Calories in Butter, Nutrition Facts and Benefits
How many calories in butter? Butter calories are very high. To lower the
consumption of extra calories from butter and buttery products, use low
calorie spreads or preferably, do not use it at all in your sandwiches
and use it less for cooking – use half of the recommended portion in
recipes or try olive oil as a healthier option.
However, there are exceptions to the above. When cooking at high temperatures (above 240 degrees Fahrenheit/115 degrees Celsius), only saturated fats should be used and butter is the best. To understand more, read about dietary fats.

If you must use butter, it should only be in conjunction with a healthy
diet. Butter is also preferable to a number of margarine's due to their
questionable list of contents e.g. chemicals, coloring etc.
Purchase unsalted butter instead of the salted variety, as it's better for your
digestion and allows you to control your sodium intake. Butter does
provide a good source of vitamin A.
