Why does food spoil? And how do we keep it from going bad? Other than sticking it in the fridge or freezer that is!

Imma Perfetto is a science journalist at Cosmos Magazine and in this episode of the podcast Huh? Science Explained she’s sampling all the tasty science behind how we preserve food – from dehydration, to fermentation, and pasteurisation – and why some foods like honey can stay edible indefinitely.

Huh? Science Explained is a LiSTNR production.
