1700 – English canned food…l’inizio del cibo in scatola

During the period of the Industrial Revolution, England changed its technology and history, ….and its food.
Until the arrival of the Industrial Revolution, the food that was always fresh.  With the Industrial Revolution came canned (= in scatola)goods, because people in the towns could not grow their own food and had to turn to (= rivolgersi a )stores. Meat and vegetables were packed into small tin cans (= scatole di latta) and hermetically sealed (=sigillate).  So, food could be kept good longer than before.
Most of the food which was canned included beef (=carne arrostita), pork (=maiale), ham (=prosciutto), and apples, cherries, pumpkin (=zucca), squash (=zucchini), and beans (=fagioli).
Another innovation was cheap colour printing (=stampe colorate): colourful labels (=etichette) attracted and interested people in food. Unfortunately, also adulteration started in the same period and  adding false substances became common in Industrial England: sand was put into the sugar; water increased the quantity of milk; vitriol was put into the beer and food colouring made food more attractive.
In 1820, Frederick Accum revealed in A Treatise on Adulterations of Food, and Culinary Poisons, this dangerous way to make food more attractive.
