Keeping My Promise -- to Lower Cholesterol and Sodium in my Diet

Pros:soft spread, butter taste, health benefits, can be used in cooking if desired

Cons:packaging could be improved

The Bottom Line: Promise Buttery Spread tastes like butter and has helped me maintain a healthier diet.  I would suggest one change though.


My doctor suggested I lower cholesterol and sodium in my diet.  I love butter and dreaded trying to find a replacement.  Promise Buttery Spread is a close substitute in flavor, and much healthier than butter.  Here is why I keep buying it and a change I’d like the manufacturer to adopt.


Description

I buy Promise in the 15-ounce package that contains two tubs.  The plastic containers each have a plastic lid that easily lifts off.  The manufacturer states this spread can be used for spreading, cooking and baking.  Keep the tubs refrigerated.

This product has zero trans fat, zero cholesterol and no hydrogenated oils.  It also contains 3,200 mg Omega 6 LA per serving, and 550mg of Omega 3 ALA per serving.  The spread also contains Vitamins A, D, E, B6 and B12.


My Experiences

I’m impressed with how much this Promise spread tastes like butter.  It is excellent.  The spread has a soft smooth texture.  Dip a knife into the tub and the spread easily comes out and spreads evenly over bread.  I tend to apply a light hand since this spread likes to absorb into whatever I am “buttering”.  When eating toast, bread or using this spread on potatoes or other foods, I feel as though I am eating butter.

When cooking egg or sauteing onions, I like to add a bit of butter to the pan.  For awhile, I tried using this Promise spread in place of butter, but I didn’t like the consistency of it in the pan.  It melts fine, but I will only use Promise for cooking if I run out of butter.  Instead, I changed my “butter habits”.  Instead of placing a nice pad of butter in the pan, I take the butter stick and rub it on the pan bottom to coat it.  This uses less butter and works well for me.  If I need to butter a baking dish, I will also use real butter.

Comparing a one tablespoon serving of the two products (Promise Buttery Spread vs. Land O’Lakes) … Promise wins.  Promise has: zero cholesterol, 85mg sodium, and 8g fat.  The butter contains 30mg cholesterol, 95mg sodium, and 11g fat.


The Change

One thing bothers me about this product.  When the lid is removed, there is no inner seal protecting the contents.  This opens up the possibility for contamination since the tubs rely on the plastic lid firmly staying in place by the surrounding cardboard packaging.  The tubs can easily slide free from the cardboard outer wrap, too.  I suggest to the manufacturer that they place an inner seal over the spread to protect it.


Purchasing

A two-pack carton of this Promise spread costs less than $3.00 from my local grocery store.


Summary

Adjusting my diet is working though.  Since May, I have lost 30 pounds.  I pay attention to packaging, thereby reducing products with too much cholesterol, sodium, and carbohydrates.  I am eating more unprocessed food, too.  While I’m not a huge exercise buff, I do keep moving and enjoy yoga.  Promise Buttery Spread is one way I’m staying healthier.

I hope you found this review useful.

Enjoy the day,
