Jimmy’s Food Factory, Series 1
Instant coffee, processed cheese, square sandwich ham – behind every supermarket product is a process and behind every process is a scientific breakthrough. In this entertaining and thought-provoking programme, farmer and TV personality Jimmy Doherty unpacks the science behind the food items we buy every day – from stay-fresh bread to soft scoop ice cream. Working from a makeshift science lab inside a barn, Jimmy carries out experiments to uncover the secrets of food technology. Exploding myths and revealing the little-known processes of food production, Jimmy’s Food Factory will change the way you think about food.

If there’s a question you have that we haven’t yet answered let us know in the comments on any of our videos and it could be answered by one of our Earth Lab experts.

Nmethyltransferase says:

Those cows are raping themselves!

Or is that just masturbation?

Allan Rossatti says:

Hapoy or not, drinking secretions from another species tities is just for pussies. Stop breastfeeding allready. How dumb can you be to drink this crap? Or even eat their by producs. Is really disgusting.

Katie Kat says:

They had the automatic brush massager there too. I saw it in the video. Those things are tens if not thousand dollars to buy one. And all they do is make cows happy. The cows love them. It’s nice when were start treating animals a little bit better for all the work and pain they go through for us.

(وَإِنَّ لَكُمْ فِي الْأَنْعَامِ لَعِبْرَةً نُّسْقِيكُم مِّمَّا فِي بُطُونِهِ مِن بَيْنِ فَرْثٍ وَدَمٍ لَّبَنًا خَالِصًا سَائِغًا لِّلشَّارِبِينَ)
And indeed, for you in grazing livestock is a lesson. We give you drink from what is in their bellies – between excretion and blood – pure milk, palatable to drinkers.

Modern Dairy Machines says:

Appreciating this kind of Expos and they have to be encouraged, such that many endangered species can be saved out of it. It is convincing and will effectively support whomsoever viewing this video.

Andrew Resler says:

And the next day, the cow gets slaughtered for meat
