Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings....
The Difference Between Margarine And Butter
- Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

First of all, let me say here that we are not offering medical advice. The information here is simply our opinion, based on our own research and experience.
If you are wondering how it has been so easy for TPTB to have turned the overwhelming majority of American population into sheep who believe everything they are told and comply with outrageous demands and actions, it is partly because they have been replacing our good, healthy, natural foods with foods laced with poisons for decades.
Why would anyone take pleasure in adulterating the food supply? Try this theory – if TPTB can make the (Read More....)
Every day, more and more Americans are becoming aware of genetically modified organisms - GMOs - and the frightening reality of a mainstream food supply that is for many intents and purposes, poisonous. Due to this welcome new awareness, organic foods are growing in popularity faster than ever before. Recent data provides that the majority of Americans, when given the choice, will choose to avoid eating genetically modified foods, and are seeking out organic options more often as the rule, rather than the exception. The FDA, in spite of this information, does not require disclosure from food manufacturers when their products contain genetically modified content. This is disturbing indeed, but, there is a reliable way to more effectively avoid brands that are guilty of peddling GM goods. The way to do this is to seek out and purchase products that have been awarded the distinction of being Certified Organic by the USDA.
When shopping for food, look for items that are specifically labeled "USDA Certified Organic". According to the Organic Consumers Association, by taking this precaution, it's much safer to conclude that the food you're buying is free of GMOs because this is the only product label that is federally-regulated to prohibit the use of genetic engineering. Products that bear the seal are at least 95 percent organic, and no GMO ingredients (Read More....)
Different types of genetically modified foods are easily amiable in the market. Many people are under the opinion that consuming genetically modified foods is unsafe for humans and can cause a lot of hazards to the environment. Though a lot of studies have been carried out in this aspect, no conclusions have been reached about it. So there are no proper guidelines for selling such kinds of foods in the market. Genetically altered foods are those which are altered at the DNA level. They are modified using certain precise technology developed by the scientists. The modifications are usually done to make the foods easier to produce and market. Most of the common types of foods that are genetically modified are tomatoes, corn and soybeans to name a few. Such crops are also produced to make them pest resistant and yield more. However, there are many potential disadvantages related to the genetically modified foods. Read on to find out why avoid eating genetically modified foods.
1. Many criticisms have been leveled at the genetically modified foods. As consumers we must be aware of the possible side effects associated with (Read More....)
When are organic products not really organic? Well, when you buy them at the organic food store but it turns out that they were made in China. Yep, that's right. A major news investigation has revealed that many of the "organic foods" that you are buying at organic food stores are actually made in China. It turns out that Whole Foods (the largest organic food chain in the United States) is selling a large number of "organic foods" that are actually produced across the globe in China. Of course the notification that the product is made in China is in small lettering on the back of the package, so most consumers never have any idea that the organic product that they just purchased was grown half a world away.
In fact, if you are trying to eat organic, you might want to avoid anything made in India as well. It is now estimated that 75 percent of India's surface water is contaminated by human and agricultural waste. In (Read More....)
It would be impossible to recall genetically modified mosquitoes or fish, or bee's once they're released into nature. They have created glow in the dark cats, and fish, where the damage of playing with DNA once done, and cannot be reversed when natural reproduction occurs. Much of the foods we eat have been genetically modified to withstand herbicides and pesticides, creating new organisms that never existed before. The GVT, and corporations which are allowing this to happen are changing the makeup of our food, and more importantly changing our DNA. Food such as soy, corn and canola oil have been genetically modified.
These companies are going well beyond honest ethics and putting genes from bacteria and viruses, grasshoper DNA ect into crops. More so, much of the seeds they are creating have been manipulated. In some instances, the new Modified seeds cannot be used over each year. They have a suicide switch, where they are only good for one season. Most farmers save their seeds year to year, but many have been devistated after buying this GM Seeds. Now is the time to buy NON-GMO seeds, Heirloom seeds that have not been changed and fixed.
In Scientific studies lab rats refused to eat genetically (Read More....)
