'Food facts' is not just another cooking show, it is instead a quest for answers to questions about food that we all wonder. Is there really such a thing as healthy sugar? Are vegetarian meat substitutes actually healthier? Are smoothies as healthy as they look?

Furthermore, this programme looks at the preconceptions we have about food and investigates to what extent these are correct.

The recurring item “The journey of …” shows a process from ingredient to final product … but in reverse. “From candy to pig” went viral online and received over 12 million views.

These items are available as ready mades.
