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: PIZZA

This program explores the combination of ingredients on your pizza, the evolution of this delicious food, and the technology involved in creating one of its most common ingredients: cheese.Grade Level: 3-6. 23 minutes.
