5 Food Groups You Didn't Know Had a Hefty Serving of Carbs

  5 Food Groups You Didn't Know Had a Hefty Serving of Carbs "Is butter a carb?" Despite what Regina George was told, butter is indeed a fat. Even more surprising is how many healthy foods actually contain carbohydrates. When we think carbs, bread and pasta are probably what come to mind first. And though they're definitely the poster children of this macronutrient family, carbs come in all shapes and sizes. There is a difference between complex (good) carbs and simple (bad) carbs, but carbs are still carbs at the end of the day, and they can contribute to your overall intake in any form.

While both brie and camembert are cow's milk cheeses, are soft-ripening, and have a white, flowery rind, the two aren't interchangeable. So the next time you are at the store and must choose between brie or camembert, here's what you need to know.

  • Production: During the cheese-making process, cream is added to brie, but in camembert, it is not; as a result, brie is 60 percent milk fat, while camembert is only 45 percent. In addition, camembert uses stronger lactic starters that are inoculated into the cheese mould five times, contributing to a stronger-flavoured cheese. Brie's lactic starters are only put into the cheese mould once, therefore the cheese is milder.
  • Outer appearance: The diameters of brie and camembert cheese moulds are different. (Notice the Saint André brie to the left appears taller and smaller than the flat, round Ile de France camembert to the right. The camembert cheese mould has a specific size and weight of 250 grams.
  • Inner appearance: Brie tends to have a whitish inside, while camembert has a deeper yellowish colour. A very ripe camembert will have runny insides; most versions of brie in America, however, are stabilised, meaning the cheese's centre will have a firm texture that will never turn runny.
  • Smell and taste: Brie has a light, buttery scent and flavour with a salty finish. Camembert can be on the funkier side and smell earthy and barnyard-y like mushrooms or hay, with an intensely savoury, umami flavour.
  • Affinage: Brie is made to be consumed immediately. While Americans tend to eat cheeses on the younger side, in France, most will practice affinage, or the art of ripening cheese, and will wait for six or eight weeks before cutting into a wheel of gooey, ripened camembert.

50 Best Potato Recipes, Mashed and Beyond: As the world’s third most important crop, potatoes, which are grown in more than 100 countries around the world, can produce more food per unit of water than any other major crop, according to the International Potato Center.These impressive little tubers are indigenous to the Andes Mountains in South America, but they’ve spread around the world in just a few centuries. Researchers have identified more than 4,000 varieties of potato worldwide.Despite being such a diverse crop, most potatoes fall into one of two categories: starchy or waxy. Starchy potatoes, like the standard Idaho or russet, work best for dishes like mashed or baked potatoes; waxy ones, such as red potatoes and various fingerling varieties, are firmer and denser, and hold their shape when cooked — whether fried, roasted, or boiled.
