This book is a comprehensive resource for navigating the oft-confusing language used on food labels … definitely useful if you've ever wondered about the difference between cage-free or free-range eggs, what types of seafood are highest in mercury, or whether you should be concerned about artificial hormones in animal products (hint: yes for red meat and dairy, no for chicken). Stewart sorts through the hype and deciphers which claims are worth the associated extra cost and which are just market ...more

Standard, conventional. was nice to clear up labeling comprehension but when she preaches nutrition and health I was not impressed. It has been widely recognized that the governments food recommendations are not in touch with the latest research- why this author relies heavily on them, I do not know.

this book is great. Its about how to really figure out whats in the food we buy. I got it for free from Annies, www.annies.com, if you have not tried their mac and cheese, you need to. Its good stuff, the cheddar bunnies are good too. I got it for free with 2 box tops :), very cool! This book was written by a woman who lives in Longmont Co I think, and contributes to lots of magazines and newspapers. So far its a really good read, I am learning a lot.

What an incredible resource! KLS tells great backstories and gives all of the label information straightforward without being too preachy. Everyone should have this on hand to be able to reference and help make smart, ethical and healthy choices at the grocery store. It may be a little outdated at this point, but still provides some very good information to build a foundation.

This book had a lot of good information and was well laid out and easy to follow. I learned some basic things about labeling and what it actually means on different food packages. This book was written 6 years ago so some of the information may not be valid anymore as would be expected.
Stephy
It is a pretty informative book, but it can also be a little dry in spots. I think that I learned some stuff, but I'm not sure that it was still relevant. Some of what she wrote about is a little out of date and might not be as important to know about as what is more relevant and timely.
Jen
Really interesting book about what we eat, and what all those labels mean. It's sort of a reference book, but can be read straight through (as I'm doing). It'll change the way I shop, that's for sure.

I interviewed the author for Figure magazine.
