Food Tip


When it comes to the taste of butter versus margarine, some say butter is better. What about the health of your arteries? Butter is rich in saturated fat and cholesterol and stick margarine is rich in trans fat. Cholesterol, saturated fat, and trans fat all can raise LDL (bad) cholesterol and in addition, trans fat can also lower HDL (good) cholesterol levels. Consider a healthier option—buy a trans fat-free
tub of margarine that you enjoy, and eat it in moderation.
