Wonder Foods: New book by Lisa Haushofer

Lisa Haushofer's new book "Wonder Foods. The Science and Commerce of Nutrition" just appeared in late 2022 at the University of California Press. She traces the history of modern food between 1850 and 1950 by looking at evolving nutrition sciences and the commercialization of new products. Revealing a powerful logic of exploitation and economization that undergirded colonial and industrial food projects, she shows the backdrop of how we think about food today.
