(B) "use . . . are" violates subject-verb agreement

(C) The additives aren't being used as food--they are being put into food. Also, this one has no verb.

(D) "their use to food" sounds like food is using them!

(E) is out because it starts with the adverbial modifier "by using them in food," which should be followed by something along the lines of "manufacturers are . . ." Instead, we see the pronoun "it," which has no clear antecedent.

(A) has the correct verb "is," and correctly states that the additives are used in food.
