A look back at a selection of investigations from the Food Unwrapped casebook.

She also tracks down the slippery fellows used in the increasingly popular jellied eels. Matt Tebbutt heads to a Scottish distillery to find out what gives whisky its distinctive flavour, and goes on an egg hunt to learn about rare double yolks.
