I'm gonna hijack this thread because it's pure shit and my question might not merit a thread on its own.
So I was checking around for info on surface bacteria on produce, the effect of washing (rinsing) produce in water on the total microbial population (really hard to find any good sources here, I'd appreciate it if anybody has any), and the reasoning behind recommendations for cold/lukewarm water over hot water when rinsing produce, besides the really trivial ones.
As it happened, I came over this explanation: >If the veggie is cold and you use hot water, there is a temperature differential that is set up and water may move into the produce carrying microorganisms with it (http://www.bestfoodfacts.org/food-for-thought/food-safety-produce)
By differential I assume she just meant a temperature gradient, but I can't for the life of me understand why a temperature gradient would cause water to move into (or even out of) the produce, and I'd really like an explanation for this.
>>7847932 Well, meme-anything is something that 'spread' to you because of other people. But don't hold me to that meaning, because meme __ is a meme itself, and the memeing kind of memespewers who meme the meme meme are unlikely to know what they're talking about.
