Re: Silly Butter Question
My opinion is to just use real butter without the additives. It tastes better and there are lots of studies that say butter is actually better for you than margarine. Margarine is a man made product using vegetable oils (ie canola, soy, olive, corn, etc) that are partially or fully hydrogenated. I don't want to have a thing t do with it but if you are interested in it cooking properties then I would look into an Alton Brown episode because he goes over the properties of butter, margarine, and crisco lard.
This woman does a great job of explaining the difference between butter and margarine: http://nourishedkitchen.com/food-war...-vs-margarine/
Here is part of the Butter episode of Alton Brown Season 3 Episode 8:
