Science in Your Shopping Cart

by ARS Information Staff

Who finally broke the great San Francisco sourdough bread mystery? Helped make frozen concentrated orange juice tasty? Bred a better chili pepper and improved the taste of tortillas? Improved dairy cows and beef cattle, turkeys, and chickens? You knew it all the time; it's the Agricultural Research Service! This illustrated booklet tells the ongoing story of ARS contributions to the abundance, variety, convenience, and healthfulness of the contents of American shopping carts. Color, 36 pp.
