Your heart is the center of your health... and everything that we do.
Improving the heart health of Canadians
Becel has always believed in the importance of caring for your heart. That is the reason Becel margarine was created, and that's the reason we continue to develop new varieties of Becel. We are also dedicated to educating Canadians about the importance of heart healthy living.
Everything we do, from new product development to consumer education is based on scientific research and cardiovascular health and nutrition.
A short history of Becel
Becel was first on the scene to develop a healthier alternative to existing spreads. We've continued to find ways to keep making margarine even better, expanding our line-up with innovative new products based on the science of heart health. Today, Becel is the leading margarine brand in Canada, with a strong commitment to heart health innovation and education.
Becel or butter?
Which one should you choose? That depends. Before you decide, remember each food choice has to be considered in context of your diet as a whole and that all fats should be eaten in moderation.
But also remember that not all fats are created equal - it's not just the quantity, but it's also the type of fat that you consume that you need to pay attention to. For example, a healthy diet low in saturated and trans fat may reduce the risk of heart disease. Becel is low in saturated fat and has no trans fat. Infact, Becel has 80% less saturated fat than butter. Becel is also trans fat free and a source of omega-3 polyunsaturates. Butter isn't.
A small change can make a big difference
Just 2 servings of butter a day adds up to 3,650 grams of saturated fat over a year. Substitute Becel for butter, and you'll reduce it by 80%.
From our range
All Becel products are non-hydrogenated, low in saturated fat and have no trans fat.
