A) Coming to be regarded as a miracle food in the 1980s, it was a staple of the Mediterranean diet even in antiquity; the olive oil consumed in the United States(modifier error, in 2nd clause the olive didn't increase rather the consumption of olive oil increased)
B) Being a staple of the Mediterranean diet since antiquity and having been regarded as a miracle food since the 1980s, the olive oil consumed in the United States( in the 2nd clause,meaning changes, the olive oil didn't increase rather the consumption increased)
C) Having been a staple of the Mediterranean diet since antiquity and coming to be regarded as a miracle food in the 1980s, the olive oil consumption of the United States(having been is incorrect)
D) A staple of the Mediterranean diet since antiquity, olive oil came to be regarded as a miracle food in the 1980s; the olive oil consumption of the United States has( correct)
E) Being regarded as a miracle food since the 1980s and a staple of the Mediterranean diet even in antiquity; the amount of olive oil consumed in the United States has( being regarded modifies the amount)

Will go with choice D.

Thanks

Why is no one tackling the "in the US" and "of the US" split? IMO "in" would infer that it is the oil consumption within the US. However, "of" the US, would infer that it is the US that does the consumption.
