The survey says, “Americans’ consumption of butter has hit a 40-year high, according to an organization known as the American Butter Institute (ABI), a 106-year-old organization that lobbies on behalf of 90 percent of the country’s butter producers. In 2012, per capita consumption reached 5.6 pounds, up a whole pound and a half from just 15 years earlier in 1997, according to ABI.”
Dare I say it – the answer is obvious – “butter’s increased popularity is likely linked to recent shift away from foods containing trans fats, of which butter’s main competitor margarine contains a lot.”
I don’t know if that is great grammar, but it makes a great point.
Vegans in my family will hold judgement – they don’t eat butter either. Or any dairy. Or honey.
