Ensuring the safety of food products and maintaining the confidence of consumers–is the single most important goal of our industry. The long history of producing safe, quality and affordable food has been supported by the industry’s use of ingredients added during production. These substances are used for functions such as taste, texture, flavor, color, consistency, and shelf life preservation and are commonly referred to as food–additives.
