Characters » Salt Sugar Fat How the Food Giants Hooked Us ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Every year the average American eats 33 pounds of cheese and 70 pounds of sugar They ingest 8500 milligrams of salt a day double the recommended amount almost none of which comes from salt shakers It comes from processed food an industry that hauls in 1 trillion in annual sales In Salt Sugar Fat Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Michael Moss shows how this happened Featuring examples from some of the. Probably like most of you I thought Michael Moss s Salt Sugar Fat would be about how these ingredients are not good for us how to eliminate them from our diets and perhaps a few recipes to get us started I was wrong This book is far fascinating than that It s a well written in depth look at the food industry and how the products we all know came into being and developed over the years It names companies like Kellogg s Kraft Campbell s and the soft drink giants that produce Coke Pepsi and even Dr Pepper as well as otherDid you know that the amount of sugar and cheese that we each eat today has tripled since 1970 No wonder there is an obesity epidemic today I was very interested in the story of how the US Government was responsible for the increase in cheese production how the excess was stored and how it finally made it s way into a lot of everyday foods as time went by There are stories about the science behind product development and how advertising and product placement get our attention and get us to buy One thing became very clear and that is that processed foods could not exist without salt sugar or fat Even some of the people who used to work for these companies now know that in order to avoid these substances they also have to avoid the very foods those companies produce While I do a lot of my own baking and seldom buy convenience foods I m starting to think the cans and boxes that are currently in my house may be greatly reduced in the future I will likely make of my own soups and salad dressings and maybe even bread in the futureI think this is an important piece of literature that will withstand the test of time and will likely be a great reference book about the food industry for many years to come It s a thick book over 400 pages but not difficult reading It will be available for purchase March 12 2013 Look for it when the time comes I think everyone should read it

Characters » Salt Sugar Fat How the Food Giants Hooked Us ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub By manipulating its chemical structure He unearths marketing techniues taken straight from tobacco company playbooks to redirect concerns about the health risks of products He talks to concerned executives who explain that they could never produce truly healthy alternatives to their products even if serious regulation became a reality Simply put the industry itself would cease to exist without salt sugar and fat. Where I got the book my local libraryFood is weird At least it is nowadays Humans like variety variety in food makes them eat Put science and industry at the service of variety and you getBe still my British heartThere are tens of thousands of different products in the average grocery store One thing I learned from this fascinating book is that a successful strategy to increase sales is by line extensions where for example you take a bestselling product like Oreos and come up with variations on the theme until you reach thisand then you realize you ve been keeping your researchers up at night for too longAnd because the food industry is big business and big business has shareholders to keep happy the food industry wants you to eat its food Lots of itGREED IS GOODYes my friend Wall Street wants you to be a greedy pig It WANTS you to eat the whole bag of chips because dagnammit you re supporting the economy It is the American Way to crave a FourthMeal A Giant Gulp is a patriotic gestureBut the trouble isThere s a price to pay Obesity and its first cousins heart attack and diabetes are roaring along at record levels And the food industry knows it But the food industry is first and foremost an industry responsible to its shareholders As Michael Moss says It is simply not in the nature of these companies to care about the consumer in an empathetic waySalt sugar and fat are the food industry s weapons in the war to sell food gain bigger market shares and keep the Wall Street analysts happy Moss goes into the science behind why the processed food you eat the you WANT to eat these foods are painstakingly engineered to be well as addictive as possible The addiction factor is supported by marketing campaigns that literally make your mouth water and by careful product placement overseen by regular visits from food company employeesYep the checkout lane That insidious piece of marketing we all accept as normalChances are that if you ve picked up this book you re already converted to the idea that processed food is bad for you As I am after years of weight gain and other symptoms blooming in middle age into terrible and socially awkward gastric attacks and asthma attacks as my body tries to expel that xanthan gum that snuck into my soup or the polysorbate 80 in the cream The last few years have been one long lesson about what I can and can t eat label reading and an increasing adoption of the clean eating ethosBut enough about me What will you find inside this book Well for one thing absorbing entertainment and thought provoking findings such as the very telling fact that the top executives in the food industry go out of their way to avoid eating the very foods they foist on the unsuspecting public in America but increasingly all over the world BECAUSE THEY RE UNHEALTHY Moss doesn t hesitate to name names in fact one of the most fascinating aspects of Salt Sugar Fat for me is the way he engages with the personalities behind the products He reminds us that the food industry isn t faceless these are people who earn a living persuading us to eat Not all of them There are renegades and prophets of doom those who remind their companies of the moment when forty or so states rose up against the cigarette industry on behalf of their health care systems Obesity costs money what the food companies gain the economy as a whole suffers because of rising health insurance costs and sick employeesThere is a lawsuit waiting to happen or as Moss speculates the solution may come in the form of government regulation And he concludes with an appeal to the consumer They may have salt sugar and fat on their side but we ultimately have the power to make choices After all we decide what to buy We decide how much to eatExcept that healthy food is an industry all its own Open up any magazine aimed at consumers who are trying to eat right and you ll find it full of ads for products made by the selfsame companies that bring you the 32oz soda and the candy bar Every time there s an eating trend the industry jumps all over it and produces a solution that s not a solution Low fat products that have sugar and salt to make them taste better without the fat Low sugar products that have fat and salt than the regular version Oh I could go on There are so many goodies to feast on in this book that I could talk about it all day Moss s journalistic style while not always as fluent as I d like is that of the educated man on the street and he appeals to a fairly well informed audience in his use of facts and figures and his incorporation of science If you re starting to wake up to the power of food in your life and want to gain a better understanding of the role of the food industry in our global economy and everyday existence you could do worse than to read this book
