Like my grandmother before me, I have never had a tub of margarine in the house.
Perhaps thanks to her, my gut instinct has always told me that butter is better for you.
Not only does butter taste incomparably better, it’s a natural product that human beings have been eating and cooking with for centuries without damaging their health.
Why swap it for margarine, a highly synthetic and unpleasant-tasting concoction laced with additives and cheap, low-grade oils refined on an industrial scale?
Especially, if I tell you that without colourings margarine isn’t yellow at all, but actually an appetite-crushing shade of sludgy grey.
The truth: Evidence shows butter is better for you than margarine despite decades of advice to the contrary.
