Despite the similar calorie content and almost identical total fat content, butter, and margarine are fundamentally different from each other. In the first case, we are talking about a natural product (albeit containing cholesterol), and in the second – about ultra-processed food.

Trans fats are substances that occur in vegetable oils when they are reheated to high temperatures. Most countries in the world regulate the content of trans fats in finished foods – they should be no more than 2% of the total amount of fat in the products.
