Best Butter Alternatives

Don't Do Butter? Here Are Top Replacement Picks From a Nutritionist

Butter vs. margarine? What's better to spread on your bread? It's an age-old debate, but ever since trans fats have been essentially phased out of margarine products and butter-like spreads, health professionals recommend them over butter, which is rich in saturated fats. Butter alternatives are also lower in overall calories and total fat. The best spreads are made from vegetable oils and have no partially hydrogenated oils.

Look for spreads that provide per one-tablespoon serving:

  • No more than 2.5 grams saturated fat
  • Up to 80 calories
  • No partially hydrogenated oils
  • No trans fats
