Chemicals in food play an important role in food production and preservation. Food additives can, for example, prolong the shelf life of foods or can make food more attractive, such as colours. Flavourings are used to make food tastier. Also, can be used in food products as sweetener, additives, minerals, acidulants, gums, emulsifiers, flavor enhancers, milk protein, preservatives, phosphates and pectins. Other chemicals can be used to fight diseases in farm animals or crops.
