Butter versus margarine: the debate rages on for some reason
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.
