Norway risks running out of the ingredient most frequently used by families for the preparation of typical dishes Christmas sweets Scandinavians: the XNUMX/XNUMX cup salted butter. Norwegians quickly expressed their despair at the impossibility of finding the necessary quantity to satisfy their gluttony during the holidays, reaching peaks of despair that bordering on absurdity.



It seems that the reasons for the shortage of butter that Norway is facing are many. What arouses the concern of the Norwegians is above all the decrease in milk production, due to an excessively rainy summer season, which did not allow the farmers to have quality forage available to feed the cows.

It also seems that the Norwegians in recent times are even more accustomed to a 'high-calorie diet and rich in animal fats, in which butter plays a fundamental role. The simplest solution would be to import the ingredient from Denmark, one of the major trade ports for dairy products, but this would entail high customs duties, as Norway is located outside the European Community.

The price of the remaining butter stocks is quickly skyrocketed, so much so that buying a 500 gram block touched the exorbitant cost of 350 € in the course of an online sale, a truly unthinkable figure even for the inhabitants of the European nation with the Higher per capita GDP. Butter is sold by its weight in gold and it seems that the Norwegians are still ready to go crazy to buy it.

There are those who have thought of asking for help abroad through Social Networks, with a bizarre request addressed to the people of the Web, for someone to intervene to save the Norwegians from a future as a vegan. In our opinion, it is precisely from vegans that Scandinavians should take inspiration for being able to prepare their beloved Christmas sweets in any case without using the coveted milk products.

One of the possible solutions could be to contact one of the vegetable alternatives to butter. In fact, for the preparation of desserts it can be replaced, for example, by rice oil or from sunflower oil cold pressed as well as from vegetable margarine (preferably free of hydrogenated fats) or from edible cocoa butter.
