Food Detectives - S01 E01


In the first episode, Alice Roberts reveals that many of us are taking home a food poisoning bug from the supermarket. Campylobacter is the most common cause of food poisoning in the UK. It has been found on fresh chilled chickens bought from all the major supermarkets. The food industry has promised to reduce the levels of contamination but has it? Tom is on a mission to improve our cooking skills one dish at a time. This time he's in Poole to help a viewer who just can't seem to cook fish without ruining it. Supermarkets offer a range of own brand products at different prices - when is it worth spending more on premium and when is a money-saving basic just as good? With the help of food scientists, Sean Fletcher is pulling apart the ingredients in some everyday foods to find out - this time it's pasta.
