Additives & Seasonings Center

Anything in a food product other than its natural ingredients is considered an additive. Food additives also may help preserve the food or improve its appearance or texture. Some additives and seasonings have known health consequences (e.g., sodium). In addition, some people develop allergic reactions in response to common food additives, such as monosodium glutamate (MSG).
