Thank you for using JustAnswer. I will be glad to assist you.

Yes, it is safe to use Flora margarine in reasonable quantities.

Like all margarines, the Flora is predominantly a fat, and so like all fats, should be limited in quantity. However, for what little fat should be used in the diet, it is safe to use the Flora margarine.

There also has been an attempt to use "healthier" fats in the formulation of Flora compared to other margarines, and while this is true, it still does not change that it is still predominantly a fat.

So, yes, it is safe in reasonable quantities.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.
