The WolfPack Media Group's curator insight, October 4, 2013 10:32 PM

Seems like an interesting course that can easily be applied to any novice or experienced Chef's skill set.


Here's a little food for thought. Food science is the applied science that's devoted to the study of food.


The Institute of Food Technologists defines food science as "the discipline in which the engineering, biological, and physical sciences are used to study the nature of foods, the causes of deterioration, the principles underlying food processing, and the improvement of foods for the consuming public"

Are we able to have a rational debate about GM?

Are we able to have a rational debate about GM? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

26 September 2013, The Guardian, Oliver Balch -- "GM food is incredibly controversial but to decide whether or not it has a place in sustainable agriculture, is a dose of perspective needed?

 

...One way to de-politicise the science is to boost public funding. Obviously, there's no such thing as 100% independent research: someone, somewhere has to fund it. Better that it's governments at arms length, than corporations up close. The United Nations-backedConsultative Group on International Agricultural Research, which runs 15 research centres around the world and employees 10,000 scientists and technicians, shows that such an approach is possible.

 

Greater public sector funding would also re-orientate the nature of biotech science, from one that's bound up ultimately by commercial obligations and constraints to one more centred on food security. At present, the business model of biotech firms means that they focus on "first-world, technologically-sophisticated, fairly well capitalised farmers", said David Cleary at The Nature Conservancy. That's understandably so. But what of the farmers who need varieties of drought-resistant cassava or pest-free sorghum in East Africa? "We don't see the benefits of biotechnology being directed to those farmers and that's a big issue", argued Cleary. ..."

27 September 2013, Triple Pundit, Bill DiBenedetto -- "Global food waste is not just about economics and economic security, it has huge impacts on the global carbon footprint.

 

Wasting 1.3 billion tons of food causes huge economic losses and a lot of needless hunger, but there are climate environmental issues deeply connected to food waste, according to a report from the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization.

 

FAO’s Food Wastage Footprint: Impacts on Natural Resources is the first study to analyze the impacts of global food wastage from an environmental perspective, looking specifically at its consequences for the climate, water and land use, and biodiversity. ..."

Almost everything about a school cafeteria meal has a regulation. The federal government caps the amount of fat and salt in breakfasts and lunches. It sets minimum standards for servings of fruit, vegetables, grains, milk and meat.

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's curator insight, June 26, 2013 10:40 PM

This article explains why we need to take responsibility for our own behaviours and get off the hamster wheel of negative patterns. It is not just a matter of willpower, but how we manage our lives in terms of healthy eating and lifestyle practices. When these things are attended to, our neurotransmitters will be in balance and we are more in control of our lives, mentally and emotionally, and our physical health is better. Then the healthy habits are easier to maintain. That is the philosophy at our Perth naturopathic clinic. See the website: www.cottnat.com.au

What do Sex, Food and Social Media Marketing Have in Common?

What do Sex, Food and Social Media Marketing Have in Common? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

I don’t care if you’re 18 or 80, when you have amazing sex or eat a good meal you want to tell people about it. I’m not talking about routine man and wife stuff or your weekly pilgrimage to Arby’s. I’m talking about the out of the out of the ordinary, crazy stuff, like when you’ve just finished something that involved $200 worth of sushi, 2 gallons of pistachio ice cream, whip cream and a blow torch... and that was the sex....

 

Not sure I agree with this article. What's new right?? LOL.

Hear me out, in my humble opinion I have nothing against sex, nor in brands using it to sell...however, I believe if we STOP using sex as a driving force to sell things then we'll have more satisfied clients.

 

Why you ask? Sex in advertising is fleeting and unrealistic. It's hot, here and now. There's so much sex being sold we've become imune to it. Give me brick and mortar. Features and Benefits. Sex is...

Global food prices fall to 3-year low, FAO trims crop forecasts

3 October 2013, Reuters -- "Global food prices are not expected to fall much further after dipping to their lowest level in three years in September, the United Nations food agency said on Thursday, trimming its estimate for 2013/14 world cereals production.

 

The decline in prices last month was driven by a sharp fall in the cost of grains, while dairy, meat and sugar prices all rose, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said.

 

Food prices surged during the summer of 2012 due to a major drought in the United States but prospects for a rebound in cereal supplies to record levels have reversed the price trend this year.

 

The FAO's index measuring monthly price changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy, meat and sugar, averaged 199.1 points in September, down about 1 percent from 201.4 points in August.

The index has fallen for five consecutive months and has reached its lowest level since September 2010. ..."
