Butter I hear you say !!! Yes good old fashioned butter. A very healthy fat that we should be including in our daily diets.
Why is butter better ?
Butter is a rich source of easily absorbed vitamin A, needed for a wide range of functions, from maintaining good vision to keeping the endocrine system in top shape.
Butter also contains all the other fat-soluble vitamins (D, E and K2), which are often lacking in todays modern diet.
Butter is rich in important trace minerals, including manganese, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium (a powerful antioxidant). Butter provides more selenium per gram than wheat germ or herring. Butter is also an excellent source of iodine.
So trash the trans fats in most spreadables these days and go back to good old fashioned butter. We have good sources here in Ireland so a little bit of butter will do you no harm.
