Why it always pays to read the label

Have you ever noticed how long the list of ingredients is on the back of a packet? Do you know what any of them are or what they are doing to your body? Prepare to get grossed out as this ‘shockumentary’ exposes the horrific ingredients that are in the food we eat everyday: from crushed glass to otter anus and human faeces, processed food is turning your mouth into a sewer!

Brits buy more 'ultra-processed food' than any other nationality in Europe. More than half of the food they eat is made in a factory with industrial ingredients and additives invented by food technologists. This film gets to the bottom of what these ingredients are, why they are being added and, ultimately, what they could do to our bodies.
