    Maybe processed (i.e., cooked) food can be a good thing after all.

    Not to advocate saturated fats, sugar &c. A lot of modern processing is not so good. And later farming helped all this along considerably.

    It's nice that they provide a written transcript for video Luddites like me.

    Nevertheless an interesting presentation.

    In another 100 years, we'll just skip the food and consume manufactured mush that is dense in proteins and nutrients. icon_biggrin.gif

    I didn't know they made this, I love chorizo; I'll have to look for it.

    Yup. I have some every now and then, say once a month or even less. And every time I do I'm in love again. It's like going to Kentucky Fried Chicken and getting a thigh done with Original Recipe; loaded with grease perhaps, but also loaded with flavor and juiciness. (Plus I save the reusable plastic container that the coleslaw comes in with its red snap on lid.)
