Butter v Margarine 5th Class Room 6

 

Which should we use butter or margarine and why?

  1. First we conducted a survey of the butters and margarines used in Fifth class room 6.
    Then we made a tally chart and bar chart displaying our findings.

  2. Then we identified the ingredients each of these contained. We made a stacked bar chart of these ingredients.     
    Some margarines contained 9 /10 ingredients including preservatives, colouring, Emulsifiers, acidity regulator 
    Findings:   
    We were shocked to discover that Flora and Benecol contained the exact same ingredients as stock margarine even though they were over 4 times the price.

  3. Then we investigated which butter or margarine would go off first. Findings:
    a) Pure butter went mouldy after 10 days.
    b) However, after 3 months none of the margarines have gone off.

  4. Finally we made pure butter by shaking double cream. 
    Try this at home.    It is so tasty!
