Margarine is not butter

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 !!

 

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?    


Both  have the same amount of calories.
 
 

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 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 cholesterol)  
 

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 PART THAT  IS  VERY INTERESTING!  
 

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away  from being PLASTIC… and shares 27 ingredients withPAINT  
 

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is  added,  changing the molecular structure of the substance).    
 

You can try this yourself:  
 

Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area.  Within a couple of days you will notice 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  nonutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms 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?
