SOME FUN FOOD FACTS(FFF) and A QUESTION!!!

I was doing some research on some food facts and i came across some interesting ones and i wanted to share it with all of u.
  • Carrots Really Can Help You See In The Dark!!

Vitamin A is known to prevent "night blindness," and carrots are loaded with Vitamin A. So, why not load-up today!

  • The Word "Salary" Comes From "Salt!"

Salt, our oldest preservative, was extremely rare in the past. So rare, in fact, that it was often used as pay. Imagine...earning a couple of tablespoons of salt for a hard-days work. Today, salt is so common that restaurants give it away for free, and packaged food contains so much that it's far too easy to eat too much salt (salt is also known as "sodium").

  • Sometimes Frozen Fruits And Vegetables
    Are More Nutritious Than Fresh!

The longer that fruits or vegetables sit around waiting to be sold or eaten, the more nutrients they lose. But fruits and vegetables grown for freezing are usually frozen right after they're picked. Therefore, they have less time to lose their nutrients.

  • It Takes 3500 Calories To Make A Pound Of Fat!

So, as long as you're active, and burning of calories, calories shouldn't have too much of a chance to turn into fat.

More FFF later.:)

TRIVIA QUESTION: I was first discovered thousands of years ago, growing in the Andes mountains in South America. However, my early ancestors were small and rather bitter tasting. I was introduced to India in the early 17th century, reaching China a short time thereafter. Upon my arrival in Europe I was called a variety of names, some of which had to do with my resemblance to a truffle. Today, I am the main ingredient in an extremely popular snack food that no fast food restaurant would be caught without. What am I?
