About Margarine

  • The butter substitute made mostly from vegetable oils is not really a healthy food option.
  • 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.

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.

Cooking oils

Cooking oils tend to get their name from the nuts, seeds, fruits, plants, or cereals they're extracted from.

They're characterised by their high-fat content, including saturated fat, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Consuming too much saturated fat - more than 20g for women and 30g for men per day - makes the body produce cholesterol that increases the risk of heart disease.
