Butter Churns Out Highest Consumption Rate in Decades

Spread on toast, used in baking, slathered on our favorite vegetables—butter has been a staple in American homes for centuries.

Surprisingly, according to the American Butter Institute, per-capita butter consumption rose even higher in the past year, up 5.6 pounds.

Butter consumption has grown 25% in the past 10 years, reaching a 40-year high in 2012. Why is butter gaining ground and hitting kitchen tables faster? Experts say it’s due to the all-natural quality of butter, which can have benefits that shine it in a better light than its competitors.
