Have you ever wondered what is really inside your food? Moreover, did you wish to know what it looked like? Well, thanks to photographer Dwight Eschliman and science writer Steve Ettlinger, now you can do just that.
Check out their new book called Ingredients: A Visual Exploration of 75 Additives & 25 Food Products.
From acesulfame potassium to xanthan gum, 75 common food additives are demystified in this book. Take a look at what they look like, where they come from and where and why they are used. You may even find some historic facts about them. You may get really surprised – Eschliman himself was, he said, by “just how thoroughly this world is full of white powders and clear liquids.”, according to NPR. Other than additives, the authors of Ingredients: A Visual Exploration of 75 Additives & 25 Food Products have also taken the time to describe the 25 ordinary food products that contain these ingredients, such as McNuggets and Snickers Bars.
If you want to know what it is that you’re eating and what it will do to your body, there is probably no better way than getting Ingredients: A Visual Exploration of 75 Additives & 25 Food Products.
