Bacon sandwiches in space

Dallas Campbell talks about how engineering links to the production and packaging of foods.  He gives the example of the bacon sandwich that was designed for Tim Peake to eat in microgravity on board the International Space Station.  Both the bread itself, and the can it was contained in, had to be designed and adapted for spaceflight.
