Cholesterol And Margarine

Cholesterol And Margarine

Do you know that Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys?

But when it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback. So they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.

Margarine was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.

Lower Cholesterol - Butter versus Margarine

Now you know! How do you like it? However, they have come out with some clever new flavorings....

Can you tell the difference between margarine and butter?

This is very interesting! They both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams, compared to 5 grams for margarine.

According to a recent Harvard Medical Study - eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% compared to eating the same amount of butter.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods. Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they were added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods. Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.
