Language and food are infinitely connected. While specific topics have evolved over time, communication around food growth, cooking, and eating is certain. An influential part of this language occurs between contemporary food producers and consumers. Edible products and the nutritional information paired with them should be congruent. This, however, is where the food industry intervenes. Words are manipulated to sell food products through a complicated set of rules and suggestions.

This book begins a discussion about how food information shared with the public is worded, regulated, and displayed. Includes three interviews with a community garden organizer, a dietician, and a marketing professor. Phrases from the artist are dispersed, set back behind vellum. A bibliography and index are included.
