I use that Smart Balance stuff, it's a blend of soy, canola and olive oils. You can bake with it, I've made a ton of stuff with it and it cooks up just like butter and has 80 calories per tbsp. It's supposed to have a bunch of Omega 6 and Omega 3 oils which help lower cholesterol. I'm not sure if it's just a marketing ploy but so far I haven't died so I'm guessing it's ok. I just can't force myself to cook with pure butter or use it as a spread. I use canola and olive oils routinely to saute in and use this Smart Balance stuff to bake with and for a spread.
