French chemist Hippolyte Mege - Mouries, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica, was granted the U.S. patent for margarine in 1873. It didn't take long for the product to become embroiled in a controversy which ranged for decades. The early margarine makers mostly used animal fats. Whale oil was quite popular in Europe. The new product was called oleo, a word related to oil. The name alone could have been considered a major handicap for any food item. But from Mege-Mouries' idea grew the process of churning the margarine with milk, kneading it to a plastic consistency and packaging it — all by the means of equipment designed to make butter! Primarily as a result of efforts of competitive industries, margarine soon became subject to severe restrictive legislation, both federal and state. High taxes were imposed, particularly, on yellow margarine. The margarine foes found a powerful weapon that served them for years. Since most of the early margarine was made from imported oils, this situa tion was used to gain support for the restrictions, on the grounds that the foreign oil im ports were inimical to the American farmer. Then an im portant processing occurred. In the 1930s, after considerable research, manufacturers discovered a method of making margarine from vegetable oils produced domestically. As a result, American cottonseed and Soybean growers took an immediate interest in removing the restrictions. They were joined in the 1940s by consumer groups, which objected to the high margarine prices. At that time only uncolored margarine was sold in most areas. Having the appearance of lard, it was a most unappetizing item on a dinner table. If a housewife, wanted it colored yellow she had to do it herself, and it was a tedious, messy task. To this situation the antimar garine forces answered, in effect, "There are many excellent colors the margarine makers can use, including red, blue, purple and green, so why should they want yellow? Obviously, they're just trying to imitate butter." But Congress in 1950 repealed all the federal taxes and license fees on margarine made in the United States. State legislatures followed this lead and soon the bans against yellow margarine were lifted. Thus, the consumers were at last giv ; en a choice — and many now choose both.
