Stay Healthy and Go Green: Use Butter or Margarine ?

Use Butter or Margarine ? Butter is a dairy product (usually beef), which usually consist of fat, water and milk proteins, while margarine is a ''replacement'' butter made from vegetable fat that manufactured using a process called hydrogenation partially (partially hydrogen process). This process aims to change the form of vegetable fat to be more solid. Many people think, because butter contains a lot of saturated fatty acids (saturated fat) is known to increase levels of fat and bad cholesterol in the body, margarine is a healthier alternative. Is that right? From various sources that I read, although margarine contains vegetable fat, does not mean we can consume them without limit. In fact there''s one thing to watch out from many margarine products, which contain trans fat (trans fatty acid) in high level. Like saturated fats, trans fat can raise levels of bad cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease. Worse, trans fat also can cause a decrease in good cholesterol in our bodies.Margarine products are usually made by a process called partial hydrogenation because in essence, this process does not change the entire unsaturated fatty acids become saturated. so just change some unsaturated fatty acids become saturated. Therefore called margarine containing partially hydrogenated oil. In the partially hydrogenation process is also typically use nickel metal catalyst. In this process the unsaturated fatty acid converted to saturated fatty acids and also produces trans fat (trans fatty acids). The more dense (solid) texture of margarine products, the higher content of trans fat in it.Somewhat horrified huh? Kids love to eat bread usually use margarine. So where should we eat better, butter or margarine? Each material has advantages and disadvantages. Which must be corrected according to me is a way of processing and how their consumption. Butter is used in the manufacture of cake to get a good texture and flavor. Vitamin content of butter is also good for health. Similarly with margarine. What about margarine products made from vegetable oil that claimed "good" for health, such as canola oil? Is this type of margarine healthier to be consumed? Not really,If he passed the process of partially hydrogenated still has result similar to that made from palm oil. Especially canola, because has unsaturated fatty acids more than with palm oil, the more unsaturated fatty acids are converted to saturated. It was also established that trans fatty acids more. " I just want to invite more mommies to look deeper into food products that we and the family consume daily, which is usually claimed to be "healthy" by the manufacturer. Indeed our own which should be more careful to look for information, which is healthy and what is not real.Here some tips about the usage of butter and margarine. * To fry choose a saturated fatty acid content more like coconut oil and palm oil. * Margarine or butter is safe to use if not through the heating process. * Use low fat butter to smear with consideration has less fat content. * For sauteing, margarine, butter or oil such as canola and olive, can be used. * Be wise when consume foods that contain margarine or butter. * Consume good oil / fat, which can either be obtained from materials containing unsaturated fatty acids such as fish oil, olive oil, canola oil.
