Butter’s redemption is almost complete. Unilever, the global king of margarines, has announced its surrender in the face of plummeting sales. It is now adding real butter to its best selling spread in Germany. Company chiefs have admitted “the battle is over” as butter sales soar and more people return to real food not processed mush. It is a significant step as Wirral-founded Unilever gleefully joined the anti-butter bandwagon, proclaiming it a dinner table kind of Grim Reaper. Bad science, bad advice from governments and the vested interests of Big Food backed by the media led to this unpalatable situation. But the wheel is turning. Progressive Sweden is the first Western country to turn its back on the low calore/high carb and anti-saturated fats advice that has plagued us for three decades and actually caused the obseity explosion. The UK and USA will eventually coming around too – it will take time because many so-called experts are going to look like complete chumps. Butter sales in the US have hit a 44 year high while marge is down to it worst level for 70 years.
