Review: Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss

Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us - Michael Moss, Scott Brick

This was a better book than Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser simply because this book addresses not only fast food but the food found in the grocery stores. I thought I knew enough to read the nutrition labels and ingredient lists, but the salt chapter showed how sodium shows up in our food through different chemicals. In the end, the author stresses how important it is for consumers, above the food company executives and the government, to be educated enough about the food we buy and eat so that we can make the right choices. Definitely will be shopping with new perspective. 5 stars.
