没营养?防腐剂?其实多数人对罐头食品的认识都是错的

中国评书里经常说一句话“兵马未动,粮草先行——食物是战争中至关重要的因素。历史上最伟大的军事家之一拿破仑深刻认识到这一点,悬赏12000法郎,征集能够为军队保存食物的方法。在那个时代,能够长期保存食物的方法不多,尤其是即食食品,几乎没有什么办法。一位名叫尼古拉·阿佩尔的厨师注意到,封装在瓶子中的食物经过加热,如果没被打开就可以保存很长的时间而不坏。基于这一发现,他反复试验摸索长达十多年,终于发明了罐装保存食品的技术。1810年,他获得了这笔奖金。罐头食品的发明,堪称食品技术史上的里程碑之一。最初,尼古拉用了蜡和线来封装玻璃瓶,后来又采用软木塞。不过,这样的生产工艺效率低下,并不能有效地解决军队 …
