I have heard how bad margarine is for us. We have been buying real butter for the last several months because of it. Comment and let us know what you know about margarine.
Butter is a dairy product made by churning cream or milk to separate the solid components from the liquid. The solids that disperse form butter.
Margarine was developed as a substitute for butter and is made from plant-based oils such as canola oil, palm fruit oil and soybean oil. Salt and other ingredients that keep the flavor and texture of the spread acceptable to the consumer such as maltodextrin, soy lecithin and mono or diglycerides are commonly added as well. Oils such as olive oil, flaxseed oil and fish oil may also be used.
