Most people who use this 1/2 and 1/2 version of butter hardly notice a difference in taste.
When I served this on popcorn to my guests, 100% of them said the popcorn was 'delicious!' and were shocked when I told them I used 1/2 the amount of butter on it.
Here is more information on butter:
Butter consists mostly of saturated fat and is a significant source of cholesterol. For these reasons butter is considered by some to be a contributor to health problems, especially heart disease. Margarine was recommended as a substitute, since it is higher in unsaturated fat and contains little or no cholesterol, but in recent years, it has been shown that the trans fats contained in partially hydrogenated oils used in typical margarines significantly raise undesirable LDL cholesterol levels as well.
Butter has a whopping 51% Saturated Fat per 100g (this is the BAD fat).
Olive Oil - only 14 % -- a much healthier choice!
