Butter is Better – The Truth About Margarine and Trans Fats

0 26

There are still many who believe that choosing margarine over butter is better for your health. You may be unpleasantly surprised to discover that margarine is a highly processed trans fat that can triple your risk of heart disease; increase your risk of cancer; reduce the quality of breast milk; reduce immunity to diseases; and decrease your response to insulin.

What exactly is a trans fat? Trans fats, also known as trans fats, are far from healthy because they are made by hydrogenating oils. Hydrogenation solidifies liquid oils; The addition of trans fats to oils and foods increases their shelf life and flavor stability.

And you don’t have to look far to find this nasty “food” ingredient — it’s found in most margarines and vegetable fats, as well as crackers, cookies, snack foods, and other foods.

If that doesn’t make you get up and pay attention, remember: trans fats are just one molecule away from being a plastic. In addition, margarine itself shares 27 ingredients with color.

Try this experiment if you’re still not convinced – buy a can of margarine and leave it open in your garbage or outside. Go back and check it out in a few days. You will find that no flies or insects have dared to approach it! Margarine won’t rot or decompose because it has absolutely no nutritional value – not even bugs want to mess with it!

Did you know that margarine was originally made to fatten turkeys and other livestock, but after it actually made the animals sick they had to stop using it? Researchers who put money into producing and manufacturing this product wanted a return on investment, so they put their heads together to figure out what else they could do with it.

Because it’s a tasteless white substance with no real food appeal, they decided to add some yellow color and flavor and offer it as a food instead of butter. With enough help from advertisers, butter became “bad” for you, and margarine was promoted as the better alternative.

Both butter and margarine have the same amount of calories (9 calories per gram), and butter has a slightly higher saturated fat content. In addition, eating butter actually helps absorb nutrients from other foods. Butter also has more natural nutritional values ​​and tastes so much better than margarine.

And according to a recent medical study from Harvard, eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% compared to eating the same amount of butter.

Please believe me butter is better so go ahead and enjoy. And the next time you’re tempted to use margarine, ask yourself if you’d spread a melted plastic food container on your toast.
