Food Detectives

Hosted by Ted Allen

Dirty Bar Snacks

Everyone loves the bowls of peanuts, jars of pickles or even buckets of popcorn that sit out on the bar at the local watering hole. Nice gesture, but could munching on those treats make you sicker than the drinks you're paying for? We'll find out as Ted and the Food Techs conduct an experiment with bar snacks to see if they are unsanitary.

Then they put energy drinks to the test to see if they can really improve physical endurance. We'll also find out if a glass of wine can deter food poisoning and explore the science behind using liquid nitrogen in the kitchen.
