Food Unwrapped - S08 E04


Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton and Matt Tebbutt uncover more unusual, intriguing and surprising secrets behind the food we eat. Jimmy takes to the skies above Israel, as he joins the battle to protect the bell pepper crop from its fiercest predator, the Mediterranean fruit fly. But this is biological warfare with a difference, and Jimmy's amazed to learn that it isn't insecticide that he's helping to spread across the desert. Kate investigates premium-priced manuka honey, which is marketed for its anti-bacterial properties. But with every jar appearing to use a different labelling system, how can consumers tell how much manuka is in their honey? And Matt asks how much of a leek we should be eating. He visits the UK's largest leek producer, where he's shocked by how much perfectly good leek goes to waste, and amazed by a mobile factory on wheels that can process 60,000 leeks a day.
