On several different situational comedies, I’ve seen the situation where People A are competing with People B’s food product. So, People A attempt to ateal some of B’s product in order to send it to some lab or another to be tested so that the secret ingrediant may be brought to light.
How realistic is this? I would imagine that if we can map out the human genetic code and find the gene for dyslexia, we ought to be able to determine if some pizza sauce contains celery salt or not. On the other hand, a strictly chemical analysis might determine that said sauce contains strands of CH2O4S2, but it wouldn’t be able to say if the chemical came from celery salt, parsley, dried slugs or just the jar of CH2O4S2 on the shelf.
So which is it? Can I enlist the powers of my secret lab to reveal the Colonel’s eleven herbs and spices?
