    How does this Honey Butter have only 1g of fat per tbsp?

    I happened upon this product in a health store today:

    Honey-Butter Products Co., Inc. The specialist producer of Downey's Honey-Butter

    and thought it was weird that in this entire tub of "butter" there was only 16g of fat. I'm not complaining because i bought some and will use liberally on my sweet potatoes on heavy lifting days but I thought it was weird.

    Tastes amazing though.

    "The low fat, low cholesterol spread you have enjoyed since 1942" - I say discard that crap - what are the ingredients on that thing. You should either get grass-fed Butter or Raw Honey.

    Did you look at the site? Only thing in it is Honey and Butter. Nothing else.

    Both Original Downey's Honey-Butter and Cinnamon Downey's Honey-Butter are all-natural, and they contain no additives, no preservatives, no dyes, no trans-fats.

    That's why I asked you. I did look at the site but they did not publish the ingredients list. If it's true the only ingredients are honey and butter, then the reason there is so little fat is either a) it's whipped so the product is mostly air or b) it's emulsified with water so it's mostly water.
