First there was the press release in my inbox saying that butter is one of the healthy fats we should eat more of 'to encourage weight loss and optimum health'. Hot on its heels came a new book by a celebrity chef recommending we cook with butter or coconut oil but not olive oil which 'becomes oxidised when heated'.

After decades of being told to avoid butter because of its saturated fat content, why is it being hyped as a health food? It's a question I asked nutritionist Rosemary Stanton, not just because she's a wise voice on food and health but because she's been known to spread (a little) butter on bread herself.

   "Saturated fat has not turned into a saint.."

But in terms of health benefits butter doesn't get Stanton's stamp of approval. Although some recent analyses of observational studies suggest that total intake of saturated fat may not correlate with heart disease, that's not the same as saying that saturated fat is heart healthy, she says.

"Saturated fat has not turned into a saint. It's just that the studies that have concluded  that reducing saturated fat doesn't stop  heart disease haven't looked at what people are eating instead of saturated fat, " she explains.
