      It simply means something has been added on to improve something else or increase nutritional value of a product.

      Functions of additives are :

      1. To replace nutrients lost during processing,

      2. Increase nutritional value.

      3. Improves the sales and meet consumer demands.

      Think of addition as something good! I hope this helps, I'm not great with explaining though :)
