Ever wondered why some foods taste so good? Or why it’s safe to eat bacteria in cheese and yoghurt but not bacteria in meat? Thinking beyond the everyday, with the world’s population growing, how can we feed everyone in more sustainable ways? And how can we tackle problems like over and undernutrition, major causes of illness around the world?
In this zone there’ll be a varied menu of scientists involved with food. There could be researchers working with the public to investigate the effect different food has on our body, and others looking at how we can make food more nutritious. Other people could be working with governments to change how we produce food to be better for the planet.
