Aussie author demystifies food processing with new book

An Australian illustrator and designer has produced a book about the manufacturing of processed foods for educators, children and parents — and anyone curious about food.

Created by Ayla Marika, the book — How Food is Made: An illustrated guide to how everyday food is produced — is designed to demystify how common processed foods are manufactured using plain language and step-by-step entertaining graphics.

Researched and compiled over two years, the informative book guides readers through the entire process of how popular processed foods such as sugar, coffee and chocolate are made, from raw ingredient to final packaged product.

Inspiration for the book came from Ayla Marika’s desire to educate her daughter and young people across the globe about food production, in an era when youths and adults alike are becoming disconnected from the origin of the food they eat.

The book is available from various online book retailers.
