Butter or Margarine?

Post  EarthsAngel on Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:28 am

DO YOU KNOW...the difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end...it gets very interesting!



Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams.



Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over
eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.



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



And now, for Margarine..



Very high in trans fatty acids... Triple risk of coronary heart disease. Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) Lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) ...



Increases the risk of cancers by up to five fold...



Lowers quality of breast milk



Decreases immune response..



Decreases insulin response.



And here are the most disturbing facts....



HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!



Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC ..... And margarine is initially BLACK, but it is DYED YELLOW to look like butter.



These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance)..



YOU can try this yourself: purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things: no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something) ... it does not rot or smell differently… because it has no nutritional value, nothing will grow on it... even those teeny weenie micro-organisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?





Share This With Your Friends.....(Butter them up!)

Shocking but doesn't really surprise me. At the end of the day margarine is a synthetic product. It's man made.

It is a tricky one because a lot of people cant eat butter because of cholesterol levels but is margarine really a healthy alternative?

Margarine caused bad Cholesterol, people really should stay away from it altogether. The Heart Foundation give their seal of approval for Floro margarine, I wonder how much Flora give to the Heart Foundation?

El, you didn't read the article properly, people with heart problem should not go anywhere near margarine, it causes bad cholesterol and destroys good cholesterol. It causes cancer, it is lethal!


Mel, throw it in your dustbin where it belongs. I only ever eat butter, cook with butter, we never have margarine in the house. It's almost like eating melted plastic, tastes revolting as well. I don't know about the UK, but butter is the same price as margarine here, sometimes works out cheaper.

Im shocked! affraid
I use margarine as a healthy alternative and have a block of butter for the odd 'treat'. Im amazed that we are being told through advertisements that certain margarine's are good for us. I fell for it! Another con that the public have been duped into. The thought of it being 'black' is disgusting too.
