A look back at a selection of investigations from the Food Unwrapped casebook. Jimmy Doherty asks why so much bacon in supermarkets is Danish, and learns how mites are used to make some traditionally matured cheese. Kate Quilton finds out why most British supermarkets stock only one variety of banana and heads to Malaysia to learn about a disease threatening the future of the popular fruit. She also tracks down the slippery fellows used in the increasingly popular jellied eels. Matt Tebbutt heads to a Scottish distillery to find out what gives whisky its distinctive flavour, and goes on an egg hunt to learn about rare double yolks.
