Our expert says:
From a slimming point of view you would select the margarine with the lowest energy or kJ content (e.g. a lite margarine). However from a health point of view, esp if you have increased cholesterol levels, you would select the margarine with the highest monounsaturated fatty level (e.g. Canola or olive oil margarine). Margarine with a high polyunsaturated fat content which is "soft" and sold in a tub (as opposed to "hard brick" margarine) is also a better option from a health point of view.
Hope this helps
