Margarine VS Butter … is 10 cal and 1 gram of Fat worth it ???

I have noticed that you can go natural without going broke. First I am moving from margarine to butter.

Let us compare these two Items

Margarine Ingredients:
Water
Soybean oil
Palm Oil
Palm Kernal
Oil
Salt
Emulsifiers (mono & oiglycerides, soy lecithin, propylene glycol, monostearate)
preservatives (sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, calcium disodium, edta)
whey
citric acid
natural and artificial flavors
vitamin a palmitate
beta carotene (color)
milk
soy

Butter ingredients
Pasteurized cream
salt
milk

Hmmm….ok…. lets check the nutrition label

………………….Margarine….. Butter
Calories …….. 60 …………. 70
Fat ……. ………6g …………..7g
Sat fat … ……….1.5g ……….. 5g
trans fat …………0 …………. 0
poly unsat fat……..3g ………….0
mono unsat fat……. 1.5g …………..0
cholesterol ……… 0 …………..20mg
sodium………….. 125mg …………..55mg

Yea I will be going with the natural butter, no name brand, $1.99. I am afraid for 10 cal and 1 g of fat it isn’t worth all the unpronounceable artificial ingredients.
