    butter is about 82% fat, spread is usually between 30% and 40%, theres a fair bit o difference points wise... what makes you think they are the same?

    If you go to the eSource and put in 50g of margarine, then 50g of butter, they're both coming in at 11pp?

    Margarine and spread are just loads of weird ingredients formulated in a lab. As I said in another post, I can't see that its more healthy.
