This month we discuss Sorting the beef from the bull by Richard Evershed and Nicola Temple.

Sorting the beef from the bull book cover


The horsemeat scandal opened our eyes to the fact that the food we eat is not always what it claims to be. Just how widespread is the problem, how do we detect it and what changes need to be made to prevent it? You are what you eat, and what you eat might surprise you.

Hear an extract from the book, an interview with Richard Evershed, and the views of the Chemistry World team in this month’s podcast. Listen here or subscribe to the podcast using the links below.
