Butter vs. Margarine: New Research Reveals Which is Healthier
newsmax ^ | 2/15/2013 | Sylvia Booth Hubbard

Margarine isn't better for your heart than butter — it's worse, according to a new analysis of a 40-year-old study. For 50 years, health experts and organizations, including the American Heart Association, have urged people to replace butter and other saturated fats in their diets with vegetable oils to reduce the risk of heart disease. Millions of Americans responded by replacing butter with margarine made from omega-6 polyunsaturated vegetable oils found in corn and safflower oil.

Decades later, however, heart disease is still the leading cause of death in both American men and women, and a recent analysis of data collected from 1966 to 1973 indicates that replacing butter and other saturated fats with vegetable oils may have increased the risk of heart disease instead of reducing it.

I melt a stick of butter and mix it with 1/2 of EVOO. I keep it in the fridge. It stays semi-solid, spreads easily and tastes good on everything, even pancakes and French toast. Works for me.

Butter also tastes better. I can’t see how people can eat margarine, nasty stuff.

Amen. Kerrygold is my favorite butter. I also love their Red Leicester cheese.

Back when public schools were worth a damn, we used to make butter in a churn. Good stuff...real good stuff. Crack heads don’t know what they’re missing...

I’ll have to look for that. I’ve tried their Dubliner which is yummy. Fresh authentic Irish soda bread with Kerrygold. Sooo good.

Unsalted butter is used in cooking (by purists) because it does not add salt to the recipe. Butter varies in the amount of salt it contains; if you add additional salt, the recipe can turn out too salty.

How can margarine be better? Have you read the list of ingredients? Put me in the ‘duh’ vote here.

Butter. Salt. Eggs. Milk. Lard. Beef tallow. Fresh beef, pork, and chicken. Garden veggies. Cane sugar. Home-ground wheat.

Pretty much what our forebears ate, and most of them lived into their eighties, nineties, or even past one hundred in a few cases.

No margarine allowed at our house. No way. That stuff will kill ya.

That's for some good memories right there.

So I guess “I Can’t Beleive it’s Not Butter” is out?

Not in this house. We buy I Can't Believe It's Not Butter LITE. Has 1/2 the calories of regular ICB It's NB and 1/2 calories of real butter. I go by calories.

I’ve always hated margarine and immediately noticed the difference when my mother used it instead of butter. When I left the house, I never bought margarine. I’ve always used butter. There’s no substitute.
