What’s Really in Our Food?

3.8

Here’s a lively, valuable series that investigates the food we eat, exploring where it comes from and how it's made, demystifying the science, testing the ingredients and translating the labels. The program offers a guide on what to eat to improve physical and mental performance as well as what to avoid, from pesticides to superbugs and plastic residues.

Each episode takes an up close look at a food to address these questions: What is going to give us the most nutritional benefit? Is there a health risk? How much is too much? International food experts—leading medical professionals, scientists and nutritionists— unravel the processes involved in the production of our food. Presented by Petra Bagust and Carolyn Robinson in an entertaining style, this is essential viewing for anyone who eats.
