From > standpoint ol sanitation margarine has taken over that stuff you used when margarine was fairly new. Margarine is primarily a blend of cotton seed, soybean and milk, and only dry milk ifl used. You know cows do have a way of eating dog fennel and wild onions In the spring and summer. The dry millc comes to the plant in sealed bags and is re-pasteurized here before using. A lot of people think margarine Is some what of a new product, but it Isn't. Back In the year 1868, when Napoleon, HI, was fighting the Franco-Prussian War, his Army was Hungry, as well as his people. He olfcred a prize to the individual who could produce a new type of food which was nutritious, economical and palatable and had good keeping qualities. The following year, Mige-Mou- ries, a French chemist, presented to Napoleon a new product which he called "margarln." The following year, he was awarded the prize by Napoleon for his contribution.

B later organized planters Bank, selling every dollar ol the stock htmselt and obtaining the charter. The bank was opened for business on Mny 15, 11)4.1, nnd to know that success story yon necri only to look over the hank report. Speaking of success stories we'll go to May 5. 184B, when B's college dream was at last realized. That was the opening day of Osceola Foods. Inc. Twenty personnel was hired to operate the margarine plant Just north of Osceola, which by the wny Is unexcelled by none in the business.

The product was pvtt Into production immediately all over the French Territory and within a year wns very popular, even in the Netherlands, which of course was a great butter producing territory. By 1872, it was produced along the Bnstern Coast ol the United Statci. prod duced chiefly by hand and in vciv .'ini' quantities. By IH'JO production of margarine ts earned out by spraying a winn emulsion, ol fat and sour (or cultured) milk on the surface of a large wooden vat of ice water. Ai the (at .struok the ice water It was crystallized into small globules thereby occulatlng a portion of ihe milk in the fat crystals. The crystals were then moved to a wcrklnn table where they were worked together and salt was worked into the product shipped !nt«rrt»»4. During the early ao's som« more developments were instituted resulting In greater control of the quality o( the finished ..product and a way to wrap the finished product. Alter World War I, hardened cotton seed oil became suitable for use in margarine. For several years blends ol nut oils, cottonseed oil, peanut oil and animal fats were made , into margarine. Soybean oil came In the early •30's. Margarine had now grown into a recognized industry. Newer and better methods for the production were continually introduced.
