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. :D

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.
