Which should we use butter or margarine and why?
- 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.
- 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
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.
- 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.
- Finally we made pure butter by shaking double cream.
Try this at home. It is so tasty!
