It's in the cereal you have for breakfast, in the pizza you have for lunch, in the soda you have for dinner. "It" is science, of course. Everything you eat is the result of a chemical process, either man-made or initiated by good old Mother Nature. In Food Science, you'll see where it's made, how it's made and what it does when it gets into your body. Award-winning chemist Dr. Joe Schwarcz guides viewers through the history, the culture and the science of the fuel of life. Viewers will gain a new respect for what is on the plate and will allow them to make smarter decisions in their daily diet.Food Science: KETCHUP For years people have thought of ketchup as a condiment packed with flavor, but light on nutrition. Oh, how wrong we were! Recent research has shown that heated tomato products are loaded with a form of molecule called lycopene that the body can easily absorb and which may fight cancer, heart disease and possibly even osteoporosis. This program tells you all about lycopene, the history of tomatoes and how ketchup is made.Grade Level: 3 - 6. 23 minutes.
