Exclamation 0 Calorie Spray Butter info!

So some of you may already know this or this may have been brought up before, but I just found out... So for anyone that doesn't know yet...

I love the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray! 0 calories with butter taste every now and then when you need that.. 'I'm eating something bad' feeling lol. Well I use it 2 or 3 times a month but it's never just a few sprays so I thought I wonder how many calories there is for a bunch of sprays! here's the info I found:

The "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray has ZERO calories if you use just a few spritzes. *

12.5 sprays is 10 calories and 1 gram of fat

25 sprays (1 teaspoon) is 20 calories and 2 grams of fat

37.5 sprays is 30 calories and 3 grams of fat

The entire bottle contains 900 calories and 90 grams of fat!*

(Just thought this was good to know )

This is where I get confused. If one serving of something is 0, I don't understand why would more servings would just assume that itself is worth say.. 20 calories. lol.

Oddly enough, 0 calories doesn't have to mean 0 calories

According to the FDA:
When the caloric value for a serving of a food is less than 5 calories, can the actual caloric value be declared?

Answer: The caloric value of a product containing less than 5 calories may be expressed as zero or to the nearest 5 calorie increment (i.e., zero or 5 depending on the level). Foods with less than 5 calories meet the definition of “calorie free” and any differences are dietarily insignificant. 21 CFR 101.9(c)(1)

I love the stuff. It lets me enjoy "plain" baked potatoes and other foods without adding calories

Funny thing, I drank a bottle of diet Mountain Dew a few days ago and noticed that while 1 serving is 0 calories, a whole bottle (2.5 servings total) is 10 calories. I suppose the 10 calories are negligible in the soda example, but if you went crazy with the butter spray then you're probably no better than if you had used normal butter.

For example, I really love Brummel & Brown spread - it's made with yogurt and vegetable oil. It's 45 calories and 5 grams fat per tbsp, whereas a tablespoon of the spray you mentioned would be 60 calories plus 6 grams fat. Not to mention, taste wise I find the spray to be a little *too* artificial.

Also cooking veggies and stuff! It's amazing the boring veggies I can eat when they're sauteed in fake butter and garlic! YUM.

They all have 900-calories worth of oil in them. As long as the advertised amount of a serving is less than 5 calories, you can label it as 0. Read the ingredients before you eat!

I like that the spray butter is harder to access. As I've said before, I am a butter fiend. The spray format is like locking crack up in a puzzle box, to me. It's pretty hard to get at LOL.

I know I can't just scoop out a ton of it, I'd have to resort to taking the lid off.

I don't really use butter. My jacket potato is covered in cheese and beans. I don't add butter to sandwiches as I can't taste butter.

I just learned something new today. I have a spray can of butter that also says 0 calories; however I use it for when cooking my husband food. Less messy for me. However, I did not understand ow it was 0 calories, but then it's more calories as you use more.


However, I understand now and thanks for the great information.
