The information is good, but inconsistent. Information includes what the ingredients are, where they come from/how they are manufactured, and why they are added to foods (thickeners, sweeteners, color, etc)... but not every entry includes all of this information.
My biggest gripe is that the book is not exclusively in alphabetical order, which is frustrating when you're looking up an ingredient. There is no alphabetical index, so when you want to see if the book has a particular ingredient.. you basically need to read through each ingredient in the Table of Contents to see if it is included in the book.
I like to keep the book like a dictionary.. not something you read front to back. I like to pull it out whenever I come across an ingredient I am unfamiliar with.. although 75 ingredients sure is not many compare to the 1000s of additives they put in our food! I would be interested in a more complete book in the future.
