Napoleon III

A new recipe was created in response to a competitive challenge from the French govern by order of Napoleon III. Who was looking for a cheap and stable substitute for butter to feed the military troops and lower class of French population. Napoleon offered a big prize to anyone who could pull it off.

Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès

In 1869 Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès, during the Franco-Prussian wars improved margerine. Won the prize from Napoleon III for best improved recipe for margarine.

The original formulation of margarine was made with beef fat. Today most margarine is produced with vegetable oil.

FALSE… Not even slightly true. Even though it had been rumored for many centuries that the contest margarine from the other contestants was fed to the turkeys and they died. People had said Napoleon was “Testing the Product” to make sure no one was making something to poison the troops and the people of France. Not one turkey was killed by margarine.
