New Book Paints A Disturbing Picture Of The Food Processing Industry

April 9, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The global obesity epidemic proceeds apace, as people continue to consume salty, fatty and sugary processed foods. This is occurring despite the recent efforts of food writers doggedly exposing the truth about big food companies and the products they sell. The latest to weigh in on the subject is former New York Times reporter Melanie Warner, who describes in “Pandora’s Lunchbox” how food is manipulated along with credulous consumers. Reviewer Mark Bittman says the manipulation is “downright absurd”. Breakfast cereal, for example – touted as a “wholesome, nutritious way to start the day” – has to be enhanced with vitamins and minerals because the extrusion and toasting process "destroys many nutrients, as well as fiber”.
