Better butter

Most Mexican butters contain margarine, check the labels. The person who owns the oeganic food store on Higos, told me that only Alpura is the only company that doesn't. I haven't verified this because I buy my butter from the organic store. I believe her as she gave me the name of a competing product without hesitation. Perhaps people are nostalgic for the taste of margarine, I however am not. I completely understand bringing your own. The label of the mentioned lurpak, second ingredient is canola oil.

Somebody's been pulling your leg. La mantequilla es mantequilla y la margarina es margarina. I don't use margarina, only mantequilla, and I like mine sin sal. If you find a package that says its "mantequilla de vaca" but that contains "margarina" please send me a photo. Mantequilla Lurpak is 100% crema de leche de vaca.

Here's a Profeco study of mantequillas and margarines from a few years back but still quite relevant today.
