If “we are what we eat,” then we are all consumers of food science — even if we may not be aware of it. With a pinch of history and a dash of myth busting, Food Preservation: The Science You Eat highlights the role science plays in delaying food decay and keeping food nutritious and safe from farm to fork. In this interactive museum experience, explore the fascinating world of food preservation both at home and in larger scale operations. Learn the scientific reason why long-used methods of food preservation continue today and discover new innovations that will affect our food choices into the future. You’ll find something to feed your mind and imagination on the menu! Presented by Nestlé Canada. Supported by the Government of Canada.
