We understand that many people have gluten allergies or sensitivies. That is why if we use the word “gluten free” on our product, there is no gluten in the product.
We will always call out on our product labels if wheat, rye or barley are used in a product.
This is a great question.
In order for a product to carry an organic claim, the production process must be certified from start to finish through a yearly audit. This ensures that all of the criteria of the USDA Organic Regulations are met.
Here are a few ways to help distinguish between the different labels:
- Organic: Animals must be fed organic grains and USDA Organic Regulations are followed
- Natural: Products are minimally processed, no artificial ingredients
MSG (monosodium glutamate) is a white crystalline salt compound used as a flavor enhancer in foods.
Absolutely. All of the products Hormel Foods manufactures that contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) are clearly labeled, as required by law.
Please know that MSG is not allowed to be listed under the broader heading of “flavorings” or “spice extracts” so it will never be disguised as such. Rather it will always be clearly listed as MSG.
