of A1 beta-casein and the ‘milk devil’ I think the verdict will be that this Kost et al paper is the most significant breakthrough for at least five years. It is not only the results themselves, but that the Russians have given major new insights which others can now follow up. For example, the insight that it is not just a case of whether the BCM7 is absorbed, but also whether or not the individual has the ability to rapidly metabolise and excrete the little devil, will open the door to new research pathways."

"A2 milk is now available in the USA. Search here for outlets."
