Food Tech offers an interesting look at what goes into today's popular meals. Much of the show's energy comes from Bognar himself, who enthusiastically shares bits of historic and scientific information while exploring the various ranches, farms, and processing plants that produce these foods.

The show is definitely informative -- foodies and cooking enthusiasts will enjoy learning about what goes into creating meltable cheese and crunchy dill pickles -- but some viewers may be concerned about some of the topics that arise, including injecting hormones into cattle to fatten them and other scientific techniques used to improve the taste and texture of certain food items. But if those kind of issues don't bother you, overall the show offers a fun perspective on what goes into making some of our favorite eats.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
