Do you know your MCTs from your LCTs? How about sterols from stanols? Or omega-3 vs omega-6? If you find yourself confused by food labels and ads for healthy eating, Catherine Saxelby’s comprehensive guide My Nutritionary will help you cut through the jargon and put the power of her nutrition know-how in your hands.

We live in a world with constantly changing nutrition advice – eat more of this, avoid that – but increasingly this information uses scientific terminology that few of us are familiar with. When everyone from diet gurus to wellness bloggers to celebrity chefs and even your doctor has suggestions for healthy eating, translating the latest nutrition jargon into useful terms can be overwhelming.

What’s the difference between glucose and dextrose? Or probiotics and prebiotics? Why do we need calcium? What additive is number 330? How safe is acesulfame K? And what the heck are trans fatty acids?

In My Nutritionary, Catherine answers these questions and more in plain English, helping you navigate through the jargon and hype so you know what you’re eating. If you want to know exactly what you’re putting in your shopping trolley – or on the dinner table, this is the guide for you.

We live on Poison Planet. I am sure this is the reason so many people suffer food intolerances, and a multiplicity of vague, hard-to-diagnose health problems. For them it is essential, perhaps even a matter of life and death, to avoid ingredients that worsen their problem.
Even those of us lucky enough to have cast iron stomachs need to be aware of what’s in our food.
Read the label, and be confronted with what reads like a secret code. Catherine Saxelby’s book, “My Nutritionary,” is the necessary resource. As she says in her introduction, this is not a book to read, any more than a dictionary is. It’s a cross-referenced A to Z of food additives and components. Given modern technology, you could have it on your phone while shopping, and it will help you make food purchasing decisions in a few seconds.
