Food additive

Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavor, enhance taste, or improve appearance and texture. Common additives include preservatives, sweeteners, emulsifiers, and colorants. They help extend shelf life, maintain food quality, and ensure product safety. However, regulatory bodies like the FDA closely monitor their use to safeguard public health and well-being.
