7 yummy facts every foodie must know
We eat food, we love food, we can't (literally) live without food. Anyway, there are some things about our favorite products even the most passionate foodies are still unaware of. Read on to find out about some of them.
#1 Strawberries don’t exist!
At least, not in the wild. The version of strawberry that is popular in the modern world was actually an agricultural invention of 18th-century France. Wild strawberries are very different from our favorites.
#2 All olives are the same
Despite how they’re sold, both black and green olives are actually the same fruit. Black olives are the ripe version of the green ones and both need to be cured before they become edible.
#3 Chicken wings weren’t always on the menu
In fact, before the 60s, chicken wings were discarded and considered undesirable. Buffalo wings made sure to change that sacrilegious impression.
#4 All avocados are one!
Almost all avocados in the US can be traced back to a single tree planted by postman Rudolf Hass.
#5 Steaks don’t bleed
Despite what it may look, no matter how rare you order your steak, it doesn’t actually bleed. All of the blood has been drained from the meat long before. What you’re seeing is water and a red protein called myoglobin.
#6 Ice cream will warm you up!
Despite its refreshing qualities, ice cream actually triggers a slight increase in your body’s temperature. This is because your body will elevate its temperature slightly while processing the fat content of this treat.
#7 Coffee doesn't taste as good as it smells because of our saliva
The smell of coffee can inspire and excite. But the taste is often not so good. This is because your saliva actually breaks down half of the about 600 chemicals involved in coffee’s heavenly smell.
