Love spreading that smooth ‘golden goodness’ onto your bread? Are you in a dilemma whenever you have to decide between butter or margarine? The team at FoodSavvy.sg scoured supermarket shelves and discovered that other than butter and margarine, a third product type, ‘fat spread’, is also displayed alongside the former. How are butter, margarine and fat spread different from one another? Our team dug into the Singapore Food Regulations and summarized into a table, the permitted ingredients in butter, margarine and fat spread respectively. We hope you find the table informative and useful. Have you been ‘spreading’ the right ‘love’?
