(ARA) – When it comes to cooking with healthier ingredients, health experts praise olive oil for its ability to lower bad cholesterol levels and its high content of “good” fats. And with people more concerned than ever about their health and what they put in their bodies, cooking with olive oil has become a popular practice in American cuisine to tap into the oil’s health benefits.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, consuming about two tablespoons of olive oil per day may reduce your risk of heart disease.
While many people know that olive oil is good for them, opportunities to use it may not be as obvious, and they may miss out on the healthy aspects of olive oil in their diet.
For those people, Land O’Lakes Butter with Olive Oil offers a way to cook with taste of butter, while including the simple goodness of olive oil. It has 50 percent less cholesterol, zero grams of trans fat per serving and 45 percent less saturated fat than traditional butter.
In addition to spreading on a piece of bread or toast, it’s a good substitute for using butter for everyday cooking.
