Butter or Margarine - Choose

Having Worked at Unilevers Premier Margarine Factory in the UK for 1 Year, 

as a Management Trainee, and then in Sri Lanka Managing Margarine 

Manufacture, I can safely admit that what you are about to read is true !!

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 colouring and sold it to people to use 

in place of butter.

How do you like it?   They have come out with some 

clever new flavourings....       
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 

grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine..    
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 and only because  

they are added!     
Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can 

enhance the flavours 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    
Triples risk of coronary heart disease ...    

Increases  total cholesterol  and LDL  (this is the bad 

cholesterol) and  lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good 

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..    
Lowers quality of  breast milk    
Decreases Immune Response.    
Decreases Insulin Response..    
And  here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE 

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from 

beingPLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT    

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding 

margarine for life and anything else that is 


(this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular 

structure of the substance).      

Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your 


or shaded area.  Within a couple of days you will notice 

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 micro-organisms will not a find 

a home to grow.

Why?   Because it is nearly plastic .

Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on 

your toast?                 

Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to butter 

them up')!
