Food Unwrapped returns unveiling more secrets about our food, thanks to the globe-trotting trio of Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton and Matt Tebbutt. This time Jimmy and Matt are braving the heat of chilli peppers, including some of the hottest in the world. Jimmy heads to South Africa on the trail of sweet piquanté peppers, and discovers a curious case of ‘plant breeder’s rights’ – which allow companies to effectively ‘own’ a fruit or vegetable. Kate looks into Britain’s plastic recycling crisis, and discovers one type of very common food packaging that can’t be recycled, which one major supermarket has made plans to ditch. In Germany, Matt investigates a new type of yoghurt that claims to be full of fibre – but doesn’t have any bits in it – and the secret involves chicory.
