Food safety is the concept that food will not cause harm to the consumer when prepared and/or eaten according to its intended use. In Australia we rely on food safety standards to protect us from foodborne illness and food poisoning caused by poor handling, contamination, storage and temperature issues. Who is responsible for food safety in Australia? What can we do ourselves as cooks and consumers to minimise exposure to food poisoning? This book is a comprehensive guide featuring food safety tips on handling, hygiene and contamination. The book also explains symptoms, causes and labelling information in relation to food allergies, additives and intolerances. You are what you eat – ensure you eat food in the knowledge it is safe.
