Summary
Food has taken on so many meanings over the ages that we often forget what it really is: a source of chemical energy. This program takes a scientific look at food, showing how people and animals capture nutrients while revealing some disturbing eating habits with hidden benefits. After a look at the importance of fire and yeast in early culinary history, viewers experience "molecular gastronomy" at a Chicago restaurant where lasers, centrifuges, and liquid nitrogen are as common as spatulas. The program then examines the nutraceutical benefits of the blue mussel, the digestive efficiency of the carrion-loving turkey vulture, and the possibility that food could one day be genetically tailored to individual taste
