    • Food

Welcome back to another episode of the Year of Plenty Podcast!



In this episode I talk about the number one reason why you should be reading ingredient lists before buying foods! There are thousands of food additives that have found their way into our food supply without pre-market approval. Listen to this episode to find out how a loophole is making it easy for food manufacturers to introduce new food additives without much regulatory resistance.
