Description-

  • From a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter at The New York Times comes the troubling story of the rise of the processed food industry -- and how it used salt, sugar, and fat to addict us.

    Salt
    Sugar Fat is a journey into the highly secretive world of the processed food giants, and the story of how they have deployed these three essential ingredients, over the past five decades, to dominate the North American diet. This is an eye-opening book that demonstrates how the makers of these foods have chosen, time and again, to double down on their efforts to increase consumption and profits, gambling that consumers and regulators would never figure them out. With meticulous original reporting, access to confidential files and memos, and numerous sources from deep inside the industry, it shows how these companies have pushed ahead, despite their own misgivings (never aired publicly). Salt Sugar Fat is the story of how we got here, and it will hold the food giants accountable for the social costs that keep climbing even as some of the industry's own say, "Enough already."

He is also the recipient of a Loeb Award and an Overseas Press Club citation.

He has been an adjunct professor at the Columbia School of Journalism and currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two sons.

Reviews-

  • New York Times "Moss [is] a dogged investigative reporter who neither scolds nor proselytizes. . . . Salt Sugar Fat continues Moss's hot streak of ace reportage. . . . Salt Sugar Fat is a remarkable accomplishment."
  • Boston Globe "An exactingly researched, deeply reported work of advocacy journalism."
  • Seattle Times "You will never look at a bag of Cheetos in quite the same way. . . . Moss [is] a graceful writer and a bulldog of a reporter. . ."
  • Newsday "Moss makes the digestion of hard facts easier with a keen sense of the telling anecdote and detail. . . . The book is leavened with colour and humour. . . . The science and history can be fun; the message is anything but. . . . Salt Sugar Fat is a vital document for anyone whose ignorance in the area is proportionate to his waistline."
  • Wall Street Journal "Vital reading for the discerning food consumer."
  • Publishers Weekly "[An] eye-popping exposé. . . . [and] an absorbing insiders' view of the food industry. . . . Moss's vivid reportage remains alive to the pleasures of junk – 'the heated fat swims over the tongue to send signals of joy to the brain' – while shrewdly analyzing the manipulative profiteering behind them. The result is a mouth-watering, gut-wrenching look at the food we hate to love."
