Additives is a specialized skill that involves the use of various substances added to food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals or other products in order to improve their quality, appearance, taste, or shelf life. The role of an additives specialist is to study the composition, properties, and effects of these substances, and to find the most effective ways of incorporating them into products. This requires knowledge of chemistry, toxicology, and the regulations governing the use of additives in different industries. The use of additives is controversial because some people believe that they can have negative health effects, so it's important for additives specialists to stay up-to-date on the latest research and guidelines in order to ensure the safety of consumers.
