Twinkies Deconstructed


Steve Ettlinger is like most Americans and eats processed foods.  When his daughter asked him what polysorbate 60 was, he decided it was time to find out.

Twinkie, Deconstructed: My Journey to Discover How the Ingredients Found in Processed Foods Are Grown, Mined (Yes, Mined), and Manipulated Into What America Eats was the result.

Steve takes you though the whole jungle of food ingredients that are added to processed foods, and explains why. As the title belies, he deconstructs the ingredients of the common Twinkie.

You too can find out what polysorbate 60 really is, when you read it on the label, and a whole host of other dubious looking things too.
