Butter is Healthier than Margarine?

Vegetables almost always had a good impression. Therefore, many people who thought that margarine made from plant materials is more healthful than butter made from animal products.

As long as there are still many who mis-use the term margarine and butter. For information, margarine is made from vegetable fat. Unlike butter derived from animal fats, usually fat cow's milk.

The use of both is almost the same, so it can be used as alternatives to each other. However, some people prefer margarine health care, because of the lower saturated fat content. Apparently, there are other things we need to consider in addition to the element.

Joanna Blythman, investigative food journalist from Britain, expression and related data margarine versus butter. He alluded margarine mixture made large-scale industrial health hazard.

Once margarine is made from hydrogenated fat. His form is solid can block the coronary arteries. "Honestly, the food is deadly," wrote a fan of butter is in the Daily Mail (07.02.13).

According Blythman, although the evidence is presented, the major companies that manufacture margarine reluctant to reformulate their product formulations. Fat hydrogenated banned in some parts of the United States because of concerns about its effect on health.

This time, the producers highlight margarine made from vegetable oils through a process of preparation of molecules of fat, so do not be so dense. Thus, it is expected to be more healthful margarine.

However, there is still nothing to worry about. According Blythman, margarine contain synthetic additives and cheap and low-quality refined oil for industrial purposes. "Without dye, yellow margarine was not at all, but a dirty gray destructive appetites," he said.

Blythman also cited a study in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The sample was middle-aged Australian men who have had heart disease or angina (chest pain when the heart muscle does not get enough blood).

The other half were asked to reduce intake of animal fat and replace it with safflower oil and margarine, while others can eat as usual. Apparently, those who eat more foods made from safflower two times greater risk of dying from any cause, including heart disease.

According Blythman, now that many are convinced that natural saturated fats, such as those contained in dairy products and meat, was good for health.

"Fat is a key component in the cell membrane, it is important to produce certain hormones. Also has an important role in the delivery and absorption of certain vitamins and minerals," Blythman argues.

He added that butter contains cholesterol which is important for brain and nervous system development. In it also contains natural antifungal substances, antioxidant, and anticancer drugs.

"It just tastes better, butter is also a natural product that has been consumed and used as ingredients cook by humans for centuries without harmful to health," Blythman promotion.
