Pass the butter please…


This is interesting…

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. 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. It 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.

How do you like it?

They have come out with some clever new flavourings!

Do you know the difference between margarine and butter?

  • Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.       
  • Both have the same amount of calories.
  • Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.
  • 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 are added!
  • Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods. No one on Masterchef uses margarine!

And now, for Margarine…

  • Very High in Trans fatty acids.
  • Triples risk of coronary heart disease: Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.
  • Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)
  • Increases the risk of cancers up to five times.
  • Lowers quality of breast milk.
  • Decreases immune response.
  • Decreases insulin response.

And here’s the most disturbing fact…. Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT!

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 open in a shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:

  • No flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something) Even if you leave margarine out for 2 years, no living creature will touch it – only humans!
  • It does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value.
  • Nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms 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?
  • Do the same thing with butter and you will see very soon insects crawling on it.

I return to buying on again and again. I ordered medicines from other online pharmacies, but there were issues with the delivery or payments. Several times, I received generics instead of brands. Anyway, I decided not to experiment anymore and get back to the service that I trust most. Now I know that it’s the best.
