Butter is more fattening than olive oil?
False – Olive oil is more “fattening” than butter. First, fats do not make us fat if we are restricting carbohydrate intake. Second, butter is the lower fat fat – it’s 20 percent water. Third, butter contains 15-17 percent short and medium chain fats that are sent directly to the liver and do not enter the general circulation. Olive oil is 100% fat and only contains the long chain fatty acids that enter the general circulation.
