Are you counting calories? Here's how food scientists get their figures.
We humans are dependent on chemicals like water, air, sugars, starches, fats, proteins, as well as on small amounts of vitamins and minerals.
"Today, high calorie foods are not only abundant; they contain much higher amounts of sugar and fat than what's found in natural food sources."
How does your body know to stop digesting after all the food is gone?
Ever wonder how they determine how many calories are in food?
We need water, or H2O, to maintain our bodies in a fluid state. Water even gets involved in chemical reactions that occur in our stomachs, which break down foods containing sugars, starches, and proteins.
