Butter is sattvic for Vata individuals because it builds ojas and grounds them. Also, milk products are sattvic in general because they are freely given without any violence to the animal. Butter is tamasic for Kapha individuals because it is heavy and puts them to sleep. Thanks for asking!
What is the real taste or rasa of butter? Some people say it is sour some says sweet? Can you please explain this?
We classify the rasa of butter as sweet.
I highly regard the information on this website, but i cannot agree that milk of animals is freely given to human. there is force and harm involved otherwise it would not work. imagine aliens coming down trying to milk humans. that's appears like a horror scenario and not a free exchange or even thinking the mothers would offer it voluntarily to other beings than their babies... excuse me, that is a critical issue I suppose!
in some ways you are right. But i guess if the cow is treated kindly, it will look forward to this relationship wt humans(trust, protection from predators, massaging of the titslol, etc). i guess it is a form of symbiotic relation? I guess this Friendly Slavery (like dogs/cats...)have its advantage ove living in the wild in herds and what not.
