ROLE OF FOOD ADDITIVESFood additives are used to enhance flavor, texture, shelf-life and nutritional properties of the foods we eat. Food additives are substances that are added to foods to serve specific technical purposes, and are grouped depending on the function they perform when added to foods, stabilisers, thickeners, gelling agents, anti-caking agents, glazing agents, packaging gases and propellants.Only substances that are not normally consumed as a food in itself and that are not normally used as a characteristic ingredient of food, qualify as additives.

FROZEN FOODS THENTwo thousand years ago, the ancestors of the Inca in the Andean mountains figured out how to freeze dry potatoes. They would freeze them overnight, then trample them to squeeze out left over moisture, then dry them in the sun. Over several days, the potatoes would be in a form that would preserve the nutritional value – if not the aesthetic appeal – of the original tuber.

FROZEN FOODS NOWFrozen food has revolutionized the way people are able to receive and store foods like fruit, vegetables, convenience foods and meats. Based on freezing techniques from arctic communities, meats and fish were frozen in ice to last through the winter and was adopted to prevent spoilage in the 1700s and 1800s in the United States. While freezing and packaging technology has changed through the years, frozen food as we know it today was invented and popularized in the 1920s and 1930s.

* I believe that this video from discover education is very helpful for information about nutrition. It talks about the foods that you need daily and what is not part of the food groups.

we both had food diet programs that helped people loose weight
