Eating processed foods is almost unavoidable, but not all products are the same. Varying levels of processed items have different amounts of additives and should be consumed with consideration of this. Students were asked to think about the amount of steps it takes to go from living plant to product in store. A sampeling of different processed grapes and peanuts made for a tangible example of the additional ingredients that comminly accompany processed foods. Potatoes are sprouting and will be mounded up next week to start getting those tubers swelling.
