** The Dorito Effect by Mark Schatzker


It may be a tiny bit uncomfortable to eat processed food after reading The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor, which shows how the food industry manipulates flavor to make us eat anything as long as it tastes like something else… Happily the author (mostly) stays out of rant mode and instead gives us lively retellings of experiments of all sorts, including some that follow sheep grazing in Colorado (they are good at selecting the very foods that tame their parasites, it turns out). Fortunately, the solution is simple: seek out real food, and although the author indulges in $405 shipping fees for tomatoes, needs not be quite that extravagant!
