Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. Or is it? In this episode of Gastropod, we explore the science and history behind the most intentionally designed, the most industrialized, and the most argued about meal of all.

Armed with a healthy dose of caffeine chronopharmacology, we embark on a global breakfast tour that exposes the worldwide dominance of Nutella, as well as the toddler kimchi acclimatization process. Meanwhile, back in the U.S., we trace the American breakfast’s evolution from a humble mash-up of leftover dinner foods to its eighteenth-century explosion into a feast of meats, griddle cakes, eel, and pie—followed swiftly by a national case of indigestion and a granola-fueled backlash. Breakfast has been a battleground ever since: in this episode, we not only explain why, but also serve up the best breakfast contemporary science can provide.

Most of us eat breakfast every day, but we rarely think of the the origins behind the meal. From etymology to cultural history - go deeper behind breakfast on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past as Linda Pelacchio is joined by author of "Breakfast, A History", Heather Arndt Anderson. Hear how the grab-and-go approach for breakfast has maintained over time and why grains have proven to be so important not only in the meal but in human evolution at large. Discover the early days of the Kellogg brothers as they searched a product that was easy to chew and ended up revolutionizing the way we eat breakfast. From corn to dairy and coffee to cocktails, dig deep into breakfast on A Taste of the Past. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons. Break music provided courtesy of Cookies.

"Breakfast was always a grab and go meal and that's a trend that's maintained over time." [6:00]

"In the Renaissance, egg cookery was a pretty big deal. They found hundreds of new ways to cook eggs." [21:00]

"Because of poor water quality in the Middle Ages, small beer was the most common beverage during breakfast." [24:00]
