New study: Cooking with butter may be healthier than cooking with vegetable oil


Here’s yet another reason not to fear natural saturated fats, like butter. A new re-analysis of unpublished findings from an older study finds no benefit of replacing butter with vegetable oils.

If anything, there’s some evidence that cooking with corn oil instead of butter may actually be worse for heart health!

What’s more, when the researchers look at all available studies replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated omega-6 fats, they find zero overall benefit for heart health.

Butter seems to be just as good for your heart as other fats. On top of that, your taste buds are almost guaranteed to be better off!
