Wall Street Journal’s Kelsey Gee reports that BUTTER per-capita demand on the rise, total national production back to levels not seen since World War II, and margarine safely relegated to the country’s second favorite spread. Average American each year is consuming 5.6 lb of Butter a day. Still 1/3rd of what people were eating in 1930. Remember those days butter was the major source of energy compare to today we get energy from many other sources.
Butter isn’t the only thing that is both back, Coffee culture seems ever-present today, but in fact Americans today drink less than half the 48 gallons per person they did in 1948.
In 1975, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture numbers, Americans consumed 425 million pounds of yogurt; by early 2012 that had risen to 4.4 billion pounds. Cheese consumption in the same period went from just over 19 pounds per person to nearly 36 pounds. And all of this is happening while milk consumption continues its long-term decline.
