Canola Harvest Spread vs Butter – The Proof
Which is healthier… butter or Canola Harvest spreads?
- Butter is made from animal fat, which is high in cholesterol and saturated fat.
- Canola Harvest spread has 0g of trans fat, cholesterol free and has only 1.5g of saturated fat per serving.
For adults who would benefit from lowering their LDL cholesterol, the American Heart Association recommends:
- Reducing saturated fat to no more than 5 to 6 percent of total calories.
- For someone eating 2,000 calories a day that’s about 11 to 13 grams of saturated fat.
- Reducing the percent of calories from trans fat.
Not all spreads are created equal.
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 spread does not contain hydrogenated oil and is trans-fat free.
There are many differences between spreads available in the store. Many consumers recognize the quality difference in Canola Harvest Original Spread compared to other popular spreads. Our spread contains 70% vegetable oil contributing to the texture, moisture and browning properties of food. It also has a fabulous buttery taste and is spreadable directly from the refrigerator.
