Welcome to Don’t Eat the Pseudoscience! We are a group of young food scientists from various research and technical spaces that seek to make food easier to understand for everybody in a fun, personable, and relatable manner. Feel free to explore the site and connect with us here or on social media!
Whether what you eat is organic or GMO, processed or straight from the dirt, naturally or synthetically colored …or flavored, we believe the most important things about your food are safety, abundance, accessibility, taste, and nutrition.
Ensuring a safe, wholesome and stable food supply through science, and technology.
Acknowledging that food additives are not scary chemicals, but tools with helpful purposes, preservation, added nutrition, or enhanced functionality.
Thinking critically about what we read on social media about the food industry.
Involving our viewers, inviting them to share their thoughts and perceptions
Nourishing our bodies with a variety of foods in moderation, recognizing that foods high in calories and low in nutritional content should play a small role in one’s diet.
Getting information from science, specifically peer-reviewed journals, and other reputable studies.
