Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss
Copies of Salt Sugar Fat are available at VCU Libraries.
From Publishers Weekly:
"[An] eye-popping exposé... Moss’s vivid reportage remains alive to the pleasures of junk—‘the heated fat swims over the tongue to send signals of joy to the brain’—while shrewdly analyzing the manipulative profiteering behind them. The result is a mouth-watering, gut-wrenching look at the food we hate to love."
