    Canadians have been spreading reports of their store-bought butter being firmer than usual.

    Ross Lord explains what’s fuelling “buttergate” and how farmers aren’t laughing.

    An agri-food analyst at Dalhousie University is churning up questions about the hardness of Canadian butter. Sylvain Charlebois believes some farm practices are raising ethical questions about the purity of this country’s dairy products.

    Charlebois, the senior director of the agri-food analytics lab at the university, said butter smells and acts differently, and it seems harder than usual.

    1. Regarding butter quality
      I have been cooking for 60 + years. “Everything is better with butter”
      I love butter for many reasons.
      A couple of years ago I realized butter was different. I thought producers were trying to make butter and at the same time lower cost of production. The butter seems to have a higher water? content. It does take a longer time to melt. At this time, I still haven’t learned how much time it takes to soften or melt butter
      Why when Canadian butter has been an amazing food are the producers changing the way butter is made?
      I just want butter to be the product it used to be.
