This book allows you to see the motives behind these food companies in ways you would never imagine. I came away from this book seeing processed food for what it really is (without all the glitz and glamor). A necessity for anyone interested in the food that we eat.
This is a very informative book, that exposes the food industries for what they are - money grubbers. Some of the information in this book I was aware of, but I learned quite a bit too! The big food companies do not care about your nutrition, they only care about making their food cheaply and just addicting enough to make you keep eating.
I am man who likes to learn either by reading or listening. There are so many good books it is hard to pick just one. I love this site!
this book was full of excellent information and wonderful anecdotes. it was very interesting and easy to listen to. I myself listened to it twice and the second time was better than the first. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know why they cannot stop eating something.
Great book! Well researched and highly recommended. Author interviews vast numbers of insiders in the food industry and come away with a complete view of processed food in the US
I would not only recommend it but suggest it.
Kept me very interested.
yes, very much.
the truth behind the shelves
I am totally honored to have listened to the book. I loved it so much I am buying the paperback and give it as gifts.
50 something female, not a bibliophile by any stretch of the imagination. Don't have time to sit. I love history and biographies.
I have known about marketing practices and chemicals in processed foods but I didn't realize how much the government influences food production. The connection from subsidizing cattle and dairy producers to hiding cheese in processed foods was interesting.
