Have been noticing new ads on TV for 'Plant Butter'.

Is it more environmentally friendly than dairy butter?

Or just a revamp of the post-war Crisco push on hydrogenated veg oils that clogged/inflamed arteries moreso than dairy butter?

Haven't tried it yet but seems well at least it can't be as bad as the military surplus like Crisco and margarine/spread as it's not hydrogenated/transfatty - yet somehow still thick and hard still yet?

Dairy butter is amazing. Why would I want to wreck it with fake plant ‘butter’? It sounds like a horrible idea just like margarine.

I never have never skimped on the butter.
Some people try to say it's bad for you, but my cholesterol levels are perfectly healthy.
I suspect the walls of my arteries are too slippery for plaque to adhere.

Dairy butter or cannabis butter?
I'm going with the one that makes everything taste better.

Because people are stupid.
Daily butter is just fine, you just don't eat a whole stick for breakfast.

Everything is organic or grass fed or free range or sustainable....
People want a pill or a gimmick to lose weight instead of doing the work.
It took most people years to get fat and out of shape so doesn't it make sense that it would take years to reverse that trend?

If it's this stuff right here then:


We crafted this delicious Plant Butter that’s made with plant based oils and features oils from avocados, olives, and almonds. It tastes like dairy butter and is excellent for cooking, baking and spreading. It is Plant-Based, dairy-free and gluten-free. In addition, Country Crock® Plant Butter production results in less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of dairy butter production.


I'll pass. I do not eat vegetable butter ever. I will be the first to admit that congealed bovine lactation is not the most natural thing to eat but I don't like avocado.

I use dairy butter where it's required and plant oils; olive, grapeseed, canola, etc., where they're required. Why use only one thing all the time?

I've tried avacado butter. It's healthier than regular butter and tastes very good imo. Great for vegans and lactose intolerant.

Why harm cows if u dont have to?

Unsatured fats with omega 3 butters are probably the healthiest and plant-based products are becoming more tastier as the market meets the demand for less dairy.

However, i do understand if one just doesn't like the taste and prefers real butter.

Sounds too close to that new Burger King veggie burger-and that was horrid. No thanks-traditionalist with my food.

I will stick to real butter. Why even try the new crap that comes out. We have been eating butter for many generations. Even with the screwed up diet fed cows commercially, it is still better. It also contains adequate amounts of butyrate, we do not need the bacteria in our gut to convert plant based oils to butyrate if we eat real butter.

Read this article on the importance of butyrate in our immune system. en.wikipedia.org...

You can get butyrate in other plant-based sources that do not contain the negative effects of dairy.

www.livestrong.com...

Why try new crap? Because there are healthier options and dairy doesn't contain any special properties that make it worth drinking besides taste. You can obtain calcium, vitamin d and even butyrate through sources that aren't high in saturated fat and cholesterol.

Nutritional science is always evolving so why not try new things?

Well it was designed to taste like a whopper. I'd imagine it would suck

The grains and vegetables contribution are reliant on proper gut bacteria to work. Not everyone can live symbiotically with those microbes, their immune systems attack them in some people. They then need to consume the butyrate or butyric acid. It also takes a considerable amount of veggies to form enough butyrate, that is why they stress five to seven servings a day. I don't want to graze like a cow on veggies, I will eat the butter they produce. Some of the margarines and flavorings contain Butyrate, but not all of them do. I am not so sure that the flavorings are actually bioactive. I could not find information on that when I looked.

We eat a lot of chemistry that kills microbes so it stops us from getting help from the microbes. The stuff they spray to preserve lettuce usually kills the microbes that we need to process it. It does not wash off well, they do have some chemicals to neutralize it I think.

I've been eating a high fat, high protein, lower carb diet now for about 3 years. I've lost 50 pounds and weigh between 141 and 143 (my ideal is 140), and my blood pressure this morning was 118/74. I'm in my mid 40s.

I think different people need different diets to be healthy. Our body types and metabolisms are different because we're different.
