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 our 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. Harvest Public Media is working with Inside Energy on Feasting On Fuel, a series of stories looking at how energy fuels our food system.
