Fresh vs. Raw

Sometimes one wonders if being a lawyer is something mandatory, when dealing with food. For example: does ‘raw’ equals ‘fresh’ and does ‘fresh’ equals ‘raw?’

It doesn’t. So why all this fuzziness with words when it comes to food? One would think that consumers should be both the best informed as well as the best protected individuals. Oh, I get it, yeah, profit-margins and such.



I’m told that the Chinese used ice to store and preserve food/s over 3000 years ago. I have no problem believing mankind being that smart or investigative early on. But then I ask myself, ‘Who or what gave us those frigid temperatures?’ Given the minus [-] 273 degrees Celsius out there, I guess the universe does.
