Rob Shewfelt retired as a Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor of Food Science and Technology at the University of Georgia in 2013. He taught courses in Chocolate Science, Coffee Technology, Food Chemistry and Food Processing. His new book is In Defense of Processed Foods. His research focuses on tracing fresh fruits and vegetables from farm to market. When you want something healthy you tend to look for the words “organic” and “natural” on packaging at the grocery store. What many people don’t realize is that many foods with these labels are actually processed. “Natural” foods such as baby carrots are even disinfected with chlorine. Rob Shewfelt, an expert in food science, explains why processed foods shouldn’t get such a bad rep.
