The International Food Information Council has released a two-page guide which helps consumers understand common food additives and why they are added to certain foods.  The guide explains the reasons why additives are used in foods, explains what is meant by the term Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), and then lists common food additives and ingredients by their functional categories.

The resource is available for downlad at the IFIC web site at:
