When Were Food Additives First Used?

Answer

It is hard to determine when food additives were first used. Back in the 1850's, there were things added to food that people were unaware of. The Federal Food and Drug Act in 1906 was the first major law governing what could and could not be added. The food label was required to state everything that was included in the food and outlawed such additives as formaldehyde and borax.
