    The price of Rat meat goes up in Thailand I rarely copy a news story but a story about eating rats I can't pass up. This story from PDN about the price of rat meat in Phitsanulok. Before you think that's it's only poor farmers eating rats, the cost of rat meat is double that of chicken and pork. This lady says it costs 250 baht a kilogram for a big rodent, not that i'm noting to buy a whole kilo of it! Still I've eaten rat meat and although I prefer fried frog, fried rat isn't too bad...

    Supermarket Coop makes leap after law change allows sale of grasshoppers, crickets and mealworms for human consumption Switzerland’s second-largest supermarket chain will begin selling insect burgers for human consumption after the country’s food safety laws were revised. Coop said insect-based produce such as the flour burgers and balls of protein-rich mealworm would go on sale next week. The products, made by a Swiss start-up called Essento, will be available in a handful of Coop branches, including in Geneva, Bern and Zurich, from 21 August, according to a statement.

    DALLAS (AP) - Drew Demler is digging in a box of dirt in the middle of Fair Park. The Dallas Morning News reports he is harvesting potatoes - big, small, misshapen, one that even looks like a snowman - in a hotter-than-deep-fried parking lot just outside the Cotton Bowl. "I think potatoes and onions are two of the most important crops that we grow," Demler, farm manager at Big Tex Urban Farms , says as he uses his bare hands to search for the tubers. "They're hearty and prolific, and their storage life is long."(continued)

    It’s already the meal you turn to when you’re looking to expend as little effort as possible, and now pizza chains across the U.S. — and the U.K. — are looking to simplify the process to purchase a pie. The latest innovation comes from Little Caesars, which on Monday introduced its new Reserve-N-Ready service. The key to the service is a device known as the Pizza Portal, which is being heralded as the first heated, self-service mobile order pickup station in the fast-food industry. So what does this mean for you? In essence, you can now get your pizza without...

  • How much does it cost to stock the typical family refrigerator?

    The Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | August 6, 2017 | Jodi O'Connell, GoBankingRates.com
    Refrigerators were originally used to store just a few perishable essentials such as meat and milk. In fact, the first electric units of the 1920s were only slightly bigger than modern mini-fridges. Nearly 100 years later, refrigerators are bigger than ever and used to store the bulk of the food consumed by a household. Americans spend anywhere from $130 to just under $300 a week stocking up on food for a family of four, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But those numbers include dry goods that wouldn't be kept in the refrigerator and leave out fridge such staples...

    There was an article in the Summer 2017 issue of "Good Medicine" that suggested removing SNAP ("food stamp" replacement) program eligibility for sweetened beverages, desserts, red meat, cheese, salty snacks, candy and sugar for health reasons. I support such SNAP eligibility removals, except for red meat or cheese. I'm not so sure that red meat or cheese should be removed from SNAP eligibility since so much of American agricultural land is only suitable for raising red meat/dairy product animals. That issue in "Good Medicine" also reported on the MIND diet to reduce Alzheimer's risk. The MIND diet was also reported...

    When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans there was a brief moment of shocked compassion before racial anxieties flooded the Internet. Victims of the disaster were quickly recast as looters, criminals, and layabouts. They were government “dependents” seeking even more entitlements now that they were bona fide survivors. Some of these hideous opinions drew on the physical “evidence” of the bad character of hurricane survivors: their size. The mostly black bodies crowding the Superdome, getting on rafts, and being carried away by helicopters, were too large for online critics. Obesity, while common in the US and over-represented in the South, was...

    The Electric Bioreactor Farm Finnish researchers have created a batch of single-cell protein that is nutritious enough to serve for dinner using a system powered by renewable energy. The entire process requires only electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes. The synthetic food was created as part of the Food From Electricity project, which is a collaboration between Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. After exposing the raw materials to electrolysis in a bioreactor, the process forms a powder that consists of more than 50 percent protein and 25 percent carbohydrates — the texture...

    As President of the United States, Donald Trump has an army of five personal chefs, ready and waiting to slave away in the kitchen to cater to his every dietary need. Instead, the POTUS’ favourite foods have been revealed – and it hasn’t left experts impressed. According to the Chicago Tribune, Trump eats “like a teenage boy”, indulging in fast food – he celebrated with a Big Mac and fries after he won the Republican presidential nomination - and knocking back cans of Diet Coke. By all accounts, he’s not a huge fan of breakfast, but if he does eat...

    A Cabinet split over whether to allow the import of controversial “chlorine washed” chicken could cause a major stumbling block in Liam Fox’s trade talks with the US today. It is more than one-fifth cheaper than British chicken, and has been deemed safe by the European Food Safety Authority, despite the EU ban.
