According to research in the British Food Journal... U-S consumers have better fat content awareness than our French and Canadian counterparts, but we eat more of it. A study of more than 300 consumers revealed that Americans appear to be more knowledgeable about dietary fats and nutritional recommendations on fats compared with those in other countries. So given the high obesity rates in the U.S., researchers say providing nutritional information may not be as effective as previously thought in promoting healthy eating habits for Americans.

Industry News
In other news, the best new U.S. chefs are coming from some unexpected places....
Food & Wine Magazine released its list of the top new chefs in the country, and surprisingly many are not from the foodie capitals of New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Several chefs, including Erik Anderson and Josh Habiger from Nashville, Tenn., and Blaine Wetzel from Lummi Island, Wash., are proving that serving up platefuls of mouthwatering cuisine isn't dependent on a market's population.

Culinary Tip
Here with our Bunge Fast and Profitable Culinary Tip is chef Adam Moore... showing us how to make a tasty treat to enjoy with French fries.

Commodity News
Hamburg-based researcher Oil World predicts world processing of 10 oilseeds may slow from April to September on tightening supplies as adverse weather in South America may damage crops. Oil World said it might cut its soybean-crushing estimate of 114.1 million metric tons for the period.
Soybean futures jumped to a six-month high of $14.16 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade on March 30, after the U.S. Department of Agriculture said farmers may plant fewer acres than last year.

Commodity Report
Now let's head to St. Louis for the latest commodity report update.....

Margarine Wars
In 2011, Bunge became the 3rd largest margarine manufacturer in North America offering a full-line of margarine spreads, European butter-blends in various packaging formats for foodservice, food processors and retail customers.

So it makes perfect sense that Bunge products would be the star of a just-released movie about margarine....Bunge MOE, and its team of Mobile Oil Experts parked right outside the red carpet premiere of the movie Margarine Wars, last week, to serve up Hollywood some street food treats... of course all made with Bunge Margarine.
The movie, set in butter-rich Wisconsin, is a hilarious tale of an illegal margarine smuggling operation that is based on some real laws that used to be on the books. Let's go to our Bunge Team in Hollywood for more.
