Science: Cheese tastes stronger when injected with hip-hop

Expectant mothers often put headphones on their bellies for their babies to listen to as they develop, but it’s a little less common to see cheesemakers doing the same with their wheels of Brie and Camembert.

Though […]

Food safety: Researchers seek kill-step to rid flour of pathogens

When you think of foods that present high food safety risks, flour isn’t generally top of the list. Flour’s dryness makes it less conducive to bacterial growth, and because it’s usually baked at a pathogen-killing temperature, it’s not very likely to cause foodborne illness once eaten.
