Netflix’s new original documentary series, “Rotten,” considers the origin of our groceries with a skepticism usually reserved for true-crime productions and detective dramas.

The six-part series explores a shadowy garlic business routed through Chinese prisons, the mystery behind America’s sudden spike in food allergies, and a global scandal called Honeygate.

The common thread throughout episodes such as “Cod Is Dead,” “Lawyers, Guns & Honey,” and “Garlic Breath” is the exploration of how corporate greed and corruption have quite literally changed the nature and origins of the food America consumes.

“Rotten” is available now on Netflix.
