The Extraordinary Science of Junk Food, an excerpt from an upcoming book by Michael Moss, is a disturbing peek into the world of processed food engineering, and the lengths the food industry has gone to in order to keep people buying and eating foods they know they really shouldn’t be eating.
I first heard a bit about this years ago in a book I did not finish reading, “The End of Overeating”, by David Kessler. But Michael Moss seems to have something more exposé-like here, and I look forward to the release this month of “Sugar Salt Fat: How The Food Giants Hooked Us”
Meanwhile, I highly recommend the NYT Magazine article. You may not want to read it with a bag of chips or a soda at your side.
See you soon.
