The definitions of food additives vary from country to country. The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Joint Food Rules Committee define it as follows: Food additives are non-nutritive substances that are consciously added to foods in small amounts to improve the appearance, flavor and texture or storage properties of the food. Common food additives include colorants, sweeteners, preservative, antioxidants, etc. Although food additives can improve the color, aroma, taste and other qualities of foods, there are some problems with food additives, such as unknown sources or improper materials, and the most prone problem is abuse.
