How well do you know your food? Did you think soaked almonds make you smarter or that men should not have Soya? Is Batata (potato) really a Marathi word? Are these true facts or just ‘chronic’ myths circulated for ages?

Fittr Podcast looks at food through the lens of science, history, culture and its unrevealed impact on our bodies. Host Jitendra Chouksey will realign the facts and stories we claim to know about everyday foods and help you demystify delusions about how you eat.

Each episode will look at the evolution of a specific food item from its origin to how we know it today.
