  • Sick of crying every time you see an onion? We get it, so for this episode of #unisg_bitesize, we have decided to hand over the villain: introducing alliinase, an enzyme present in the bulb, which causes a chain reaction if damaged. Long story short, ammonia and sulfenic acids are set free, turning into a volatile compound, turning into sulfuric acids, turning into a complete cry fest. If you want to find out how to stop at least the crying from happening, check out @fabrizz27 article on www.thenewgastronome.com!

  • Carne is king – or is it? According to @fao our annual meat consumption might rise to 500 million tones by 2050, completely collapsing our entire food system. Does that make meat the villain, though? No, but it could surely be helpful to change your meat-eating habits a little bit, choosing a nose-to-tail approach or at least beef from a really high-quality farm, when you do enjoy a piece – like this aged one that we got from our strategic partner @eatalygram - for an environment where everyone can live happily 🐮

  • The sense of sight is one of the main drivers when it comes to food choices. Not only, does it effect our decision to ingest food or not, it also creates access to many possible dimensions. Our alumni @andrea.bianchi explores the different visual appearance of food with neon light. Read the full photo essay on www.thenewgastronome.com

  • Friendly reminder that food studies are not always just about the food itself, but also about everything that surrounds it, like nature, French mountains and sometimes even a donkey or two! Can you see the #donkeylove in @ceci_n_est_pas_letizia 's eyes?
