Nearly every week since March 1994, Chow Line has been answering questions about food, nutrition and food safety. It has grown into the place to find research-based, factual information presented in a simple, practical form.
My goal is to help cut through the clutter of food claims and bring you the most up-to-date guidance about the food that you eat. I work with a knowledgeable team of faculty and we love getting your questions about food safety, food products or nutrition to answer in future columns. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of my previous food safety related columns are listed below. Hope to see you soon in the Chow Line.
