Butter is considered to be fairly high in cholesterol because it is made from animal fat and therefore contains a high amount of saturated fat and cholesterol. Margarine on the other hand is a good alternative for those who want to stay healthy and get the same good taste without having to feel guilty about it. Margarine is high in all of the â€œgoodâ€ fats which are actually health for our bodies.
Butter is filled with the â€œbadâ€ kind of fat that you donâ€™t want to put too much of in your body. It is filled with what is called low-density lipoprotein which is considered to be a bad type of cholesterol that you want to avoid putting into your body at all costs. High cholesterol levels can lead to a number of health problems later on, which is why it is so important to find healthy alternatives.
