Mother Butter is more than a food product. Mother Butter is an aspiring B-Corporation, which means that, well, for one: we’re ambitious. But more importantly, that we dream of building a business that balances purpose and profit. And of being an organization that provides working conditions for modern parenthood.
LETTER FROM KRISTIN
I was in my mid-30s when I started the process of becoming a mother.
It began by learning more about my body than I had ever known before. Wait, we only get 12 shots a year to make this happen? This process led me to discover foods that supported my hormonal health, and how to lean into my unique rhythm as a woman.
As I continued to get further into my personal motherhood journey I learned that most women, like me, don’t focus so intently on their personal health until it is impacting the health of their child. This moved me to think, “How could all women get the nutrients our bodies need in a more accessible, desirable… perhaps snackable way?”
After playing with a lot of fun snack concepts (even feeding a friend trying to get pregnant my homemade snacks for an entire summer), I teamed up with the Drexel Food Core Lab and together we discovered: Mother Butter.
In our research, we learned some really important things. For starters, there isn’t enough research surrounding women and how diet impacts fertility. What we did find was that a Mediterranean Diet, rich in monounsaturated fats, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, has been proven to improve a woman’s vitality.
Still focused on snacks, we got to work in the kitchen. We soon began working with a multi-seed butter spread as a binding agent and as the carrier of Omega-3s, Protein, Magnesium, Iron and other nutrients so many women lack. I began referring to the spread as “The Mother,” and soon enough, we pulled it out of our snacks and let it be on it’s own. Mother Butter was born.
The really fun part of discovering Mother Butter? It is healthy, delicious, vegan, nut-free, gluten free, and wonderful for EVERYONE. Find me behind the butter at a pop-up market or on social to learn more.
I can’t wait for you to try it.
