Dr. Oz: Diacetyl Memory Loss
Dr. Oz said there are many butter substitutes out there, but before he told viewers what they were, he invited Georgia on to the stage to ask her about her fake butter intake. Georgia said she saw the study which linked diacetyl to memory loss and possibly Alzheimer’s and she said she does not want that to happen to her. Being a lawyer, she said she needs to keep her brain sharp.
Dr. Oz reiterated that the true connection will not be seen for years and not until we find out how the body is going to process these foreign chemicals it has never seen before.
Dr. Oz: Where’s the Diacetyl?
Dr. Oz said everyone should look at the ingredient list before buying anything. Dr. Oz said if the ingredient list says artificially sweetened or artificial flavor, we must assume the ingredient is diacetyl. Dr. Oz said it not necessary for the company to put diacetyl in the ingredients list. And if you have no idea if it is in the product or not, Dr. Oz said to not take the chance.
Plant Sterols: Butter Alternatives
Gerogia said she tries to be healthy and read labels and wanted to know what a better alternative to diacetyl would be. Dr. Oz said plant sterols are a safe and healthy option.
Dr. Oz: Whipped Butter Alternative
Dr. Oz knows many of his viewers can be picky about what they eat, and rightfully so after this episode, so he chose whipped butter as a great alternative to butter and fake butter. He said it has half the calories and half the fat of butter and none of the chemicals in fake butter. The whipped butter also has air in it which makes it look bigger, tricking the eyes, and the body will enjoy going back to eating butter.
