The handbook includes direct additives, intentionally added to food to affect its quality, and indirect additives, those additives that might be expected to become part of a food as a result of production, processing, storage, or packaging. Additives are critical components of food preparation as they play important roles in increasing the flavor, texture, preservation, and value of food products as well as aiding in all aspects of food manufacture. Food regulations for the US, Europe (E numbers), and Japan are also included.
