For decades now, the food industry has constantly produced new chemicals and additives to transform our food products. Food additives are the chemicals added to food to change its color, for its preservation, to keep fats emulsified and to make the appearance and flavour stable. Additives include ascorbic acid, which is used to prevent food from rotting, emulsifiers to help mix oil and water together, and active packaging that improves the quality or safety of food. All food additives in the UK and Europe are controlled by law, and can only be used following stringent tests and approval by an independent committee of scientists and medical experts.
Today’s chemical food manufacturing techniques have made the proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” questionable.
