Chips

Can green potato chips make you sick?

Technically, yes, but you’d have to eat such a large amount of them that it’s not worth worrying about.

First, let’s understand why parts of potatoes turn green. Potatoes, for the most part, are grown underground, but occasionally, a small part might be exposed to sunlight. Those exposed parts turn green as chlorophyll begins to form. Although most of these colorful outliers don’t make it onto the grocery store shelves, the occasional green potato might go overlooked, and this is why you might see a slice in one of your snack bags.

In terms of safety, chlorophyll is both tasteless and nontoxic. However, as a potato turns green, conditions are right for it to synthesize a glycoalkaloid poison called solanine, which potatoes produce to defend against insects and predators. Ingesting large amounts of solanine can cause vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, headaches, and a slew of other unpleasant symptoms—including death. The good news is that those toxic levels would equate to eating several pounds of green potatoes.

Long story short, the moderate solanine formation in one or two errant potato chips is not enough to do any harm.

Does Stainless Steel have a CAS Number?

However stainless steel and steel are not part of the European REACH directive (1907-2006-EC) there seem to be some examples of CAS numbers for stainless steel, however this looks more like a individual initiative from the supplier / producer.

Example: CAS 7439-89-6 ThyssenKrupp Stainless

Steel is not a chemical substansion as meant by REACH, but a product with several chemical elements. These elements do have a CAS number.

Restaurants and Dining Establishments

What is formal food service?

a sweet tender starter which may include pieces of a choice of fish, chicken, lamb, etc.

If vegetarian you can serve dishes of vegetable potatoes or other fresh ranges.

I think the question may refer to 'Silver Service': the diners are seated and waiters or servers move round the table offering each dish. Food is offered to the right of the diner and is placed on the diner's plate by the waiter using a fork and spoon, rather like chopsticks, to lift and transport the food.

Between courses wine waiters move around the table filling glasses which are placed on the table just above the knives at the right hand side of the plate.

After a course, plates and cutlery are cleared by servers moving in to the Left side of the diner. Then the next course is served in a similar way to the right of the diner.

There may be a toast in between courses when the host at the head of the table or a toastmaster will announce the toast. Diners may be expected to stand, to raise their glasses and repeat the phrasing of the toast, for example, "The Queen" before reseating themselves.

The array of cutlery and wine glasses at a formal dinner may be bewildering - the usual rule is to begin outside and work inwards. The serving staff will remove each piece of cutlery, crockery or wine glass as it becomes redundant and you simply pick up the outermost utensil for the next course.

Is Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix two tier?

Depends on the size of the cake. When I'm making a cake I use one box for one tier. The sizes are on the back of the box. If using round cake pans they show two cakes but they're not very thick cakes. Tiers are usually at least 3" thick. The cakes are usually only 1-2" baked (2 - 9" rounds)

My advice is to google (Wilton.com has a good size chart) how many boxes per pan you need for the size cake you're trying to make.

I have used that cake mix before for a 4 tier round cake. I used a thread to split both cakes in half and cooled them down. I then put one of the tops of the cake facing down on the plate and began layering and filling.

Does chocolate cause acne?

Nope! The list of things we know actually causes acne is not very long, but we do know this: Chocolate, and greasy foods, for that matter, are not on it.

Medical professionals believe genetics, changing hormones, greasy makeup, and taking certain medications are the factors at play, not what you eat. However, if you already have acne, certain things can make it worse, like pollution, humidity, and stress.

Colonial America
Desserts, Snacks, and Treats

What did colonial children eat for snacks?

The odds for them to have snacks was remote. Each family had to grow their own foods. Or pick things that were growing in the wild. If they would run out of foods during the winter; then the odds were high that they would die from starving!

They also had to have enough wood to keep themselves warm and able to cook, through winters.

Praying to God is the most important! God often helped!

Goiabada (guava paste) is a popular dessert throughout the Portuguese-speaking countries of the world, dating back to the colonial days in Brazil, where guavas were used as a substitute for the quinces used to make marmelada (quince cheese).
