Hydrogenation and you  

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello again!
This time I am looking for your personal, unbiased opinion, based on your studies and writings.
Like everything else Butter has had its champions and demons. One day it's healthy for you, one day it's evil.....eeevil I tell you! Same thing with eggs.
What is your feeling about butter, butter subs, oils etc. What do you tend to use?

And eggs, any thoughts?

My feeling is that the choice of fats and oils is only one small piece of the health picture. These ingredients do affect our body chemistry for better and for worse, but their effects can be minimized or multiplied by the other things we eat with them. Most butter substitutes these days contain a lot of trans fatty acids, which seem to be the worst for us, and they don’t taste as good as butter or work as well in a lot of applications. So I don’t use them. In daily cooking I use more olive oil than anything else, then butter and canola oil. Eggs do contain a lot of cholesterol, but for a variety of reasons they don’t tend to raise our blood cholesterol, and they’re a good source of some important antioxidants. So I eat eggs regularly.
