Food Unwrapped by Daniel Tapper

Have you ever wondered why tiger prawns are so large? Or what 'formed ham' really is? Or even what, exactly, goes into a seafood stick? Food Unwrapped is the hit Channel 4 television series that gives us the information we really want to know about the food we consume every day, such as: where the wax on lemons comes from; how the caffeine is removed from decaffeinated coffee and whether there are actually any strawberries in strawberry flavouring. This entertaining, accessible book is packed with fascinating facts and vital information about what really happens to our food on its journey to the supermarket shelf. Whether you want to make more informed choices about what you eat or whether you simply want to know more about the food industry, Food Unwrapped will answer all your burning questions.
