Summary Join Lee for a mouth-watering episode of SCOPE all about the science in food! We find out how stretchy cheese is, turn milk to plastic and learn what happens when you give lemurs carrots instead of bananas!<br /><br />Vertical Food Wall<br />Most veggie gardens require a huge amount of time, effort and space. But as Marc Noyce from BIOFILTA explains, vertical food walls could be the future when it comes to home-grown produce!<br /><br />Flavour Creations<br />Humans swallow around 900 times a day! But if you have dysphasia, swallowing can be a real problem, especially when it comes to eating! That's why Vaughan Gough from Flavour Creations has been designing thickened fluids for people with this disorder!<br /><br />Cheese Science<br />Cheese comes in many different varieties, but not all cheeses are equal! As Michael Mazzonetto from the CSIRO explains, when it comes to cheese how it tastes is just the beginning!<br /><br />DIY Science - Plastic Milk<br />Join junior scientists Ellie and Konrad as they turn milk into plastic! It's not a magic trick, it's just good science.<br /><br />Lemur Diet<br />We catch up with Damien Lewis from Melbourne Zoo, as he replaces bananas with carrots in this lemur diet overhaul!<br /><br />Extrusion Snacks<br />Chips, biscuits and lollies are all sometimes snacks! Svenja Beck from CSIRO is using an extrusion machine to try and transform snack foods into healthy treats.<br /><br />All that and more on a positively salivating episode of SCOPE: where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!
