Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC
Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC…
This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).
You can try this yourself:
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area.
Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things:
* No flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)
* It does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value
* Nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weenie microorganisms will not a find a home to grow
Because it is nearly plastic.
* Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
For fun, let's try to think of non-food ways to use margarine. For instance would the melted version work well for squeaky door hinges? Or maybe if you mix the soft tub version with course oatmeal it might make a good artificial vomit for those occasions when such a thing is needed. Might still have to add some mushroom soup though.
