Margarine Vs. Butter

Margarine is marketed as a healthier alternative to butter, which is not true. It may seem like butter but is mainly manufactured using vegetable oils, salt, emulsifiers and trans-fats. Most of it isn’t healthy.

Butter, on the other hand, is made from milk, which is a topic of a lot of health debates but has been used without any problem for thousands of years. It is a good source of vitamins and calcium while being high in fats.

  • It was initially created as a cheap butter substitute by French chemist Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès for Emperor Napoleon III, from milk and beef tallow.
  • The margarine in the market today hardly has any milk, and most varieties are vegan.
  • It is good for lactose intolerant people, who cannot consume milk and milk products.
  • People who are having problems with saturated fats and animal fats can switch to vegan margarine.
