7 Interesting Food Facts You Still Might Not Know

Everyday we consume different kinds of food. But how sure are you that what you are eating is healthy or not? Oftentimes, we think that when a food smells okay, it is also okay to eat it. But this does not apply to all.

So, here are some interesting facts about food that you need to know that might even help you one day. 

1. Honey has no expiration date

The oldest pot of honey that was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter is still edible. Biologist tested it and found out that it is still fit for consumption. This is because honey is acidic, has no water, and has hydrogen peroxide. 

2. Never drink tea that is not freshly brewed

We often think that it is easier  for us to drink tea that went cold. However, according to a Japanese saying, "Yesterday's tea bites worse than a snake." This means, that cold tea can irritate your stomach linings and can make you feel uncomfortable.

3. Bananas attracts mosquitoes

People who recently ate a banana would most likely attract mosquitoes. This is because bananas contains octenol, an odor that attracts these insects. So if you are going outdoors, avoid eating a banana. Otherwise, put on an insect repellant. 

4. Never feed birds with avocados

Never feed birds with avocados, because this fruit contains persin, a substance that can be dangerous to birds. 

5. An egg that floats on water is bad for you

You know that when an egg stinks or rotten, it is not safe to eat. But you must also know that when an egg floats on water, it is considered a bad egg meaning it is no longer edible. When an egg gets older, gases accumulate inside causing it to float.

6. Red spot on egg

If you ever saw a red spot when you cracked open an egg, these are actually blo0d spots or meat spots caused by ruptured blood vessel during the egg's formation. The spots does not mean that the hen is unhealthy but possibly because of the hen's diet and age. 

7. Small piece of dark chocolate before meal can prevent you from eating too much

If you are on a diet, try eating a small piece of dark chocolate before meal. This can prevent you from consuming too much food because it raises up your blo0d glucose and can immediately make you full.
