Pass The Butter ... Please.

This is interesting
. .. .

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 coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings....

The difference between margarine and butter?
Read on to the end...gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.
Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams;compared to 5 grams for margarine.
can increase heart disease in women by53% over eating the same amount of butter,
According to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

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!
tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.
has been around for centuries where margarinehas been around for less than 100 years.
And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans
fatty acids.

Triples risk of coronary
heart disease ....

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.

insulin response.

And here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

is but ONE MOLECULE away from beingPLASTIC... 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).
Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or 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)

* it does not rot or smell differently because it has nonutritional value;
&... &...Nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny micro-organisms 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?

Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to butter them up')!

Chinese Proverb:

When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it,
You have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Pass the BUTTER PLEASE !!!!!

    I've always liked butter better, but as a kid oleo was so much cheaper that's what mom bought. Somewhere in the mid 70's I found out about them having the same fat content and that was it. I'll do without before eating margarine. Heard most of that stuff above a little bit later but it really only served to tell me what my taste buds already knew. And just check out the texture of baked goods with butter vs oleo. The difference is amazing.

    An old Gentleman I knew, 20+ YEARS ago, & who owned an Organic & Natural Food market I LOVED,
    Once was asked...
    If he could make everyone in the World stop eating just 1 thing, that was bad for them...what would that be?
    His reply was...Margarine!
    & for exactly those reasons & more. Plus, he said, due to the amounts individuals consume, with a belief & an understanding that, it is somehow better for them than butter!
    I personally NEVER have intentionally eaten margarine since!

    And that means absolutely nothing at all.

    Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are only one molecule apart as well.. The two elements are extremely diffent

    Carbon monoxide is the Common type of fatal poisoning and is flamable. Carbon dioxide is neither.

    I do have a life. But I know that a molecule makes a massive difference and you apparently do not.

    I suggest you educate youself and start with kindergarten.

    OK... but what about the nutritional value? Butter has it head's over margarine... and flavour, too...
  • Cameleon Link 2012/09/21 05:06:10
    I definitley agree that the flavor of butter is superior. But is does depend on how the margarine is made as to what the nutritional value is.

    butter vs margarine.

    Serving Size and Calories

    Although butter and margarine servings vary according to use and recipe, the USDA provides statistics for 1 tbsp. of each in order to make meaningful comparison.

    A tbsp. of unsalted butter contains 100 calories, all of which come from fat.
    A tbsp. of unsalted margarine contains 101 calories, of which 100 come from fat.

    Fat Profile

    One tbsp, or 14g, of margarine carries 11.3 g of total fat.
    These fats are split between 3.8 g of saturated and 7.5 g of unsaturated fat.
    A tbsp. of butter carries 11.4 g of total fat.
    More than seven of these are saturated fat.

    Carbohydrates and Protein

    Neither margarine nor butter carry any significant amounts of carbohydrates or protein in 1 tbsp.


    One tbsp. of butter carries 7 percent of your USDA recommended daily allowance of vitamin A, 2 percent of your vitamin E and 1 percent of your vitamin K.
    The same amount of margarine carries 10 percent of your vitamin A, 4 percent of your vitamin E and 12 percent of your vitamin K.
