Episode 4: Food Unwrapped

Summary

Kate Quilton heads to California to investigate alternative dairy products at one of California's leading producers of almond milk, before meeting a scientist who has been raising genetically engineered goats whose milk he hopes might one day save half a million lives every year. Jimmy Doherty teams up with a fish detective on a covert mission buying and testing fish in Edinburgh to make sure it is the real deal, while Matt Tebbutt finds out what goes into spreadable butter.

Review

Monday nights are already stuffed with foodie TV, but you may want to try to squeeze in another morsel with this investigative show. It’s a revisit of some of the team’s favourite overseas reports from previous series.

Jimmy Doherty takes a boozy trip to Mauritius to find out what the difference is between dark and white rum; Matt Tebbutt visits the beautiful Amalfi coast in Italy, home to the best anchovies, to find out why the tinned ones are so salty while fresh ones are not; And Kate Quilton goes to a colourful factory in California to discover exactly what goes into making a jelly bean.
