It’s a very quiet day in the papers for food and drink news – aside from the mass outpouring of schadenfreude after Iceland finally sacked Kerry Katona as its public, erm, face.

Interested parties in the latest episode of that tawdry tale include the Sun, the Mirror, the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian.

In other news, the Financial Times reports on a likely spike in citrus prices in the US.

After yesterday’s controversy over whether processed meat gives you bowel cancer, more bad news for the ham sandwich lobby – the Telegraph has news of a study that says bread might contain more folic acid than is strictly good for us. And too much folic acid gives you – that’s right – bowel cancer.

Meanwhile, today’s 'implausible health benefits' story in the Daily Mail - news that eating kiwi fruits can help lower blood pressure.

And that’s pretty much it.
