Some food facts…

A few things we’ve learnt from the first week of the festival:

  • The average person produces half a litre of saliva each day
  • American Chocolate has soured milk added to it to reproduce its original taste
  • The number of overweight people in the UK has trebled in the last 20 years
  • 1-2% of whisky is lost through evaporation each year in the barrel
  • Fray Bentos is a town in Uruguay which supplied Britain with Oxo cubes and Corned Beef

No doubt more food (and drink) facts to follow this week!
