The world likes quinoa, but there’s a big problem: Supply-chain issues worldwide are driving up the cost. Wonkblog has a really interesting look at the problem, one which has led some quinoa-friendly food chains to stop carrying it, at least temporarily.

How to solve world hunger with pizza
The idea of a universal food synthesizer sounds like something straight out of the Jetsons or Star Trek, but thanks to a $125,000 grant from NASA, a 3-D food printer may become a reality.
Anjan Contractor, a senior mechanical engineer at Systems and Materials Research Corporation, is already working on bringing the idea to fruition.
NASA’s interested because storing the various ingredients as a power greatly extends their shelf life for lengthy travel through space, but Contractor wants to keep all of the recipes open source, so the general public could eventually benefit as well.
So how will the pizza be made?

Pizza will be one of the first items printed because of its natural layers of ingredients. First, a layer of dough will be printed and baked at the same time using a heated plate at the bottom of the printer. A layer of tomato base will follow — made of powder, water and oil — then a protein layer will top the pizza.

Defense Distributed, why couldn’t you have been “Dough Distributed”?

Bad News Fish Fans: A recent study of D.C. area restaurants and grocery stores revealed 87 percent of the establishments were misrepresenting one or more of their seafood offerings. The study was carried out at 674 retail locations, pretty much eliminating any chance of a “poor sample size” counter-argument, and has us wondering how we can teach an iPhone to sample our fish before we buy/eat it. source

America fills the Super Bowl with empty calories

  • 1,200the average calories consumed by Americans while watching the Super Bowl, according to the Calorie Control Council. We must admit, that figure was a little surprisingly low to us, when you consider it’s still shy of most people’s daily caloric targets, but as always, context matters — eating 2000 healthful calories in a day is still vastly preferable to the usual chips-n’-pizza Super Bowl fare, especially the over 1 billion chicken wings America is expected to eat tomorrow. source

Twinkie deals: Hostess liquidation gets tons of interest

  • 50+ companies have signed non-disclosure agreements in order to open discussions with Hostess about the possibility of purchasing one or more of the snack maker’s most famous brands. While the company’s chances are looking increasingly grim, it doesn’t look like the closing of Hostess will be the end of many people’s favorite snacks. The company has also reportedly received several buy-out offers, though none were actionable according to Hostess. source

Pastry News of the Day: Although news of Hostess’ impending liquidation continues to tear at the heartstrings of many Americans, we can rest assured that the Twinkie may, in fact, live on as a subsidiary of Pabst Brewing Company. Ernie is hoping for PBR-flavored Twinkies to emerge from this sale. (It’s like dipping them in water, right? — Ed.) Personally, I’m horrified that two things I do not even remotely enjoy might Voltron together into a dangerous combination of awful that will likely plague any/every social gathering I attend here in Colorado. — Scott @ SFB
Update: Apparently the universe is on our side Tumblr. There won’t be PBR Twinkies after all.
