Ingredients Used by Simply Organic

  • ACACIA GUM: (also known as GUM ARABIC): This natural ingredient is made from the hardened sap of an acacia tree and helps to bind ingredients as well as provides a source of fiber.
  • CORN SYRUP SOLIDS: Corn syrup solids should not be confused with high fructose corn syrup.  Corn syrup solids are made from dextrose (3/4 as sweet as sucrose (cane or beet) sugar.  Corn syrup solids are a powder manufactured from corn syrup liquid through a process that removes 97% of the water from the liquid.
  • EVAPORATED CANE JUICE SYRUP: This minimally processed sugar comes from cane juice and retains a subtle sweet taste from the cane. The product is amber-colored.
  • GLYCERIN: This colorless liquid helps ingredients of different water content mesh. Simply Organic’s glycerin is derived from plant, not animal, sources.
  • LACTIC ACID: This natural compound has ingredients which are produced by a fermentation process using cornstarch or beet sugar. Our product is produced by fermentation from sugar and does not contain allergens, so it’s okay for vegan diets.
  • MALTODEXTRIN: This additive is produced from starch and is usually in the form of a creamy-white powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible and might be either moderately sweet or flavorless.
  • MONOCALCIUM PHOSPHATE: Normal and essential minerals for the body that work as natural leavening agents helping make baked goods light and fluffy.
  • NON-IRRADIATED SPICES: Unless specifically stated as "non-irradiated," spices undergo a process of ionizing radiation to increase shelf life and kill bacteria. While this may sound good, we believe using steam to eliminate dangerous microorganism is a better way to ensure organic herbs, spices and botanicals are safe to eat.
  • ORGANIC DUTCH COCOA (processed with Alkali): Cocoa is processed with Alkali (or as more commonly known – baking soda), to ensure powdered cocoa flows smoothly without clumping.
  • SILICON DIOXIDE: This naturally occurring mineral is used to keep powdered foods flowing smoothly without clumping.
  • SUCANAT (Dehydrated Cane Juice): A minimally processed sugar, these amber-colored granules retain a slight golden color and a subtle taste from the original cane juice.
  • TAMARI POWDER: Tamari sauce is a gluten-free version of soy sauce.  It is made with 100% soybeans giving it a richer flavor than regular soy sauce.  It is mixed with maltodextrin and salt so that it can be dried and used in a powder form.
  • WHEY POWDER: This powder is created by refining and drying liquid whey – in its natural form.
  • XANTHAN GUM: Naturally occurring plant based material used as a thickening agent in dip and dressing mixes.

Ingredients NOT Used by Simply Organic

  • ASPARTAME: This artificial sweetener is 180 times sweeter than real sugar and can be found in many processed foods.
  • BLEACHED FLOUR: This type of baking flour loses many of its original whole-grain nutrients due to a bleaching process which creates the white colored flour.
  • DISODIUM GUANYLATE (GMP): This synthetic flavor enhancer is derived from
    corn protein used to intensify the impact of flavors; could contain GMOs.
  • DISODIUM INOSINATE (IMP): This synthetic flavor enhancer is derived from
    corn protein used to intensify the impact of flavors; could contain GMOs.
  • GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISM (GMO’s): is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMO technology in the food industry refers to the use of patent-protected food crops that are resistant to commercial herbicides or is able to produce pesticidal proteins from within the plant.
  • HIGH FRUTOSE CORN SYRUP: This sugar is made from corn syrup through an
    enzymatic action that converts dextrose sugar into fructose sugar. HFCS is
    sweeter than corn syrup, which is why you find it in processed food.
  • HYDROLYZED PROTEINS: Proteins (often corn or soy) that have been broken down by acids or enzymes into amino acids and used as a flavor enhancer to intensify flavor impact; could contain GMOs.
  • HYDROGENATED OILS: Hydrogenation is a chemical process that results in unsaturated, liquid oil becoming solid. This process can lead to the formation of trans fatty acids.
  • MODIFIED FOOD/CORN STARCH: A carbohydrate, usually obtained from corn, wheat, potato or rice that undergoes a chemical or physical modification to change its gelling properties. The starch is used as a thickener and bulking agent; could contain GMOs.
  • MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (MSG): A synthetic flavor enhancer derived from corn protein used to intensify the impact of flavors; could contain GMOs.
  • PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED OIL: This oil has been partially hardened through chemical means and contributes trans fats to foods.
  • SUCRALOSE: This artificial sweetener is 600 times sweeter than real sugar.
