Where does food come from? How is it made?

Easy. You know the answer already, donít you? Food comes from farms Ė right?

Wrong!

weird ingredientsItís true that most food comes from farms in the first place, but most of the stuff people eat today has been processed so much in factories that the only way you can know whatís in it is by looking at the list of ingredientsInformationIngredientsThat means what the food is made of. Many foods have a dozen or more ingredients in them, often things you'd never guess were there.. And if you do that, you may get a shock because you wonít know what half the things are.



What do you make of these, for example?
  • butylated hydroxytoluene (in some chips, salted peanuts, breakfast cereals and many other things)
  • calcium disodium ethylene diamine tetra acetate (in salad dressings and some drinks)
  • sodium L-ascorbate (a form of vitamin C)

Scary sounding names, and some of these additives may be harmful.

Raw unprocessed food comes from farming.

It also comes from fishing. Everything else is processed.
