"The Margarine-Butter Wars
By 1943, Iowa State College-- now Iowa State University -- had attracted a bevy of economists dedicated to researching hard subjects and then translating what they'd learned into policy suggestions. O. H. Brownlee, a graduate student at the college, suggested in one of his policy pamphlets that Americans should eat more margarine as part of the war effort, in light of a dairy shortage among service personnel. In a pre-I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter moment, he also asserted that margarine was comparable to butter in taste and nutrition.
Iowa’s dairy industrial complex, which lobbied against margarine right down to its color, challenged the recommendation and urged Iowa State to get rid of the some of the people involved. The butter lobby also waged its war against margarine, Iowa State, and Brownlee through the press, calling the graduate student “unstable” and insulting economists in general as less-than-real scientists."

Tenure has its pros and cons.

Margarine wars shows just how much food etc is just a political football even at the academic level. Too much "opinion" and not enough " fact."

I kicked margarine to the curb in the mid 1990's. Now need to move to grassfed butter instead of grain fed butter.

Butter was one thing my parents never gave up and neither did I. Thank goodness!

My mother once told me that when they first started selling margarine, they also sold a little bottle of yellow colorant to make it look more like butter.

I was raised with margarine. When I first tasted butter, I never wanted to go back to margarine again.
