Overview Sannheten i glasset

Water, coffee, milk and soft drinks – we drink many litres in a year. But what are we really drinking? This is a convincing and well-written follow-up to Truths of the Table - What you are not told about your Food.

Niels Christian Geelmuyden is back with further revelations, this time about liquid food: water, milk, juice, soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer and wine.

He has probed the producers, the distributors and not least the official departments who are supposed to ensure that we avoid what is harmful to us. We trust the distributor's labelling and hope that the authorities are looking after us. Unfortunately, it isn't always like that.

This book gives us the real truth! Niels Christian Geelmuyden reveals the food industry's methods and the real content of raw materials. Now he knows how to find the genuine, natural drinks without cosmetic additions, rubbish and unhealthy additives; the ones that are produced with little environmental damage and good animal welfare.

He shares this knowledge with the reader of this well written, well documented and important book.

Overflowing with facts
Loaded with wide knowledge and driven by elegant style, the writer continues his thought-provoking project of enlightenment.
What Geelmuyden manages to reveal is that the sum of all the chemistry in our food and drinks are somewhat an experiment.
The book is filled with facts, but still easy readable and entertaining. For us consumers it is very valueable that a journalist, without any ties to the government or business interests, use the power of the freedom of speech about things that concern life and health for us all.

Reviews from Sannheten i glasset

Breddfull av opplysning

(...) en av landets mest erfarne, profesjonelle og, om du vil, høyst profane skribenter. Ladet med bred kunnskap og drevet av elegant stil fortsetter han sitt tankevekkende opplysningsprosjekt.

(...) det Geelmuyden får frem er at summen av all denne kjemien i mat og drikke utgjør noe av et eksperiment.

(...) Det blomstrer av vidd, spissformuleringer og finurlig bruk av ordtak. (...) en leservennlig og underholdende side ved en faktamettet bok. (...) For oss forbrukere er det verdifullt at en journalist, uten bindinger til hverken myndigheter eller næringsinteresser, bruker det frie ords makt om ting som angår liv og helse for oss alle.
Mette Hofsødegård, Aftenposten
