Butter? Salted or Unsalted

Probably a silly one, but when you see the same brands of butter which should you go for, is the unsalted simply superior as it skips alot of the salt and still has the same good fat propeties of a full fat butter (dont opt for 'light' versions?)
 
 
 
 
Also does it affect taste in anyway? I bought quite alot of unsalted in bulk as it was cheaper, so i guess I'll buy one salted one to taste but in cooking/eating does anyone have a preference for Salted or Unsalted taste wise?:)
 
 
Thanks

The salted one tastes saltier and has more salt in it.

Unsalted butter is minging. Probably better for you in some way but minging.

Nutritionally the same apart from the salt. In cooking it'll make no difference to taste as you can add seasoning anyway. On its own salted butter tastes way better.

Okay so cooking; no difference
 
 
Toast etc; not as good as salted
 
 
 
How about nutrition?  Is it much better to get the unsalted kind? I rarely stick salt in anything so would it be too small to bother about and ruining the taste of the butter over?
 
Thanks guys:)

The difference in nutrition between between the same branded butters, one being salted, the other not, is that one has salt in and the other doesn't. Simple.

Unsalted is generally intended for cooking.
But, as fats go, there's nothing particularly 'good' about it, unless you go for butter from grass fed cattle.

Agreed: This is the best option,although butter from grass fed cows isn`t that easy to source in the U.K.
Anchor butter used to be made with milk from grass fed cows but it is now made with U.K. milk.
I prefer salted butter myself, saturated fats arent really "bad" we need a certain amount.
With fats I am more concerned with processed, damaged fats than I am about saturated fats.   

Ignorance: Reassuringly Expensive.
