Next Episode of Superfoods: The Real Story is
Kate Quilton returns for a new series investigating the purported health benefits of superfoods. Superfoods seem to be everywhere - not a day goes by without a 'superfood' story hitting the headlines. Backing up these eye-grabbing stories are thousands of studies devoted to connecting the humblest of ingredients to the grandest of claims. But just what can we believe? Kate investigates the real science behind the supposed health benefits and reveals which foods truly deserve the title - super.
Kate visits Chile to see if the mysterious macqui berry could be a dieter's dream come true. There's also superoats and the heart. And is offal really that awful?
Kate visits Ghana, to find out if peanut butter is a life saver. Also, do oysters sweeten the mood and have we underestimated the pea as a foodstuff?
Kate travels to South Africa, to see if the baobab tree might help with diabetes. There's also a look at bee pollen and experiments with prunes at zero gravity.
Kate Quilton goes to the limit on a trip to Ireland to prove that watercress is a contender as a sporting superfood. Gout is thought to be the disease of kings, but could it be dethroned by the lowly onion? And Kate's in for a tropical treat, as she travels to Spain to uncover the cancer fighting properties of mangoes.
