Question: Are your "natural flavors" really natural?
Answer: A lot of so-called "natural flavors" are anything but. However, the ones we use are made from the essences of vegetables and other plants combined with a tiny amount of alcohol or vegetable glycerine. They are also free from GMOs, artificial preservatives, top allergens (wheat and gluten, tree nuts and peanuts, soy, dairy, eggs, fish and shellfish, sesame) and propylene glycol (PG) a potentially dangerous chemical hidden in many "natural flavors." We pay more for flavorings that are PG-free and non-GMO. But it's worth it.
