Show Notes

It's summertime!  We thought it would be a great time to rebroadcast some of our most downloaded episodes.  We hope you enjoy!

KEY WORDS: Additives, GRAS, Prior-Sanctioned Substances, Foods vs Supplements, Direct vs Indirect Additives, multi-Functional Ingredients, acrylamide, fortification vs enrichment
