The Skinny on Butter

What to look for in a spread…

  • Contains no more than 2 grams of saturated fat per serving
  • 0 grams of trans fat
  • The ingredients list should not have partially hydrogenated oils listed (trans fat)
  • No added sugar
  • Choose spreadable or whipped over stick

So What should I buy? Here is a list of spreads to try!

  • Smart Beat Smart Squeeze

Note: Even though a band name might be on this list, that does not mean that every spread they make is healthy, so always check the nutrition labels.
