I was wondering is Smart Balance [non hydrogenated]a good alternative to Butter or Margerine?? Thanks for your help! I just was made aware of you from my friend Karen in CA...I will call again! Rick
ANSWER: Hi Rick. Yes, Smart Balance (at Safeway) and Earth Balance (at Whole Foods) are both excellent healthy fat sources, both containing omega-3 fats and NO trans fats. On my web site I have a very detailed survey of all the butter substitutes, their ingredients, which contain trans fats but have "zero trans fats" on the label (i.e. which ones are lying), and I rank all of them in terms of health value.
