Facts about Food Additives

Taste, texture, color, and freshness all play roles in the enjoyment of our food as well as in weight loss. These are the qualities that make eating a pursuit that goes well beyond simple nourishment. Our modern lifestyles have given rise to high food production, mouths to feed, and a greater demand for shelf-life. This, in turn, has given rise to food additives, which give us exactly what we want out of our food, but at what cost?


About Velma

Hi! My name is Valery Elmer (Velma) and I’m your host at WeightLoss.org. I've had my fair share of trying and sometimes succeeding in losing weight (and then occasionally going back to where I was before). I'm hoping that my experience and studies in biology and chemistry will propel this website to the level where it will help you get on the right track and reach your goals!

    Is there a way to download this poster and print it to use in my classroom?

    The easiest way would be right click on the image, download it and print it at home. If you don’t have a good printer for the job, you can sign up for an account at Office Depot and order a print that they’ll ship directly to your school. I’ve done that in the past and I was happy with the result but I’d bet it’s possible to find a better online printing service if you do the research.

    Also, when you order the print they usually ask whether you have a legal right to print the work. You have our permission!
