Colour in food

J.B. Hutchings,     The University of Leeds, UK

Abstract:

This chapter tells the story of food colour, how it evolved and how essential it is to our survival as human beings. Colour and appearance are powerful generators of expectations that may be commercially exploited for good or ill as powerful halo effects lead to ethical problems.
