Butter versus margarine

  1. Popularly, butter and margarine, and even low-fat margarine, seem to be the same product. You spread it on your bread (tub) and you can also bake and fry with butter and a packet of margarine. Yet there is a big difference between butter and margarine, because butter is made from natural ingredients, while margarine, including low-fat margarine, is an industrial product and artificial butter. The title above could just as well have been 'Natural butter versus artificial butter'. Moreover, 'Artificial butter' was really the name that this product bore until 1889. It was only after this year that it was officially renamed Margarine. But what's the difference now? Is butter healthier than margarine, or vice versa, or does it all make no difference?

Butter

  1. Butter consists of minimum 80% and maximum 90% milk fat Butter is a purely natural product to which nothing unnatural is added. The fats in butter are mostly saturated fats Butter contains natural "ruminant trans fats" that do not harm health

Margarine

  1. Consists of minimum 80% and maximum 90% vegetable fats Is a processed product. Everything in it must be added. So also vitamins The fats in margarine are mostly unsaturated fats Margarine contains artificial trans fats that are dangerous to health

But, does this by definition mean that unnaturally produced margarine is unhealthy?

Spoiling of butter and margarine

  1. Insects or bacteria have no influence on margarine. Just put an open tub of margarine or low-fat margarine somewhere in a corner. You do not have to worry that it will mold or rot or stink because it will not attract a fly. Not even microorganisms can grow on it. Butter, on the other hand, can start to mold. When you see black dots appearing in the butter, you can no longer eat it.
