A new week brings new Food Facts, and some very surprising ones, too, this round...
  • The name "Pepsi" comes from the word "dyspepsia," which means indigestion. Caleb Bradham, the creator of the soda, believed that the drink would aid in digestion
  • Suntory brewery in Japan brews a light lager called Precious that includes collagen as an active ingredient. It is aimed at women drinkers and marketed as helping drinkers ‘keep a clear complexion and look younger’
  • You will have to eat 7 cups of cornflakes to get the same amount of fibre you would get from one medium sized orange
  • Think hot weather only affects humans? Well, you’re wrong - mangoes also suffer from sunburn! After a period of 42-degree heat, mango growers in Perth (Australia) lost nearly a quarter of their crop due to sunburn, with the damage costing some farmers up to $40,000 and the spoiled fruit fed to the pigs
  • A family from Florida made the ABC news website last summer after being woken one night by a “noise like a thunder," only to find 15lbs of raw meat, including sausages, had landed in their front yard and on their roof. No one seems to know how it got there – was it a plane, was it a vandal, but most importantly, did they eat it all?
