"As many as 90 percent of processed foods found in supermarkets today contain food additives of one kind or another. Why is this? What are food additives? Are they necessary? How can we identify those that are good for us and those that are not?
Decoding Food Additives is a comprehensive guide to food additives and food labelling. It provides the latest information about each additive approved for use in Australia and New Zealand, including the acceptable daily intake and any potential adverse side effects or health concerns.
In addition Decoding Food Additives addresses consumer concerns such as nutritional labelling, genetic modification or fortification of foods, toxicity, food allergies and intolerance and links between hyperactivity and food additives."
