  • Most wasabi consumed is not real wasabi but coloured horseradish (real wasabi comes from grating the root of the Wasabia Japonica which can be found in Japan).
  • The name ‘Pepsi' comes from the word ‘dyspepsia’ which means indigestion. Caleb Bradham, the creator of the soft drink, believed that the drink would aid in digestion.
  • Gummy Bears are 79 millimetres in length.
  • Exposing mushrooms to a short time in sunlight – even behind glass on a windowsill – can prompt them to generate enough vitamin D to meet your daily requirements.
  • In the US 40% of produce grown is never sold/eaten because it is considered 'too ugly.'
  • Kopi Luwak is one of the most expensive coffees in the world and one of the most disgusting delicacies. The Indian coffee beans are first eaten by Asian palm civets and then defecated and collected.
