Traces the author's pop-science investigation into the sources and manufacture of processed food ingredients, in an account that uses the Twinkie label as a guide and reveals the unexpected ways in which chemicals and other non-food raw materials are turned into common brand consumables.

About the Author:

Steve Ettlinger, author of six books, has long been fascinated with everyday consumer products, from hardware to beer.

From AudioFile:

Its the quintessential snack treat, the subject of myth and legal proceedings. The Twinkie stands for all that is right and, perhaps, wrong with American processed food. The author examines each of the ingredients of the Twinkie, starting from the most common all the way to the unlisted less than 1 percent additives, such as color. He also examines where each ingredient comes from. Its a delicious lesson in organic chemistry, world trade, and gastronomic history. Mark Lund narrates with enthusiasm. He warms to the subject, and his tone engages listeners. He could have rendered the book as stale as a Twinkie past its sell-by date. Instead, like his topic, he is bouncy and fresh.
