What Are All Those Weird Ingredients In Your Food?

Last weekend was the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo in the suburbs of Chicago.  We had over 4,250 people attend the event and I can’t even begin to offer enough THANK YOUS to everyone that helped out over the course of the weekend.  As a follow-up to the event, Gluten Free Gigi offered a recap of the Expo and the Nourished Food Blogger Conference that occurred last Friday.  My favorite part of her write-up was a summary of all the crazy things in our food.

Gigi gave a great presentation at the Expo and hopefully she will be back at our Dallas Expo on September 8-9 at the Westin Park Central.  In the meantime, if you want to know more about food additives such as Silica, Maltodextrin, Disodium Phosphate, etc…  click here to read her article.  Scroll down to the bottom to get to this information.  She talks about this topic in a way that a “normal person” can understand – not just a food scientist.

Thanks Gigi for making a difficult topic so easy to understand and for sharing your expertise at the Expo!
