How Food is Made: An illustrated guide to how everyday food is produced (Paperback)
What if you knew how the hot dog you are eating was really made?
"How Food is Made...should be compulsory in every home. And school. And public library."
- John Lethlean
Food critic and columnist for Weekend Australian Magazine and Gourmet Traveller Magazine.
We buy and eat convenience food every day, yet how these foods are made is a mystery to almost everyone. For most, mass food production is an unspoken fact of life, a secret locked behind factory doors. But not anymore.
In this fascinating graphic book, you will learn how 60 common household foods are processed from raw ingredient to finished product, using clear language, drawings and detailed infographics.
How Food is Made will help you:
- see how processed foods in your home are manufactured
- understand the role of food preservatives and additives
- learn how to read food labels and ingredients lists more confidently
- identify unhealthy food for kids and make better food choices.
In How Food is Made, fine artist and illustrator Ayla Marika masterfully distils complex food science concepts and industry jargon into everyday language and eye-catching visuals. With hand-drawn infographics and comic-styled flow charts, she transforms even the most brain-achingly complicated food production processes into something that is not only easy to understand, but also entertaining.
Topics include chocolate, bacon, coffee, hot dogs, beer, chips, ketchup, sugar, margarine, marshmallows, chewing gum, chicken nuggets, gummy bears and many more of your favourites.
An invaluable resource for teachers, parents, teens... and anyone who has ever wondered 'how is food made, really?'
