Not all margarine is created equal
Non-hydrogenated vs Hydrogenated
Years ago, before trans fat was confirmed to have an association with heart disease, most margarine on the market was made using partially hydrogenated oils resulting in trans fats.
Some margarines, primarily hard, contain trans fats and are unhealthy. Canola Harvest margarine does not contain hydrogenated oil and is trans fat free.
68% vs 80% Vegetable Oil
Other margarines, contain only 68% vegetable oils and will not perform as well as Canola Harvest margarines which are 80% vegetable oil contributing to the best results or best possible texture, moisture and browning properties of foods.
