Twinkie, Deconstructed is the story of author Steve Ettlinger’s “journey to discover how the ingredients found in processed foods are grown, mined (yes, mined), and manipulated into what America eats.” Yummy. Most Americans eat processed foods every day, and sure those foods are delicious (Cheetos, anyone?) but have you ever taken a moment to consider what exactly makes that delightful day-glo orange Cheeto color? More to the point, what is Polysorbate 60? Why is bleach listed as an ingredient in Twinkies? In Twinkie, Deconstructed Ettlinger investigates the origins and uses of every ingredient listed on a Twinkie wrapper. You’ll be shocked, bewildered, and yes, grossed out, and you’ll definitely think twice the next time you walk past that vending machine in the break room, but you’ll also be the best-educated junk food junkie in town. Or you’ll just start living off broccoli. Eat-while-you-read: Twinkies—the homemade organic version (the recipe is included in the book).
