Food additives like carrageenan, lecithin, modified food starches and the like are a source of confusion. Even some commonly used ingredients we use in our home kitchens can become shrouded in misleading health claims and warnings. In this workshop, we will look at the history of some of these ingredients, review their basic functions, and compare their use in commercial food production to our own home food prep.
Please note the event location: Roxbury Room of the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship.
