Pass the butter please

Post by Kitkat on Mon 07 Nov 2011, 14:39

This was sent to me via email, you know the sort of thing that gets passed around and passed on. I normally take no notice and the only place they get passed to from me is straight into the junk.

However, I do wonder how much truth there is in this:

Having Worked at Unilevers Premier Margarine Factory in the UK for 1 Year, as a Management Trainee, and then in Sri Lanka Managing Margarine Manufacture, I can safely admit that what you are about to read is true !!


Pass The Butter ... Please.


This is interesting . .. .


Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings....

DO YOU KNOW.. The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end...gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.


Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.


Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.


Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they are added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.








And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans fatty acids.

Triples risk of coronary heart disease ...

Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

Lowers quality of breast milk

Decreases immune response.

Decreases insulin response.

And here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients withPAINT
These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:


* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)


* it does not rot or smell differently because it has nonutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

I love butter, nothing else tastes the same.

But only proper butter, not that stuff that has something added so it stays soft. I tried that once and two days later there was a covering of beautiful mould all over the top. Pretty to look at, but you wouldn't want to swallow it.

Margarine is added to lots of food products, though it's often replaced these days by palm oil, which is just as bad. If people knew what they're putting into their mouths with even a simple biscuit, maybe they'd think again.

I'd hazard a guess and go with ~0%

It's only one molecule away from being plastic!

And oxygen is only one molecule away from being carbon dioxide - it doesn't mean they have 'nearly' the same properties though.

Chemistry is my 2nd subject BTW, which is why I enjoyed that one.

Lurpak.

I love fresh crusty rolls plastered in Lurpak that's come straight from the fridge.

As for health.... I wonder what heart surgeons have to say about both butter and margarine? Nothing too good I expect.

Got to be Clover for me. Nearest thing to "the real thing" except it doesn't get so hard that it breaks up the bread and you end up using lots more because it won't spread properly. (Probably cos it's got all those "paint" ingredients in it that go into the spreadable margarines).

I love me Clover, I do.

I tried a margarine once and it was so good that I couldn't believe it wasn't butter!

I forget the name of it now....

Then we'll go out for something to eat!

I don't know about Lurpak - with what you're talking about I'd have though some of that Smuterly Butterly would be more the thing!

Just this week I changed from Flora to butter after getting an email
from a mate which said the same things as kk posted here. I too have to
use far more of it as it doesn't spread well so I'm going back to my
margarine--I think--except for cooking.
Flora, Flora, I love you
On my toast with a strong, hot brew
You spread so fine I don't need much
Scales stay the same when my feet they touch
But butter sits in a greasy lump
Excess fat swelling out my rump.

lol - That could be because you were the one that passed on that email to me in the first place.


Kerrygold butter utter delish
Nothing else graces my butter dish
Melting on crumpets with my breakfast tea
No margarine copycat spreader for me.

Lurpak, Lurpak is the best kind of butter
if you don't agree then you're a bit of a nutter
stars eat it all over the nation
Lloyd-Webber, Huw Edwards and.....erm....... Harry Gration
spread it thin on toast or thick on a cob
but if you're like me, you'll have a great big knob



I'm a poet, and I'm not aware of it.

A knob and a nibble to start the day
I can't disagree with Umbo's way.


BUT .....

Clover (made by Kerrygold) ... churned with a cheery song and smothered with CLOVER

I'd rather have a knob at night
In the morning's just not right
I know most men, a.m., are ready
But I prefer my cuddly Teddy
At night when all the day's work's done
That's when I like to have my fun
So don't arouse me, please, at dawn
Instead just go and mow the lawn.
Later your reward will come
Be patient! Wait for night--and some!!

My mum used to put butter on the cats paws when they were little and when we moved into our new house , said it stopped them from straying far from home. She swore by it! Did it with the puppies when they were born too. We also had to rub butter into all our new shoes to break them in , softened the leather and stopped them pinching.

That reminds me of a trick that can be used to make it look like you have power over cats - you can make them 'wash their face' on demand.

All you do is smear a little butter onto your palm and then stroke the cat before commanding it to wash its face - which of course it does to get rid of the butter.

There's no evidence of trickery left behind either!

I wonder if any 'pet psychics' use that one?

You could smear lots of other things as well with the same result, the grubbier, the more effective.

Funny -I was only looking at a butterdish yesterday thinking how nice it was and how I haven't had butter for years. Now I want some.



So I'm gonna get some.



And don't try and stop me.

I had an email a while back about how dangerous milk is ....

Only if it's one of the ingredients in margarine.
