Over 600 additives, allergens, antioxidants, chemicals, nutrients, ingredients, acronyms and nutrition terms explained
Do you know your MCTs from your LCTs? How about sterols from stanols? What’s the difference between glucose and dextrose? Or probiotics and prebiotics? Why do we need calcium? What additive is number 330? How safe is acesulfame K? If you find yourself confused by food labels and ads for healthy eating, Catherine Saxelby’s comprehensive guide My Nutritionary will help you cut through the jargon and put the power of her nutrition know-how in your hands.
We live in a world with constantly changing nutrition advice – eat more of this, avoid that – but increasingly this information uses scientific terminology that few of us are familiar with. When everyone from diet gurus to wellness bloggers to celebrity chefs and even your doctor has suggestions for healthy eating, translating the latest nutrition jargon into useful terms can be overwhelming.
In My Nutritionary, Catherine gives you short easy answers in plain English, helping you navigate through the jargon so you know what you’re eating. If you want to know exactly what you’re putting in your shopping trolley – or on the dinner table - this is the guide for you. Hashtag #MyNutritionary
