(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.
