Nuts about food tech

7th January 2005 at 00:00
Peanuts, proteins and poverty are brought together in an interesting pack for key stage 4 food technology. In a Nutshell examines the production, processing and consumption of this popular snack. A poster and thoughtful work cards cover a broad range of topics - the different types of fat and their links to obesity; the uses of groundnut oil; the nature and risks of food allergies. Other cards deal with such issues as the difficulties of small-scale producers in Zimbabwe and the "eco-footprint" of peanuts in a globalised economy. In a Nutshell costs pound;9.95 from ITDG Publishing.
