    Watched the video while cooking. I admit that I couldn’t hear 1/2 of the video. Ultimately, I didn’t get the main message. If Margarine has more negative impact to our body. I know butter is okay to our health like milk and yogurt (from the point anything has negative impact to us if we take excessive amount of anything, even water).

    Old and innacurate claims on saturated fat.... there has never been any evidence blaming cholesterol for heart disease. I hate margarine 🤢

    This flies in the face of what many are now realising. I am no specialist, but anything to do with grain oils - sold as vegetable oils - are bag for you just as wheat is not good for you - especially refined wheat flour. The consumption of refined wheat and sugars lead to insulin intolerance, diabetes and heart disease. Your body needs saturated fat. Do the research. Food companies have been lying to us for years. Previously hydrogenated oils where used to lubricate machines and now you are consuming them.

    Don’t take my word for it, do the research…….

    Margarine is infinitely better because it doesn’t pay to abuse cows, and kill calf’s. Both are unhealthy.

  • Andina Rizkia

    My mom hates milk and its processed stuffs. Heavy cream? Nope. Butter? Nope. That's why we always use margarine. While it has different flavor, if it's used as incorporated ingredients in food it still gives the savoriness needed. It's also still great on warm toast (but without the milk flavor to it), or to saute aromatics and fry stuff. However, if you need to make something like buttercream, it is always better using good quality butter.
    And if you still want to preach on how butter is well, better, go on and blab tbh. My mom dislikes it and will often spit out milk tasted food, and highly avoid milk related things other than usual milk (she doesn't even want to drink it. She only used it in food). We'll continue using margarine. She isn't a picky eater, but everybody got at least that ONE thing that they hate to consume right?

    Make all the comparisons, factual or marketing ploys. Margarine is disgusting in taste and appearance. There is no substitute for sweet butter....I'm 67 and can easily pass for 47...I have never been hospitalized nor dealt with any malignant body functions. I love butter, ice cream, salt on my red meat, beer and i detest anything that begins with diet, low cal or imitation, I am not even close to overweight and I wouldn't want to be a skinny lightweight no matter how healthy they claim to be..however I have never smoked a cigarette and will not eat fried or fast foods....my life long philosophy has and will continue to be if you like how it tastes eat it, if it looks like a good time, do it.

    Butter is natural wheres margarine is not found in nature.

    Margarine should be re-classified as a carcinogenic!

    Saturated fat is good for you, your body needs it to function correctly, scientific fact!

    I can't really get off Butter or Margarine... I use it on everything especially frying stuff like garlic and eggs which give it a better taste IMO. I also pour the Margarine/Butter that I used to fry said garlic into Pasta.
