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: BREAD
