The average shopper often buys food on trust with little idea of its true quality. This work, by an award-winning writer, examines all the foods we routinely buy, asking how they match up to the standards that modern food consumers are increasingly demanding.

But it's ten years old now, and while still entirely worth reading it could be reissued with updated information and perhaps alternative stockists. Publishers mystify me; one would think they would seize on books like this, but they don't.
You can see her frustration about how people are ignoring some of the issues. How, instead of treating food as an important thing in our world we're treating it quite badly. She has some rants against instant food and devitalised food but they're relatively restrained. It's much more readable than some of the others on this topic and the only reason I didn't give it 5* is that as a 11 year old book it's a little dated, but the core message remains, you are what you eat and with the rubbish that people are eating at the moment what is that making us?
