My butter substitute is Smart Balance light with Flaxseed oil, 50 calories per tablespoon.
It is a whipped oil blend spread comprised of canola oil, palmfruit oil, soybean, flaxseed oil and olive oils. 4% sodium.

I will not revert to the other margarines I used to use. Adding to food - taste is enhanced
as well as with mrs. fleischmann's margarine.

I've been using Olivina - made from olive oil - no cholesterol. It's soft out of the fridge which helps me use less but I've also been mashing avocado onto bread for sandwiches instead or using no fat Miracle Whip. Any place I used to use butter or margarine, if I can substitute, I will. Of course nothing will work on baked potatoes but the real thing so I just use it. Lately, I've been using Yams in place of potatoes with good results. Don't need margarine on them, just a sprinkle of Romano cheese. I use no-stick pans with a little peanut or olive oil for frying - if I fry anything anymore.

Which is the best product to use in place of butter. Do you have a favorite for low saturated/trans fat and for flavor/ease of use? Do you use it for spreading and cooking?
