Reading for Breakfast

March 22, 2011

Well, I’m not reading for breakfast, really. I’m reading at breakfast. Pardon my grammar.

I’m studying, actually. And it’s been a looooong time since I’ve done any of that. I kind of forgot how mind-numbing and boring studying is. Or, rather, I purposefully cleared out that part of my brain to make way for all the other things clogging it up (Walnut, starting a company, baking, blogging, etc.)

I’m studying for my Food Safety Certification so I can package all of our products into their fabulous little boxes. Yay!

There’s some easy ones on the test, like this:

People can become ill from:

  1. Bacteria
  2. Viruses
  3. Parasites
  4. All of the above

Duh, easy one! (answer is d, people, stop scratching your head).

Then there’s some really hard ones like:

Chemical sanitizers are most effective at temperatures from:

  1. 50 to 75 degrees F
  2. 75 to 120 degrees F
  3. 140 to 170 degrees F
  4. 200 to 212 degrees F

This one takes a little thinking, because your first thought is a seemingly obvious answer of 50-75 degrees F: at or below room temperature. But the answer is 75-120 degrees F! Doesn’t that seem like a really high temp to store sanitizers?

Thus, some studying to do! Wish me luck!
