Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton and Matt Tebbutt uncover more unusual, intriguing and surprising secrets behind the food we eat.
In this episode Kate investigates alternative milks, at one of California’s leading producers of almond milk, she finds out how many almonds make it into each bottle; before meeting a scientist who’s been raising genetically engineered goats whose milk he hopes might one day save half a million lives every year.
Jimmy investigates reports that some of the fish we buy may not be what we think. At a remarkable bunker in Oxfordshire, he joins a team of agents who monitor every vessel in the world’s oceans and detect any signs of suspicious behaviour. Then Jimmy hooks up with a fish detective in Edinburgh, on a covert mission buying and testing fish to make sure it’s the real deal.
And what exactly is spreadable butter? Is it butter or margarine? An extraordinary award-winning butter sculptor helps Matt find out.
