Common Questions about Butter

What is Butter?

Butter is a dairy product made from churning cream or milk to separate the butterfat from the buttermilk. It is commonly used as a spread, as well as in cooking and baking to add flavor and texture to dishes.

Butter Health Benefits

Butter is a good source of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K. It also contains saturated fats which provide the body with a source of energy. However, it should be consumed in moderation due to its high saturated fat content.

What are the health risks associated with butter?

Butter is high in saturated fat and cholesterol, which, when consumed in excess, can contribute to an increased risk of heart disease. It is important to consume butter in moderation as part of a balanced diet to minimize these health risks.

How much butter should I eat per day?

The American Heart Association recommends limiting saturated fat intake to no more than 13 grams per day for a 2,000 calorie diet. One tablespoon of butter contains about 7 grams of saturated fat, so moderation is key. It's important to consider your overall dietary fat intake and make choices that fit within your daily fat goals.

What are the symptoms of a butter allergy?

Symptoms of a butter allergy can include hives, eczema, stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and in severe cases, anaphylaxis.
