Summary

Gives facts about food, from nutrition and diet, to food technology and processing.

Today's media is full of new discoveries about food - red wine is good for your heart, caffeine will raise your blood pressure - but is there a biological basis to these claims? Discover the facts behind your food, the benefits of superfoods and antioxidants, and explore behind-the-scenes of modern food production.

Delve into the science behind diets including gluten-free and veganism, as well as the benefits of different diets from around the world. Understand what actually makes food organic, how important sell-by dates really are, and how much salt you should actually be eating.
