  • High Fructose Corn Syrup Linked to Kidney Stones: 5 Facts to Know

    High-fructose corn syrup, or HFCS for short, is a man-made sweetener commonly used in processed foods. It’s included in many foods that one would least suspect, like bread, crackers, pasta sauces, and even pickles. Groups like the Corn Refiner’s Association and companies dependent on High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) continue to market it as a safe, almost “natural” product. The truth is becoming increasingly clear, however, with studies showing the immense health issues that arise from its long-term consumption. Considering that the the majority of people today consume a diet primarily…
  • How to prevent organic food fraud

    A growing number of consumers are willing to pay a premium for fruits, vegetables and other foods labelled 'organic,' but whether they're getting what the label claims is another matter. Now scientists studying conventional and organic tomatoes are devising a new way to make sure farms are labeling their produce appropriately.

    What the heck is muesli? The term “muesli” (pronounced “MEWS-lee,” as in rhymes with “loosely”) is derived from the Swiss-German word “mus” — meaning, appropriately enough, “mixture.” The mixture consists of rolled oats, nuts, seeds, fresh or dried fruit and other whole grains, like rye or barley. Admittedly, this makes muesli sound an awful lot like granola. Although both foods can be good sources of whole grains, fiber, fatty acids and protein, granola is often toasted in oil and sweetened with honey or a syrup, making it much higher in fat and sugar.Muesli,…

    We are getting into the days when hearty casseroles and warm cheesy things are starting to sound like a good idea again. My absolute favorite time of year. Put this casserole on your list — it's a veggie-filled riff on baked mac 'n' cheese that doesn't require a roux or even much prep at all, beyond cooking the pasta. It hits that sweet spot of comfort food that has enough redeeming nutritional qualities to justify having it both for dinner and lunch the next day.This "lighter" baked macaroni and cheese casserole relies on a combination of cottage cheese, sour cream, and shredded cheese for…

Find out here what it is and why you should keep it in mind when shopping and eating.Glycemic index and glycemic load offer information about how foods affect blood sugar and insulin. The lower a food's glycemic index (or glycemic load), the less it affects blood sugar and insulin levels.The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and…

  • Live fast, die young: Soil microbes in a warmer world

    8 Sep 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The mortality of soil microbes in warmer temperatures may affect soil carbon storage, scientists say. Soil microbes consume organic carbon compounds in soil, use some of it to make more microbes and release the rest to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. The efficiency with which microbes use their food to make new microbes affects how much carbon remains in soil, and how much is released back to the atmosphere. The accepted idea before this study was that microbes would become less efficient at warmer temperatures.

However, researchers say that sunlight and not bacteria is the key to triggering the production of CO2 from material released by Arctic soils.

    Pine bark, botanical name Pinus pinaster, is a maritime pine native to southwest France, also growing in countries along the western Mediterranean. The many health-supportive properties of pine is found mainly in the outer bark. These compounds are often extracted from the bark in a way that doesn’t destroy or damage the tree. It is often used in aromatherapy and diluted in oil as a topical application. History The origin of the use of various tree barks for approaching health is thought to date back to 1535 when French explorer Jacques Cartier landed in what is now modern day Quebec,…

While folk medicine regards it as a natural approach for supporting the body against a wide range of issues, its ability to aid and soothe the urinary tract is more than folklore.

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:14 am
    Image source: Washington Post When I was interviewed for the Washington Post about In Search of the Perfect Loaf, I actually didn't have a recipe on hand that would work for the paper. Most of the recipes in the book are made with sourdough, the ingredients are measured by weight, and I explain them in detailed steps that run several pages in some instances. So what to do for a newspaper with limited space? I came up with this recipe, which still uses whole wheat, whole rye and white flour--classic components of the pain de campagne loaf. I also knew I wouldn't be able to use sourdough,…

    Researchers have found new adhesives based on mussel proteins could be useful for naval or medical applications. To create their new waterproof adhesives, researchers engineered bacteria to produce a hybrid material that incorporates naturally sticky mussel proteins as well as a bacterial protein found in biofilms -- slimy layers formed by bacteria growing on a surface. When combined, these proteins form even stronger underwater adhesives than those secreted by mussels.

At low resolution, the building and refinement of atomic models is a more challenging task. The deformable elastic network refinement method developed previously has been instrumental in the determination of several structures at low resolution. Now, DEN refinement has been reviewed.

Celery root can be shaggy, dirty, and mottled green. And sunchokes look like — well, like nothing else in the market. They’re knobby and woody on the outside, like bloated ginger root.

It refers to curing beef with “grains” of salt. We eat this dish every couple of months.

    When you start delving into the world of health, one thing becomes very apparent. There are a ton of labels. Usually described as a way to eat or what to avoid, some of the most popular ones are vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, paleo, raw, and pescatarian. Needless to say, there is a lot to figure out, and many people treat these labels as if they were absolute, with no room for flexibility.
