Setting pulses racing: the Reading scientists perfecting broad bean bread
By making their nutritious bread taste like normal white loaves, scientists aim to help disadvantagedIt ’s creamy-white in colour with a deep brown crust. It has a mild floury taste but with a moreish salty tang. It crisps up nicely in a toaster, and it’s the perfect accompaniment to butter, jam or hummus.This is bread – but not as you know it. Scientists at the University of Reading are finding ways to make British diets far more nutritious and sustainable by stealth, replacing the soya flour, and some of the wheat, with broad beans – also known as faba or fava beans.Continue reading...

Telling Americans to ‘eat better’ doesn’t work. We must make healthier food | Mark Bittman
For decades public health authorities have encouraged us to choose healthier foods – yet most choices available to Americans are bad onesDiet-related chronic disease is the perennial number one killer in the United States, responsible for more deaths than Covid-19 even at the pandemic ’s peak. Yet we cannot manage to define this as a “crisis”. In fact, our response is lame: for decades we’ve been telling people to “eat better”, a strategy that hasn’t worked, and never will.It cannot, as long as the majority of calories we produce are unhealthy. It is the availability of and access to types of food that dete...

HRT: inside the complex global supply chain behind a $20bn market
As demand for menopause drugs soars, we trace the oestrogen production line from Chinese soya bean fields to European pharmacy shelvesIn the centre of the factory stand 31 reactors: giant metal globes that can hold up to 10,000 litres of liquid each. Every week, gleaming stainless steel drums arrive by truck at this plant on the outskirts of Oss, in the Netherlands. Their contents are poured into the reactors through a funnel, dissolved, and then heated to boiling point. Standing by one of the vast containers, the factory manager, Robert Dam, compares it to a “cooking pot”. Peering inside, we can see the light liquid b...

US farmers face plague of pests as global heating raises soil temperatures
Milder winters could threaten crop yields as plant-eating insects spread northwards and become more voracious, researchers sayAgricultural pests that devour key food crops are advancing northwards in the US and becoming more widespread as the climate hots up, new research warns.The corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea) is considered to be among the most common farm pests in the US, ravaging crops such as maize, cotton, soya and other vegetables. It spends winter underground and is not known to survive in states beyond a latitude of 40 degrees north (which runs from northern California through the midwest to New Jersey), but that ...
