Happy Food News

The makers of my favourite low calorie butter alternative have decided to remove ALL partially hydrogenated oils from their tubbed butterery spreads by this time next year.

“After an extensive three-year research and development effort, Unilever has begun removing the partially hydrogenated vegetable oil from I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®, Brummel & Brown®, Shedd’s Spread Country Crock® and Imperial® soft spread products sold in tub formats, thereby eliminating the artificial trans fats in these products. The company committed to doing so while ensuring that the saturated fat content of these spreads remains as low as possible (2 grams or less per serving), consistent with dietary guidance to limit saturated fat intake. Product taste and performance will not change.”


Great news for me as I struggle with the do I or don’t I eat it. At 45 calories a Tbsp and 2 g of saturated fat its hard to pass up, but I really am trying to remove all Frankenfoods from my diet so this is one more step in the right direction.
