Science in the Kitchen contributed to the broader movement in the late 19th century that sought to apply scientific knowledge to everyday life, including food and nutrition. It was part of a larger trend toward more systematic and scientific approaches to health and wellness.

Ella Eaton Kellogg (1853-1920) was an American dietitian known for her work on home economics and vegetarian cooking. In 1875, she visited the Battle Creek Sanitarium, and became interested in the subjects of sanitation and hygiene. A year later she enrolled in the Sanitarium School of Hygiene. Later on, she joined the editorial staff of Good Health magazine, and in 1879, married Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, superintendent of the Battle Creek Sanitarium.
She was prominently identified with the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU), in 1882 being appointed national superintendent of the Department of Hygiene. Three years later, she was appointed associate superintendent of the Social Purity department of the WCTU. Out of her experiences in the Social Purity work in the WCTU, grew a pamphlet, in 1890, entitled "Talks to Girls" which enjoyed an extended circulation. Kellogg was a charter member of the Michigan Woman's Press Association.
