Food Additives

Food additives are those that are added to the food to maintain as well as improve the taste, texture, shelf-life, safety, and freshness of the foods. Food additives can be either naturally derived from plants and animal sources or synthetic. It may include sequestering agents, acidity regulators, chelating agents, emulsifiers, stabilizers, sweeteners, colorants, and preservatives. Preservatives are used to prevent or delay bacterial and fungal growth in foods. These additives delay spoilage of food or extend the shelf life of the finished product. The amount of the additives to be used in food is regulated and specified by the government because the increased amount of some of the additives could be harmful to the body. E-numbers are given to all the additives to administer them and to educate the customers. Government authorities monitor and ensure that food additives in food and drinks produced in their countries adhere to the permitted uses, conditions, and legislation.
