Margarine Woes. Did You Know…

Margarine Woes | An interesting Food Facts Tip
As our subscribers know, Food Facts.Com does not endorse food products. But we just had to share this with our blog’s readers.

You can try this yourself. Buy a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or in a shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things. There will be no flies, and not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it. That will tell you something. Meanwhile, it does not rot or smell differently. Why? Because it has no nutritional value, and nothing will grow on it, and even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. You’re probably wondering: Why? Well, that’s because it is nearly plastic.

Food for thought. Let’s face it. Would you melt your tupperware and spread that on your toast?
