5.0 out of 5 stars If you thought you knew about E numbers, think again and read this book., 28 April 2010
This review is from: Stefan Gates on E Numbers (Paperback)
Food for thought? This book will challenge all of your pre-conceived ideas about food additives.

Written from the perspective of a sceptical food consumer, Stefan seeks the advice and insight of Professors, Food Scientists, Molecular biologists, GP's and a whole host of experts on the subject of E numbers. Stefan encourages the reader to be open-minded and leave our pre-conceptions at the door and to have perspective on the food challenges that face us in the 21st Century. Most importantly, he asks us to put a bit of effort into understanding the facts on the subject rather than yield to the media mantra that E numbers are going to poison you. The result is an interesting, well-balanced and down to earth book that brilliantly challenges the widely held view that all E numbers are bad for us and that we should avoid them at all cost. Drawing many parallels and comparisons with 'natural' foods and additives and even those found in our own bodies, it introduces a new perspective to food additives. Stating the facts not the fiction it certainly doesn't let the food industry, media nutritionists or sceptics off the hook either, but tells it like it is. It also includes an excellent directory of all of the E numbers, their uses and where you might find them, making it a great reference book too. A must read for anyone interested in food.
