MSM finally catching up with what is really going into our food & drinks

If you don’t want to know exactly what goes into your food, look away now.

A new book has broken down the ingredients of 25 foods and laid them out next to each other in series of striking pictures.

Photographer Dwight Eschliman and food writer Steve Ettlinger deconstructed foods like Twinkies, wholemeal bread and ketchup to show what they are really made up of.

Others they have broken down include Dr Pepper, Campbell’s chicken soup, Naked Green Machine smoothie and PowerBar energy bars.

In each case small piles of each ingredient are laid next to each other in rows and photographed from above – and the results can be quite surprising.
