Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Margarine

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Margarine vs. Butter
Question: I've been brought up eating margarine all my life, and recently I have heard that margarine because it is hydrogenated is worse than butter. Is this true?

Answer: This battle has been fought for years. It is unclear which is the "best" fat; although, lower fat is probably the answer. The current hot topic is using monosaturated fats like olive oil. This actually appears to lower risk in some studies. There is a margarine which is made of olive oil. This is my preference. But, just keep the intake low.
