Margarine facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Margarine is an artificial butter. It can be made from vegetable oil, or animal fat. It may also contain skimmed milk, salt and emulsifiers. Margarine is used in many baked products. It contains less fat than butter, so is often chosen instead of it. There are also "low fat" margarines, which contain even less fat.

Due to its versatility, margarine can be used as an ingredient in other food products, such as pastries, doughnuts, and cookies.
