I Can't Believe It's Not Butter

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
I just started the Daniel Fast (day 3) and would like to know if I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is okay if I was attempting to follow the diet as strickly as possible? Michael
Sorry Michael, you should avoid it.
"Although the manufacturer claims that the product contains no trans fat, this is not true. Checking the ingredients listed on the package shows hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils as part of the makeup. Hydrogenating oils necessarily adds trans fats to food."

We use olive oil in the place of butter. Add a little salt if you like salted butter. Don't use olive oil for high heat frying. We prefer extra virgin olive oil. For high temp cooking, we use Colza, Canola and other healthy non-animal fats. They are OK in moderation. Use as little oil as possible. French fries have too much oil. Spray some Pam or vegetable oil on your fries and bake them.
