Margarine anyone?

[Reading ingredient labels]  Well our Facebook friends have decided it would be good to look closer at ingredient labels to work out what EXACTLY we are feeding our kids.  It has become an interest area for me considering my family has found such a link between food, health, behaviour and thus living better.  So here goes!
 
DESPITE the fact that margarine is a highly processed food and is claimed to be carcinogenic, take a look at the ingredient labels of these three random butter spreads. Which one would you pick?
hello headaches and undesirable behaviour...or not?

hello headaches and undesirable behaviour…or not?

There is a clear… winner without the preservatives, COLOUR (?!), soy lecithin, vegetable gum, vegetable/canola oil, FLAVOUR and several other not-so-natural ingredients. Not to mention the added vitamins that butter naturally contains. (It’s Mainland Buttersoft if you couldn’t pick it!)
I’d certainly trust a cow over a chemist once you’ve seen the process of how margarine is made.
Better yet, go for plain butter or even coconut oil.

Remember to look at the labels and pick a better alternative where there is one! And why not check out what your butter/margarine has in it’s ingredient list right now…?

Take a look at the link in the comments for more information on why plain old butter is better than margarine/spreads..
And Dr. Joseph Mercola or Changing Habits will give you all the information you need if you’re interested in knowing more about what food does or doesn’t do for our health.
