Our food framework is entrancing. From researchers making precious stones out of nutty spread to grapes detonating into plasma fireballs in the microwave, here are some of the weirdest and most interesting food facts that you likely never knew.
Keep scrolling to instruct yourself and inspire companions at your next supper party.
Researchers can transform peanut butter into diamonds.
Researchers at the Bayerisches Geoinstitut in Germany have found that since nutty spread is so wealthy in carbon, it’s conceivable to transform basic Skippy into precious stones.
All you require is to extricate the oxygen from the carbon dioxide found in the nut spread, and afterward order massive weight on the carbon abandoned.
Potatoes can ingest and reflect Wi-fi signals.
When Boeing needed to try out their remote flag on new planes in 2012, they set monster heaps of potatoes on seats. In view of their high water substance and compound cosmetics, potatoes ingest and reflect radio and remote flags simply like people do.
Each banana you eat is a clone.
Despite the fact that there are 1,000 assortments of bananas everywhere throughout the world, the normal yellow organic products you find in the grocery store are for the most part hereditary clones of the Cavendish assortment. The Cavendish was mass-created, as indicated by the Economist, since it doesn’t have seeds — an alluring attribute for customers — and it survives longer than its banana cousins.
Since the Cavendish does not have any seeds, it must be cloned by agriculturists keeping in mind the end goal to proceed with creation. As of late, farming researchers have been concerned that the absence of hereditary assorted variety could before long leave the banana helpless against dangers and eradication.
Honey will never under any circumstance turn sour.
Honey in its normal state is low in dampness and exceptionally acidic: two essential safeguards against food deterioration.

Here’s a fun (and perilous) science analyze: If you split a grape nearly into equal parts and place it in the microwave, it will make a dangerous fireball of plasma and lighting.

On the off chance that you warm up “nothing” in the microwave — or for this situation a little grape that doesn’t assimilate enough power — the electromagnetic waves have nothing to take a shot at and end up concentrated.
The grape itself at that point demonstrations like a receiving wire and directs the power in the microwave, causing little “plasma” fireballs.
