Love Food Love Science

The Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) has recently developed the ‘Love Food Love Science’ campaign which aims to show you all of the science that is hidden behind the food that we eat on a daily basis.



You can find out:

  • Why rice crispies snap, crackle and pop
  • Whether carrots can actually help you to see in the dark
  • Why chopping onions makes you cry

There are also quizzes and experiments that you can try out at home if you want to see if you have what it takes to be a food scientist. You could find out about the processes involved in making ice cream or whether you are a supertaster to name just a couple!

If you are interested in food then check out Love Food Love Science and see just where your science skills can take you. You can also ‘like’ Love Food Love Science on Facebook here.
