Food Additives

Food additives have been used by mankind for centuries. Salt, sugar and vinegar were among the first and used to preserve foods. In the past 30 years, however, with the advent of processed foods, there has been a massive explosion in the chemical adulteration of foods with additives.

Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavour or improve its taste and appearance. Different types of food additives are:

- acids

Food acids are added to make flavors "sharper", and also act as preservatives and antioxidants. Common food acids include vinegar, citric acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, fumaric acid, lactic acid.

- anticaking agents

Anticaking agents keep powders such as milk powder from caking or sticking. - antifoaming agents antifoaming agents reduce or prevent foaming in foods. - antioxidants antioxidants such as vitamin c act as preservatives by inhibiting the effects of oxygen on food, and can be beneficial to health. - bulking agents bulking agents such as starch are food additives that increase the bulk of a food without affecting its nutritional value. - food coloring colorings are added to food to replace colors lost during preparation, or to make food look more attractive. - color retention agents in contrast to colorings, color retention agents are used to preserve a food's existing color. - emulsifiers emulsifiers allow water and oils to remain mixed together in an emulsion, as in mayonnaise, ice cream, and homogenized milk. - flavors flavors are food additives that give food a particular taste or smell, and may be derived from natural ingredients or created artificially. - flavor enhancers flavor enhancers enhance a food's existing flavors. These food additives may be extracted from natural sources or created artificially. - preservatives preservatives are food additives prevent or inhibit spoilage of food due to fungi, bacteria and other microorganisms. - stabilizers stabilizers give foods a firmer texture. While they are not true emulsifiers, they help to stabilize emulsions. - sweeteners sweeteners are added to foods for flavoring. Sweeteners other than sugar are added to keep the food energy (calories) low
