I've got some questions about that ingredients list.
1. Where's the protein?
2. Should fatty acids be listed separately or come under "vegetable oils"?
3. What is E306? It's listed as "tocopherol", but is it a tocopherol-rich extract? Or is it alpha, beta, gamma, or delta tocopherol?
4. Should "linolic acid" be "linoleic acid"?
5. Should "potasium" be "potassium"?
6. To comply with the relevant regulations, the ingredients should be in descending order of weight. Now, I looked up the USDA database entry for raw apple with peel: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/show/ ... +with+skin
and ascorbic acid is listed at 4.6mg with riboflavin at 0.026mg. Yet riboflavin appears before ascorbic acid in the ingredients list. Why?
7. Hang on. Where's thiamine? There's 0.017mg in a raw apple. Why can't I see it on the ingredients list? Folate is mentioned and there's only 0.003mg of that in a raw apple. Other components such as B6 and vitamin K seem to be missing - a shame as pyridoxine and phylloquinone sound suitably chemically.
8. It seems the list is intended to demonstrate that 'chemicals' aren't nasty. Isn't oxalic acid a bit of a worry? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxalic_ac ... and_safetyThis post may be slightly tongue-in-cheek. Sometimes, it's fun to be pedantic. Well, for me anyway. Anyone who spots a mistake in my comments gets extra pedant points. And my thanks.
