    Book details

This work cracks the 'E' number code and enables you to understand the lists of additives that appear on the packs of the food you buy, so that you can see exactly what has been added, where it comes from, why it has been added, what it does to the food and - if anything - what it might do to you. Here is all you need to know about: which additives are natural and which can have harmful effects; the reasons behind the use of preservatives, colours and flavourings in our foods; how to make informed choices when you shop; additives in wine and vitamin supplements; additives in meat; and guidelines on acceptable daily intake. The vital guide has led a consumer revolution, causing the food industry to re-think its policy on additives. No one who is concerned with the quality of the food they eat can afford to be without this invaluable reference book. Maurice Hanssen wins Glenfiddich Special Award for excellence in food and wine writing - "E for Additives". "has done more than any other publication to persuade the food industry that unnecessary over-processing is not in their interest or the interest of the public." - Derek Cooper, award judge, in "The Listener".

Review Text

  • By Mick on 20 April 2017

    Oringialy issued in the 80's,this is still the definitive handbook of everything you need to know about e numbers and food addatives.

    We started to notice some peculiar behaviour in our two year old son and were quickly able to correlate this to items he has recently eaten. Although we are not food fascists we had always been careful to ensure what our son consumed did not contain any E numbers with a cursory scan of the label whilst shopping. So why was he becoming hyperactive almost minutes within eating certain things. A conversation with some friends brought up this book into the discussion.This book became a revelation, as it helped us to identify hidden additives in food and described how children might behave if they had eaten food with these additives in it. We started referring to the book frequently, until we became familiar with what we should be looking out for. The result is that our son sleeps better, is more attentive, and interacts with other children a lot better.

    Some good information on sources of ingredients with E numbers. Unfortunately not all additives have E numbers so it doesn't get the full 5 stars, but certainly extremely useful for people in the food industry, especially if you're looking for known adverse effects of E numbers or you need to know which E numbers are natural or have no known adverse effects. Also includes some (but not all) corresponding 'CI' numbers for the colours (for those more familiar reading cosmetic INCIs).

    There Is a chapter in the book on Hyperactivity. Based on the work of American Doctor, Ben Feingold, there is given a list of additives to avoid. With a lot of label reading, less procesed foods and more home cooking, this method really works. The book also gives advice to asthmatics on on what E numbers to avoid.This is a brilliant and helpful text book and worth a permanent place for reference on everyones bookshelf.

    I first got this book years ago and gave it away to a charity shop when I moved house. Now I find I need the information it contains so I have brought it again. This one will stay on my bookshelves for keeps this time

    I have been looking for this book for a while. There used to be plenty around, but not as many available now. I would love to have an updated version, but this is all I found and the price was right.

    Had this book years ago when my son was young and got great hints and tips what are good and bad for you where additives are concerned. Would use this seller again.
