Butter versus margarine – are they good for you?

Is butter good for you? Now, at least for me, that’s become a good question to ask. But, in order to answer that question, we have to have something to compare butter with. Let’s compare butter versus margarine.

Again, I studied from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook by Sally Fallon with Mary G. Enig, Ph.D.

What is butter?

One churns (stirs or agitates) milk or cream long enough and you come up with butter. Butter comes from cows’ milk usually, and machines are used to churn the milk or cream until it turns to butter. Assuming the butter is organic, that’s it. No further “ingredients” to make it last longer on the shelf. Or some ingredient used for coloring to make it look yellow.
