Butter vs Margarine: Which is really healthier?
- 11 Months ago
The butter-versus-margarine debate is a slippery subject. Some brands of margarine have unhealthy trans fats, while others have confusing health claims.
Margarine is made from vegetable oils, so it contains unsaturated "good" fats- polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These types of fats help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad," cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat.
