Dr. Alejandro Marangoni, a professor in the Department of Food Science, appeared in a CBC Marketplace news item examining the so-called “buttergate” controversy in which some have alleged that butter has appeared harder and less spreadable in recent months.

Marangoni helped test 17 butter samples for the news program to analyze the butters’ palmitic acid content. The short news item appeared on CBC’s The National.

Marangoni researches new strategies for the replacement of trans and saturated fats in food products.
