Foodies go crazy for caviar bumps, a dollop of caviar licked off your fist between thumb and forefinger like salt after a shot of tequila. You then crush the caviar against the top of your mouth with your tongue. It’s the latest craze for foodies and not just for the wealthy. Thanks to better breeding techniques, the price of caviar (not wild products) has fallen to a more affordable level. I don’t care what you call it, it’s still fish eggs.

Consuming too much high fructose corn syrup could lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This comes from a new study by researchers at the Endocrine Society. Although fructose is a natural sugar found in fruits and some vegetables, it is also an ingredient in high fructose corn syrup. This mixes it with cornstarch to create unhealthy products such as soft drinks and candies. According to previous studies, foods and beverages high in fructose may contribute to metabolic disorders like obesity and diabetes. These conditions are also two of the main causes of NAFLD.


You may want to switch from a sponge to a brush in the kitchen. Norwegian researchers claim that kitchen brushes are a much more hygienic way to clean your dishes. Their new study, published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology, indicates that dangerous bacteria like salmonella can spread from sponges to hands, surfaces and kitchen equipment, potentially making people sick. What surprised the researchers the most was that it didn’t matter how well people cleaned their sponges or how often. Overall bacteria levels were lower in brushes than in sponges.

Many of us eat chicken. In fact, I probably eat more chicken than any other meat. But according to new research, my ancestors would be horrified to learn that chickens are now food. A team from the University of Exeter has found that Iron Age Europeans actually worshiped the humble bird…almost like a deity rather than a delicacy. Men were buried with roosters when they died, while women were buried with hens. The legacy of the chicken is much more complicated than previously thought. “Eating chickens is so common that people think we have never eaten them. Our evidence shows that our past relationship with chickens was much more complex and that for centuries chickens were celebrated and revered,” says co-author Professor Naomi Sykes in an academic statement.The findings are based on chicken remains from more than 600 sites in 89 countries.
