I have just finished reading this book, Swallow This, which is all about our food. Any food you buy in a packet - milk, bread, processed food - it reveals things about how they are processed that you probably did not know.
For example, there are a lot of chemicals used in the processing of ingredients which never make their way onto your list of ingredients, but still might be present.
It reinforced the fact that the whole processed food industry is just another industry based on profit. If they can make something cheaper using an inferior ingredient then they will.
And forget that picture you have in your mind of people hand making your processed curry in a big vat. People do not come anywhere near your food. It is ingredients from around the world, already prepared, thrown together by a machine.
Read the book. You should know what processing happens to your food. If you eat packet food you might even give it up after reading!
If you are in the UK this is in the Overdrive library system so you can borrow and read online, for free.
