A pop-science journey into the surprising ingredients found in most common packaged foods Like most Americans, Steve Ettlinger eats processed foods. And, like most consumers, he didn't have a clue as to what most of the ingredients on the labels mean. So when his young daughter asked, Daddy, what's polysorbate 60?, he was at a loss and determined to find out. From the phosphate mines in Idaho to the oil fields in China to the Hostess factories and their practices, Twinkie, Deconstructed demystifies some of the most common processed food ingredients, where they come from, how they are made, how they are used, and why. Beginning at the source (hint: they're often more closely linked to rock and petroleum than any of the four food groups), we follow each Twinkie ingredient through the process of being crushed, baked, fermented, refined, and/or reacted into a totally unrecognizable goo or powder, all for the sake of creating a simple snack cake. An insightful exploration of the modern food industry, if you've ever wondered what you're eating when you consume foods containing mono- and diglycerides or calcium sulfate (the latter a food-grade equivalent of plaster of paris), this book is for you. Consequently, as Hostess plans to permanently close its doors in 2012, this book will provide a relevant guide into the practices of one of the biggest companies of all time.

Recognize, identify, and eliminate the most harmful ingredients from your diet you never knew you consumed every day! These days, the food on our tables is a far cry from what our grandparents ate. While it may look and taste the same and is often marketed under familiar brand names, our food has slowly but surely morphed into something entirely different—and a lot less benign. Ever wondered how bread manages to stay “fresh” on store shelves for so long? How do brightly colored cereals get those vibrant hues? Are artificial sweeteners really a healthy substitute for sugar? Whether you’re an experienced label reader or just starting to question what’s on your plate, Badditives! helps you cut through the fog of information overload. With current, updated research, Badditives! identifies thirteen of the most worrisome ingredients you might be eating and drinking every day. Learn about: • The commonly used flavor enhancers you should avoid at all costs • Two synthetic sweeteners that are wreaking havoc on the health of Americans in ways ordinary sugar does not • Artificial colors and preservatives in your child’s diet and how they have been linked directly to ADHD • The “hidden” ingredients in most processed foods that were declared safe to consume without ever really being researched • The hazardous industrial waste product that’s in your food and beverages • The toxic metal found in processed foods that has been linked to Alzheimer’s • The invisible meat and seafood ingredient that’s more dangerous than “Pink Slime” In a toxic world, educate yourself, change what you and your family eat, and avoid these poisons that are the known causes of our most prevalent health problems.

Why is eating food in its natural state, unprocessed and unrefined, so vital to the maintenance of good health? What is lacking in our modern diet that makes us so susceptible to degenerative disease? What natural elements in food may play a key role in unlocking the secrets of life extension? These fascinating questions, and many more, are answered in Enzyme Nutrition. Written by one of America’s pioneering biochemists and nutrition researchers, Dr. Edward Howell, Enzyme Nutrition presents the most vital nutritional discovery since that of vitamins and minerals—food enzymes. Our digestive organs produce some enzymes internally, however food enzymes are necessary for optimal health and must come from uncooked foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, raw sprouted grains, unpasteurized dairy products, and food enzyme supplements. Enzyme Nutrition represents more than fifty years of research and experimentation by Dr. Howell. He shows us how to conserve our enzymes and maintain internal balance. As the body regains its strength and vigor, its capacity to maintain its normal weight, fight disease, and heal itself is enhanced.
