  • About

Margarine is a butter substitute made from animal or vegetable fat, or a mixture of both. It is available in solid form, which contains a higher proportion of saturated fat, and in soft form, which contains a higher percentage of water. It may be used for spreading, baking and frying, but is not a patch on butter for flavour.
