About

Modern margarines can be made from any of a wide variety of animal or vegetable fats, mixed with skimmed milk, salt, and emulsifiers. Like butter, margarine is about 80% fat, 20% water and solids, flavored, colored, and fortified with vitamin A, and sometimes D, to match butter's nutritional contribution to the human diet.

Margarines made from vegetable oils are especially important in today's market, as they are lower in saturated fat than butter and are generally promoted as the healthier option, although this view has been challenged.

Three main types of margarine are common:

  • Traditional margarines, which contain saturated fats, are mostly made from vegetable oils.
  • Blended margarines, high in mono- or polyunsaturated fats, which are made from safflower, sunflower, soybean, cottonseed, grapeseed, or olive oil.
  • Hard, generally uncolored margarine for cooking or baking. (Shortening)
