Default Everything you ever wanted (or not wanted) to know about spray butter

I finally got a response from I can't believe its not butter spray regarding the caloric & fat values for the spray when used more than 5 sprays (1 serving size). Here it is:

Hi Gretchen,

Thanks for writing!

ICBINB! is labeled in accordance with the NLEA Labeling Law Act of 1994.
ICBINB! Spray contains less than 0.5 grams of fat per serving, placing it
within the definition of "fat free" as set forth by the FDA. Our product
are labeled to reflect those guidelines.

Other guidelines are:

Saturated Fat-less than 0.5 gram per serving and level of trans fatty
acids does not exceed 1% of total fat.

Low Fat-3 grams or less per serving, OR if serving size is smaller than 3
grams per 50 grams of food.

Low Saturated Fat-1gram or less per serving AND not more than 15% of
calories from saturated fat.

Reduced or Less Fat AND Reduced or Less Saturated Fat-At least 25% less
per serving than reference food (food which it is being compared to.)

Here is the calorie and fat information of ICBINB! Spray:

12.5 sprays(2.5g) 10 calories 1g fat
25 sprays(5.0g) 20 calories 2g fat
37.5 sprays(7.5g) 30 calories 3g fat

24 sprays=1 teaspoon 17 calories 1.9g fat
72 sprays=1 tablespoon 52 calories 5.8g fat

ENTIRE BOTTLE 900 Calories = 90g Fat

One gram of fat is made of 15% Saturated Fat, 54% of Monounsaturated Fat
and 31% Polyunsaturated Fat. For further information, please contact the
ICBINB! Consumer Response Center at 1-800-735-3554.

We hope this information is helpful!
Your friends at ICBINB!


Just thought I'd pass on the info.. I was under the impression the stuff was calorie and fat free.. Boy was I wrong!

Thanks for the information Gretchen!

Well it's not calorie and fat-free but at least its very low in both.. Especially compared to regular butter.

I'm really not sure if we have this stuff in Canada, I don't think i've ever seen it.. Maybe I'll try and look for it, when I go to the grocery store tonight! I just use Molly McButter as my butter substitute.

Ummmm Gretchen... how many sprays are you using chica? I mean 12.5 sprays seems a bit much for a baked potato.

wow, that's misleading! I mean, it can't be great to drench spinach in it like I do (heehee) but still! Thanks for sharing that, Gretchen.

Well its still better than butter unless you open up the top and dump the enitre container on your food lol so I am going to stick with it. If it helps me eat my veggies then so be it.

Jessica- I use it to replace any type of oils etc like if I want some "fried chicken" per sae, I pour about a tablespoon into the pan is all!

I don't really use it aside from spritzing a few sprays onto greenbeans etc.
