Find out more about us

Action on Additives provides evidence-based information and resources about the use of colourings, sweeteners, flavourings, and other novel ingredients in the UK's food supply.  The composition, quality and safety of our foods, drinks and medicines impact on the health and well-being of the entire population, but are particularly important for pregnant women and children under the age of five.  Action on Additives is a project of First Steps Nutrition Trust which supports good nutrition from pre-conception to five years.
