Conclusion of Food Additives

Although food additives have been in use since the Neanderthal era, they have gained huge popularity and utility in the modern times. The scientific use of readymade mixes, flavoring and coloring agents and essences have helped working women in particular, to keep up with the demands on their time. Additives also help in the manufacture of convenience foods that can be rapidly and easily prepared.

‘We are what we eat’ the saying goes. The wide array of delectable delicacies that have been made possible due to food additives, have been widely misused by the modern world leading to an increase in ‘food junkies’ and added to the burden of lifestyle diseases. Hence, moderation must be the key word and these foods, which have been developed for ‘convenience’, must be wisely and justly used.
