Food explores some of the scientific principles involved in the production, preparation, and preservation of food. Discover why food is a form of stored solar energy and how everything you eat can really be traced back to the sun. Learn how cooking food involves some rather complex chemical reactions and how even something as simple as making ice cream depends on the laws of physics. Hands-on activities help bring the science of food to life, with topics ranging from why food tastes the way it does to how acids and bases produce chemical changes in food as you make cheese and marinate meat.
