What is Buttergate?

Buttergate is the term given to the controversy involving the change in the texture of butter in Canada and its inability to soften at the room temperature. It emerged as a point of concern after several social media posts in Canada pointed out that this hardness is not limited to any particular time of the year, butter brand or price range.

The cause for this change is unknown. However, many are speculating that it may possibly be due to the targeted change in feeding and farming practices, which changed the fatty acid profile of the bovine milk.
