A regular theme on my blog over the past few years has been the abysmal quality of food, particularly where added water is concerned. This has seen me be accused of being either excessively picky, or “not cooking it properly”.
In the first instance, where food is concerned, one can never be too picky, and when it comes to cooking ability, I defer to nobody – I’ve been cooking since I was 12 and I’m bloody good!
So, to my critics, and to anyone who actually cares passionately, as I do, about the quality of the food they eat, I commend this article in today’s Guardian, which shines a light into the grubbier corners of the UK (and EU), food industry. The title and headline, while not exactly punchy (where’s the drama, Guardian?), are enough to scare the crap out of any sensible person:-
“Fake-food scandal revealed as tests show third of products mislabelled
Consumers are being sold drinks with banned flame-retardant additives, pork in beef, and fake cheese, laboratory tests show.”
Have a nice day…
