Learning to Read the Labels

  1. To begin with, anyone who wants to avoid E-numbers will have to become an expert at reading food labels. The ingredients list on the packaging gives a good insight into what exactly is in our foods and drinks. As mentioned a little earlier, you should be aware that some manufacturers prefer the chemical names over the abbreviated E numbers.
