In our article you will find out what is true and what is false.
1 . Butter is a source of cholesterol causing a number of cardiovascular diseases
People eat butter for thousands of years and the role of its components in development and growth of an organism is huge. Butter contains cholesterol. This is fact, but cholesterol is extremely necessary for a number of vital systems of our body. It is a compound of cell membranes, it participates in vitamin D synthesis; bile acids and the majority of hormones need it. Brain serotonin secretion decreases without cholesterol.
At higher cholesterol levels in blood and for cardiovascular disease prevention it is recommended to eat less butter, but you should not avoid it altogether.
2 . Butter with fat content lower than 82,5 % is not a butter
To see into the matter we should understand the butter production technology clearly. First, they separate cream from cows’ milk. Its fat content is 35 %. Then cream is forwarded to a separator, where by removing moisture (the fat-free part of cream received after milk separation or, in other words, buttermilk) they receive high-fat cream containing 82,5 %, 73 %, 72,5 % of fat. That means, butter with fat content lower than 82,5 % is true butter made from natural cows’ milk cream, and it differs only by moisture content. Therefore, statements about butter containing less than 82,5 % of fat "being diluted with trans-fat" or "hydrogen" are absurd. Way back in the USSR there was GOST classification of butter by fat percentage: traditional — 82,5 %, amateur — 80 %, farmer — 72,5 %, sandwich-type — 61,5 % and tea — 50 %. It stands to mention that the less fat butter contains, the less calories it has, therefore, it is the perfect fit for those trying to limit their calorie intake.
Therefore, regardless of its fat content, butter is true natural product you can safely consume, moreover, get profit for your health.
3 . Butter is just fat and nothing else
Butter contains lots of vitamins, minor- and macro-nutrient elements, and fats. Children need butter above all others. Child's organism needs fats as it grows. Lack of fats at young age can cause degradation of mental capacity and arrested brain development. School students might have lower academic performance and learning capacity all because of lack of fats. Due to its unique chemical properties and structure butter is one of the recommended and profitable elements of baby and diet food.
Butter is a high-calorie product, though you should not put it by. 20 grams of butter a day is enough for your body to get all the necessary useful elements. Natural butter is very useful for skin, hair, eyes, bone and muscular tissue. It contains vitamins A, D, E, C, B, calcium, phospholipids (construction material for cells, especially neurons) and essential amino acids, as well as 150 fatty acids, 20 of them are indispensable!
