E For Additives
Picked up this book the other day: "E For Additivies". I'm a compulsive label reader so it's interesting to find out what all those E numbers are. Unfortunately, it's a bit old (1988) so it's probably missing information about the effects of some of them. I've discovered E numbers on some of the sweets we have that are banned in various countries - usually food colouring. I couldn't help but point out all this junk to R*. Maybe I'll only let her eat sweets where she can spell all the ingredients like Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (E464).
