Time and effort studies comparing the efficiency of pre-prepared meals with that of meals prepared from scratch

"Pre–cooked foods, made possible by new packaging development, are a major time–saver for housewives. Notice the difference in time and effort required in the preparation of a pre–cooked, pre–packaged goulash dinner and one fixed entirely from scratch. lights attached to the cook's wrists show how many more movements she had to make in the 90 minutes it took the long way, compared with the pre–cooked way which took only 12 minute."

(Elizabeth Diller, 1999, p.386)

US Corn Refiners seek to sweeten image through product rename

"High fructose corn syrup, essentially a liquid alternative to sugar that is derived from corn kernels, is known in Europe as glucose–fructose syrup or isoglucose. Thousands of popular foods, ranging from crisps to bread products, sweets and prepared meals, contain the ingredient. But sales have fallen sharply in the US amid attacks on the substance by campaigners who link it to America's twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes."

(Andrew Clark, 15 September 2010, The Guardian)
