Pass The Butter .... Please

          This is interesting . .. . .

Margarine  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   

 DO  YOU KNOW.. 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.

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53%  over  eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent  Harvard  Medical Study.   

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in  other foods..

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few   
Only  because  they are added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of  other foods.

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years .

And now, for Margarine..

Very high in Trans fatty acids .

Triple  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 fold.

L owers quality of breast milk.

Decreases immune response.

Decreases insulin response.

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

Margarine  is but ONE MOLECULE away  from being PLASTIC!

This  fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life  and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is  added, cha nging the molecular structure of the substance).   

You can try this yourself:

Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area.  Within a couple of days you will note 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 no nutritional  value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny  microorganisms  will not find a home to grow.  Why? Because it is nearly plastic .  Would you melt your Tupperware and  spread that  on your toast?

Don -- my eldest son was the buyer for goodman fielder wattie for about a decade -- his area was buying ALL the ingredients for marg including packaging-- Im sending this to him to ask his thoughts on it.

He was a real supporter of marg when he worked there -- but he changed his mind really quickly.

Ill let u know what he says.

Weve always been butter eaters - we go through about 8lb a week.

According to the son - this email was begun around the time they had that butter is better than margarine -- it was begun by the butter ad campaign people. 

He said Logicol is about the only marg he would use -- though it is about $7 a tub.  He uses butter - wont touch marg now.  He agreed that it IS one molecule from plastic.

Logicol has plant sterols in it -- and he guarantees that they will be the next product added to our foods -------------

Plant sterols are extracts of certain plants that, when ingested, inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the small intestine. Thus, dietary cholesterol never gets into the system. Two plant sterols are now available in a spreadable form, as a substitute for margarine.
An extract of the soy plant – sitosterol – is available in a product called Take Control (Lipton). And an extract of pine needles – sitostanol – is available in a similar product called Benechol (McNeil). Neither product tastes exactly like margarine and are unsuitable for cooking, but most people find them to be reasonably good to eat. Spreading 1 – 2 tablespoons of the spread on bread each day, as a substitute for margarine (and, of course, in combination with a low fat diet,) can reduce LDL cholesterol levels by up to 10%.

When margarine was introduced in NZ it had to be priced so as not to compete with butter. I don't remember just how much excess profit was made by it's manufactures but apparently it was MUCH cheaper to produce.

It tasted slimy, tried it once then never again.

I have no idea of the price difference per 50g of any of the substitutes available today.
