BBC Two: The Secrets of Your Food
New series. Michael Mosley and James Wong reveal the physics, chemistry and biology hidden inside various foods.

Michael and James also unravel why sourdough bread is so beneficial, how the rice has become a comforting staple food, and why allowing mushrooms to `sunbathe' may help provide a welcome calcium boost.
