Butter or Margarine

The discussion over Butter or Margarine, which is better? You will get to know at the end. Butter and Margarine made off? 

Butter made from the lactose sugar is present in fermented cream. European style butter is made this way, by incorporating bacterial cultures in a manner much like yogurt. It often has a tangier taste than fresh cream butter, which is (in comparison) known as “Cultured butter” and “sweet butter.” It has a healthy fat composition than regular butter, giving it a creamy texture and taste.

Margarine is not butter at all, hence its new name. It’s a blend made from mostly of vegetable oils. It is entirely plant-based and dairy-free, including genetically modified substances like corn, soybean, or canola oil. These oils are often heat-processed, unlike the cold-pressed oils coconut and olive oil, and high in trans fats, which can lead to greater risk for heart disease.
