The butter versus margarine debate played out in the Globe recently, as companies like Becel (the one Sarah Polley refuses to endorse) pack in the omega-3s and pull out the saturated fats. The 1,000-word article doesn’t definitively say if one is better than the other. Rather, it talks about how the omega-3s in margarine aren’t as good as the ones found in fish oils. To save readers some time, here’s the bottom line: as long as people aren’t eating sticks of butter like Popsicles or scooping margarine like ice cream, both fats can be consumed in small doses.
