Oh, thanks for pointing me to it. I devoured "Fast Food Nation" (pun absolutely intended).

Well, guar gum isn't such bad stuff, but I'd have to question "solvent"....

There are definitely things that you should only ever consume fresh. Preferably having watched or - better - performed the preparation yourself.

richard: I just realized that this book may be a version of "Fast Food Nation" targeted at children and young adults (it says "Based on Fast Food Nation" on the cover).
