    Additives are a part of modern food life but they’re not all bad. Despite our best intentions, we can’t always eat fresh and to make food safe, stable and taste good, we need a few additives. But which ones? This handy ebook tells you.

    Cooking is similar to processing

    This ebook explores the notion that cooking does similar things to processing, whether drying, salting, pickling, canning or freezing. Adding salt or sugar or soy sauce at home does not make food healthier and “better” than bought foods.

    It outlines the 23 classes of additives in use and shows you how to find them on food labels. It lists those that are harmless or that you’re probably already consuming such as citric acid 330 (found in lemons and all citrus fruits) or magnesium sulphate 518, better known as Epsom salt that you add to a bath to soak in.

    It lists those additives to steer clear of that have long been a problem such as the colours, preservatives and flavour enhancers. There’s a convenient list of the 18 suspicious additives for you to bookmark or print out and keep when shopping.

    It finishes with a 4-step plan to avoid ALL additives if you still think you need to and describes the trend to “Clean Labels” that manufacturers are now adopting.

    Drawing on her own experiences as a dietitian, educator and industry consultant, Catherine guides readers logically through the maze of information that is on any food label. She simplifies and makes it interesting and memorable. Through everyday examples (the "Inside Story"), she brings additives to life and shows the roles they play to keep food safe and fresh.

    Why I wrote this eBook

    "I want to help you navigate a middle course where you can provide nutritious healthy meals for yourself and those you love with maximum convenience and minimum additives. There IS a balance between fresh and additive-free versus convenience plus additives. After years of working with the food industry and teaching others how to figure out the ingredients, let me now share these secrets with you".  Catherine Saxelby
