About Buttery Spreads
Experts agree on one important step to promoting better health: Swap out sources of saturated fat and cholesterol (hint: think solid animal fats) for healthful unsaturated fats (think plant-based oils).
These healthy oils, often referred to as “good fats” can be found in:
- Nuts & seeds
- Certain vegetables and fruits, like avocados
- Extracted from plants in the form of vegetable oils
Soft spread margarines, which are made from vegetable oils, are an excellent source of heart-healthy unsaturated fat.
