Quiz: How Much Energy Does It Take To Make Your Food?

Jordan Wirfs-Brock
For Harvest Public Media

From apples to zucchini, from milk to cheese, from chicken to chorizo, our modern food production turns energy from fossil fuels into food.

Some food products have a light environmental touch. But some of the foods we eat have a massive impact.

How much do you know?

As part of Harvest Public Media's Feasting On Fuel project, Inside Energy’s Jordan Wirfs-Brock has created this simple quiz to test your knowledge, or best guesses, on how much energy it takes to create basic food products.

Jordan Wirfs-Brock is the data journalist for Inside Energy. KCUR's Harvest Public Media is working with Inside Energy on Feasting On Fuel, a series of stories looking at how energy fuels our food system. 

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and award-winning podcasts.
