- Butter contains two cholesterol-raising ingredients: dietary cholesterol and saturated fat.
- Because butter is high in saturated fat, this increases levels of LDL or the "bad" cholesterol.
- By substituting a margarine product for butter over a week’s time, you can save yourself a whole day’s worth of saturated fat.
- Research continues to clearly show that margarine products are the best choice of tablespreads when it comes to biomarkers related to heart health.
- Margarine, in conjunction with an overall healthy diet, can benefit people on a low cholesterol diet.
In my opinion, it's very clear that margarine is the clear winner here.
