New research indicates that milk, cheese and butter may actually be good for you. The studies show that the fats in dairy may essentially protect the heart. This means the 40 year old idea of low fat is healthy may be wrong. Emma Aer CEO of Finlandia Cheese visits with Late Night Health to discuss cheese and butter and the various health benefits of these dairy products.
It seems that even 60 years the farmers at Finlandia knew their cheese was superior. Using only high quality milk from cows raised with specific rules and guidelines, Finlandia butter and cheese ranks as one of the premiere dairy products in the world! This award-winning cheese is produced in the United States following the strict guidelines set in Finland. Finlandia is a cooperative company, made up of farmers producing milk adhering to the guidelines.
Butter has gotten a bad rap for years. With a high fat content, people have been lead to believe that butter is not healthy. Margarine, a butter replacement, (developed in the late 1860s in France as a cheap replacement for butter) has become a staple in the American (and western countries) diet. Margarine is a blend of hydrogenated oils, saturated fats and water. These oils are extremely unhealthy. Besides, margarine does not taste like butter.
