Fun Food Facts

1. Lemons contain more sugar than strawberries

2. The onion is named after a Latin word meaning large pearl

3. Half of the world's population live on a staple diet of rice

4. "Fast Food" Isn't New!

The remains of fast-food shops have been found in ancient ruins! Even ancient Greeks enjoyed take-out. The only thing that is new is the mass production, standard menus and recipes of fast-food "chains." Wow!

5. Potato crisps were invented by a North American Indian called George Crum

6. During a lifetime the average person eats about 35 tonnes of food

Ice Cream Is Chinese Food!
When the famous explorer Marco Polo returned to his homeland of Italy, from
China in 1295, he brought back a recipe (among other things). The recipe, was a
Chinese recipe for a desert called "Milk Ice." However, Europeans substituted
cream for the milk, and voila..."Ice Cream." Ice cream has been a hit ever since!

8. Carrots Really Can Help You See In The Dark!

Vitamin A is known to prevent "night blindness," and carrots are loaded with
Vitamin A. So, why not load-up today!

9. The Word "Salary" Comes From "Salt!"

Salt, our oldest preservative, was extremely rare in the past. So rare, in fact, that it
was often used as pay. Imagine...earning a couple of tablespoons of salt for a
hard-days work. Today, salt is so common that restaurants give it away for free,
and packaged food contains so much that it's far too easy to eat too much salt (salt
is also known as "sodium").

10. Sometimes Frozen Fruits And Vegetables Are More Nutritious Than Fresh!

The longer that fruits or vegetables sit around waiting to be sold or eaten, the more nutrients they lose. But fruits and vegetables grown for freezing are usually frozen right after they're picked. Therefore, they have less time to lose their nutrients.
