University of Guelph
Whole wheat pasta is a high-fibre, healthy alternative to traditional white flour pasta, but its texture may be too soft for some people. Now, a University of Guelph researcher is trying to change that by studying how gluten influences texture, so that manufacturers can make whole wheat pasta more palatable. Prof. Jayne Bock, a food science researcher, hopes this will help consumers increase their fibre consumption.

Mustard to battle against wireworms
CBC News
As wireworms spread across P.E.I., costing potato growers millions of dollars by damaging crops, farmers are turning to a new rotation crop for the fight. Wireworms, the larval form of the click beetle, have become a serious agricultural pest on the Island in the last couple of years. Wireworms live in the ground, beyond the reach of insecticides sprayed on the surface. The insects dig holes in potatoes as they grow, making them unfit for sale. The pest cost the industry on the Island $6 million last year.

Food Dive
While the "clean plate club" has lost popularity in many American households, the concept behind that phrase is still easy to grasp today: It’s wrong to waste the food you have. And while the number of people in the world that do not get enough to eat has fallen since 1990, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations still estimates that there are still 842 million people hungry today.

Bakery and Snacks
New findings that the body is less efficient at metabolising folic acid than natural folates could inform policy-making decisions as the U.K. government considers mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid.

China's latest food scandal the first to ensnare the likes of McDonald's, Starbucks
The Globe and Mail
The beef was several months past its due date but it would be mixed with fresher cuts and shipped out anyway. On the factory floor, meat dropped on the ground, recycled beef patties and defective chicken nuggets were all tossed back into the production chain.

Food Navigator
The effects of air pollution on the ozone, coupled with higher global temperatures could combine to reduce crop yields. However effects will vary by region, say researchers.
