Food Science Babe

Food Science Babe is the pseudonym of an agvocate and writer who focuses specifically on the science behind our food. She has a degree in chemical engineering and has worked in the food industry for more than decade, both in the conventional and in the natural/organic sectors. There are so many myths surrounding the food we eat — what’s in it, how it’s produced, what’s good for us/bad for us — that I present information based on scientific facts and encourage people to ask questions. Food Science Babe can be found on Facebook.
