Colours of Food

Thanks to Nautilus Independent

When it comes to food, colours is money. Food companies scan their products on the line with custom colourimeters to ensure mathematically consistent hues. Fruits and vegetables are shipped in chemically “modified” atmospheres, because “better stem and fruit colours gives better prices,” according to the website of the delivery company TransFresh. Colours is judged by a legion of standards all along the food chain. The hue of orange juice, for example, is carefully calibrated by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Orange Juice Colours Standards

15 Foods that last longer than you think

Thanks To Linda Loosli from foodstoragemoms.com

15 Foods That Last Forever

1. Honey

If you can buy raw honey, it will last forever. Please remember that storing honey in 5-gallon buckets is not the best idea. You may have to chisel the honey to use after a few years. It will crystalize, which is fine if it’s stored in quart mason jars. You can set your jars outside in the heat of the summer and it will eventually go back to its liquid state. If you microwave the jars you will lose some critical nutrients in the honey.

2. Sugar

Sugar is very inexpensive and it will store indefinitely if it does not get moisture in it. If you find a bucket of sugar that is rock hard, it has gotten moisture in it. Please keep it dry and stored in a cool place...

Does Vitamin water work?

Water used to come in just one flavor: plain.

But it wasn’t long before entrepreneurs saw an opportunity for H2O 2.0. If plain water is good for you, then water enhanced with vitamins, minerals and electrolytes must be even healthier — right?

Not quite. “Most of the claims are marketing ploys to sell water at a higher price,” says Bonnie Liebman, director of nutrition at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer advocacy group. “They are not about scientific evidence, and not about the public’s health.”

But that hasn’t stopped people from buying it. Sales of bottled water in the U.S. increased more than 6% to $15 billion in 2015.
