In Memoriam

Another loss for the processed food industry.

Joseph L. Owades, a biochemist credited with inventing, for better or worse, light beer but whose product lacked the macho marketing that later made Miller Lite a sensation, died of a heart ailment Friday at his home in Sonoma. He was 86.

This follows, by just over a month the death of the inventor of Stove Top Stuffing, Ruth Siems.

If I was the inventor of microwave popcorn, I'd be pretty nervous right now.


Too late.
