Overview

The essential guide for choosing safe and healthful food

A Consumer's Dictionary of Food Additives is back, in an up-dated fifth edition. This valuable reference gives you all the facts about the relative safety and side effects of more than 8,000 ingredients that end up indirectly in your food as a result of processing and curing, such as preservatives, food-tainting pesticides, and animal drugs. For example, drugs used to tranquilize pigs have actually been known to sedate diners!
        
More than 800 entries are new to this edition and cover recently developed food production technologies (genetically engineered vegetables, bovine growth hormone, and other outcomes of the processing of food today), as well as information on the new label regulations and on guidelines for safe food storage.
        
A Consumer's Dictionary of Food Additives is a precise tool that will tell you exactly what to leave on supermarket shelves as a reminder to manufacturers that you know what the labels mean and which products are safe to bring home to your family.
