Our expert says:
Nowadays margarine manufacturers have to list the trans-fat content of their products on the label, so you can easily check if the margarine you have selected is trans-fat free. The best choices are "soft" or "tub" margarines which have a high polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fat content. Using lite margarine also reduces the total energy content and products, such as Flora pro-activ, contain plant sterols to lower blood cholesterol.
Moderate intake of a soft margarine should not be harmful and not expose you to trans-fats or a high saturated fat intake.
Balance your omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acid intake by eating fatty fish and using salmon oil capsules or flaxseed capsules.
