Food additives play a vital role in today's intricate global food supply chain. They are essential for preserving the qualities and characteristics of food that consumers crave. These additives guarantee that food remains safe, nourishing, and enticing throughout the entire journey from "farm to fork." The usage of additives is subject to strict regulations, ensuring that they have a proven utility, are safe for consumption, and do not mislead the consumer.
