Industry experts and food researchers explain that things aren’t always as straightforward as they might appear – whether it’s healthy ranges that aren’t that healthy, or foodstuffs whose ingredients aren’t quite what they say on the tin. If you are what you eat, then these days it’s essential to know what’s in your food in the first place.

We’ll reveal exactly what goes into bargain bangers, the potential dangers from eating organic chicken, and why a visit to the dentist might be in order if you overindulge in getting your 5-a-day. But it’s not all bad news ... alongside the possible dietary side-effects of vomiting and diarrhoea, bacterial infection and increased risk of brittle bones that come from some of our favourite grub, it turns out that tomato ketchup might actually be quite good for you.
