5 Food Myths BUSTED? | FridgeCam



welcome to fridge cap you eat food this is the show for you in the fridge today does cheese give you nightmares we undertake a scientifically controlled experiment to find out and fail cook such a recipe with these ingredients actually finding out but first we put some of the oldest food myths to the test myth 1 microwaving food is unhealthy plan out a great experiment to test this theory got two bowls of kale a microwave some boiling water and this is a refractometer we're going to boil some kale in both a microwave and a pan of boiling water we're going to see if the microwave kale still has the same amount of density as the boiled and therefore whether it kills the nutrients in it or not this is the boiled in a pan kale is that scale going up now that was just you dropping green liquid onto it let's just dip it straight into Athens take your finger they go what's happening it's 6% 6% bricks have a look at that processor 1 bricks that's 1% bricks so the water that was coming out of the kale from the microwave yeah has lost more nuke has lost less nutrients the one that we boiled is this a bit weak over the Jamie really the guy at the science fair science fair please cuz we're struggling a microwave emits radiation now that sounds big and scary but actually the radiation that emits is about a thousand times weaker than anything that could do any harm that radiation moves energy when that energy moves the molecules in the food around now those molecules when they move great heat and the heat is what heats up the food because the microwave is only moving the molecules around it's not destroying the nutrients any more than boiling them would in fact because it cooks quicker in a microwave you could say it destroys fewer nutrients myth 2 keeping a silver spoon in an open bottle of champagne will keep the fizz in for longer is what we've done two bottles of champagne exactly the same opened exactly the same time last night one had a silver spoon put in it both put into the fridge at the same time both taken out of the fridge at the same time and here they are we're going to test are they equally as fitting exactly we're going to do that by pouring both in two separate glasses we're going to count accurately the number of bubbles that we can see and then we're going to taste them and see what we think that's fairly even bubble each year very public will be toasting to the abolition of ridiculous myths Oh Oh all right up oh that's inside then yet round top content dear friends I don't know if there is a difference the hell do you think your pruner they've been lots of tests on this some more formula going this one and they've all failed the fact is the bubbles get into the liquid via pressurization once the cork has been popped the bubbles gonna get out no matter what carbon dioxide is most soluble in cold liquids to keep in the fridge for as long as possible and the bottles should remain there for a while until escape then you're screwed myth number three do carrots help you see in the dark this one is pulling most scientific so far and three hours ago we put Jamie through an eye test in the dark it's not quite pitch black no but I can still see things you can see me yeah yeah right here your card II P T M and s after counting his school we then got Jamie to eat how many cameras six six carrots now because of science we've given his body some time to digest the carrots and see if it makes any difference to his eyesight a s you're too long again the bottom line but it was so scientific carrots contain high levels of vitamin A or retinol in comparison to other foods the human body requires retinol to synthesize rhodopsin which is a pigment in the eye which enables you to see in low-light conditions so yes technically eating loads of carrots will enable you to see better in low light conditions however that I requires like to operate so doesn't matter how many carrots we will never be able to see in the dark myth 4 alcohol is all burnt off during cooking you can see what's coming I bought this breathalyzer from the internet for how much for 12 pound brilliant James has cooked up a lovely stew containing this amount of beer this amount of wine and this amount of Pernod this is a pint of that stew this is what we're going to do you're going to drink all of those great then we're going to breathalyze you and take your reading okay then we've cooked off all of that alcohol supposedly in this stew I'm going to drink this pint and we're going to take my reading and we're going to compare the two given like bit first is the first one under no circumstances the sorted condone irresponsible drinking this is purely for scientific reasons Cheers to help oh there's the heartburn test my reactions you watch I can drive one two three you a naught point naught naught does naught point naught two let's see if those figures have gone up nor point naught seven kids hi it says I'm not gonna get home oh no again one down your point no more science would Leming alcohol burns seventy eight point five degrees Celsius we usually cook things at a bigger higher temperature than that so you would expect the alcohol to get burnt off when you cook right wrong alcohol actually evaporates if left open at any temperature it's just that when heat and timer applied the more alcohol evaporates so basically the hotter the temperature and the longer that the alcohol is left at that temperature the less alcohol left in the in dish myth number five eaten cheese before bed gives you nightmares studied by the British cheese board I know concluded that in fact it doesn't give you nightmares it does give you more colorful and vivid dreams what is weird is the different cheeses give you different types of dreams so Stilton might give you weird and wacky dreams whereas cheddar might give you people centric dreams like dreaming of celebrities and red Leicester my keeping the style chick dreams believe what you want but the science behind it is the milk contains an amino acid called tryptophan cheese is basically just concentrated milk your body needs tryptophan to produce serotonin which is a sleep-inducing hormone so cheese doesn't give you nightmares but maybe it gives you more vivid dreams so we gave different members of the sorted food team different cheeses to try last night we all ate them before bed and you're gonna see the results in the after speaking of G's let's see what Ben's come up with in the kitchen right mate what have you got for us I've written a recipe and I think it involves as many of the myths as possible we've got carrots we've got flat champagne we're going to burn something alcohol off and it's got a lot of cheese to cheese soup Joe begins with a couple of shalat I'm gonna peel and finely dice a couple of carrots which we're going to peel and finely dice and a cup of cloves of garlic which we're going to key here low five nice very battered it gives on adding sound effects tiny chopping garlic this is better what's this one Shing Shing Shing Shing Shing Shing which which keep the dice nice and fine it will cook nice and quick plenty of butter into a pan sweat it off with a lid take about tempting the liquid of our soup a glass of flat champagne great use for it if you've got any left some apple juice and some veg stock splash it all into the pan with a little bit of paprika and public way for about 20 minutes are you confident this is going to work it's pretty easy it's a very simple soup the only thing is whether there is enough cheese to give that before do we want I haven't got the body I've won according to your Notes evers it says brie breaking melting blitz next yeah that's pretty much it so most of the alcohols bubbled off we've chopped the brie because it's easy and that will be easier it needs to melt and then we'll blitz it smooth then season to taste you definitely only need a very small portion or pour in that is cholesterol that is cheese soup little pinch of paprika and there we go cheese soup sorted right let's try this or face rich I'd really like that that's not too cheesy for me now we really like that obviously but all of our recipes are sorted food are trying and testing which means you do get more than one round of applause when you cook yeah so what we're going to do is pop up an Instagram today of that cheese soup and we want your comments how could we make it better happen we improve it how could we serve it with something different we want to know from you comment down below let us know and we will take that package Test Kitchen and we will get it properly developed and then it'll be up on sortedfood.com as a wrestling get really good at the fridge yeah best approach well if you enjoyed that then give it a like well also remember to leave us a comment because we read everything lots you want to know have been single so we'll answer that and also remember to subscribe because we will make you hungry yep I think that fridge family I'd like to have everything that is far-fetched it sure did it had top-notch scientific discovery how do you mean what feels like my first ever beer yes I've been told if you stay with us on the website then we're about to test the cheesy nightmare theory as a team and you'll be able to find out our results right now so stay with us I will see you Wednesday for some Halloween actions I don't want to go to your Halloween episode if you're gonna be like that exactly I don't know why I said that all right and by the way guys does this mean that we are now scientists yes official site official science high school and a scientist inside of me says there is something very understand about Estes there were no control no it feel can we not wait until the scientist is back outside what's the scientists name that lives inside of you I think I do know what you'll be doing that's why and there's still one more science experiment still to do which is why last night we all took a cheese home mm-hmm and we've logged my independent respective bedrooms made that bit very thick you did like that preparing totally

  1. Confuse your friends. instead of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich – serve them cheese soup and bruschetta (toasted tomato sandwich). 🙂

  2. I'm a medical technologist and we usually use refractometers on urine. So seeing you guys use it on food is really weird for me 🤣

  3. the carrot myth was a WW1 fraud of the UK air force so the Nazi intelligence won't suspect the inventions of the radar (fabricated a reason why they can shot at night) it is the history books (funny to read about it in 10th grade but for sure not a myth)

  4. Who else noticed while mike was throwing potatoes at Barry, James was in the background with three ladies surrounding him, lollll

  5. The carrot myth was a lie to explain British pilots ability to strike at night and to cover that they had on-board radars.

  6. I like to use my brie cheese with pancetta, portobello mushrooms, shallot, garlic ; all these ingredients into a bechamel sauce over angel hair.😮

  7. *not actual energy, lmao! Thank you for that, I was just about to ask what kind of camera u guys used to film all that energy.

  8. I do believe that this is the 1000th comment. Fun fact about the carrot myth. It was a ploy by the RAF to prevent the Axis powers from finding out that they had airborne interception radar, which at the time was a huge deal. It perpetuated the idea that carrots improved vision.

  9. Carrots never improved vision above its normal level. It was a double whammy during WW2. First the government wanted the people to eat more veg and second, the "Ministry of Information" put about the notion that pilots were shooting down German planes at night because they ate carrots (Not because of the new RADAR system).

    Vitamin A can reverse some vision issues in people who are deficient. If you have enough Vitamin A in your diet it will not improve your vision beyond what your healthy eye could achieve before.

    Vitamin A is an essential vitamin, which means your body can't make it. Your body can make some fatty acids, some amino acids and various other bits and bobs. This is why you see supplements providing "essential fatty acids" and "essential amino acids". Vitamins are the same. Because it's essential, Vitamin A deficiency is serious.

    It's also important to remember that Vitamin A is quite toxic if you have too much. This is part of the reason Beta-Carotene was removed from many supplements back in the 90's.

  10. That is not how alcohol works. You did that test wrong. You should have had the same person do it, or two people of the same body weight do it.

  11. Carrots and seeing in the dark was a myth invented by the British government to keep the secret that pilots were using interceptor radar to find German planes.

  12. if you seal your fizzies, the pressure will go up as the gas escapes. so sealing it in a small container, with the smallest amount of air space to pressurize, will maximize preserved fizz. Alternatively you can use as sodastream, or other compressed co2 nozzle, to re carbonate any liquid, from flat wine, to milk.

    The carrots make your eyesight better myth was invented intentionally by the allies in WW2 because spotters were replaced with radar, and they didn't want the axis to know they hadn't just all got a lot better at spotting all of a sudden.

  13. Carrots don't improve eyesight, but they maintain eye health. The origin of the story goes back to WW2 where the MoD wanted the enemy to believe it was locally grown carrots making them mad accurate rather than the newly invented RADAR. Carrots are good for you though, so keep them in your diet.

    Back in the 90's/80's Vitamin A supplements were quite popular and various other supplements often included Vitamin A too. Later it was discovered that supplemental Vitamin A was a cancer risk and overnight all such supplements lost their Vitamin A. Carrots and other organic sources of Vitamin A are safe, although…

    You can eat enough carrots to temporarily affect the colour of your skin, making it more yellow or orange than normal. It will return to normal if you stop eating kilograms of carrots every day.

  14. I read in a book that eating a lot of carrots would make your breast grow bigger. Ate more than I should, but nope, they didn´t grow. The things you believe when you´re a child…

    pure ethanol has decidedly different properties than some ethanol mixed in motherfucing gravy mates
