We would like to bring to your attention an article written by Heidi Stevens entitled, "Devils in disguise," which appeared in the Daily Press Saturday, April 10, 2010 Tribune Newspapers edition. In the article, Ms. Stevens states, "Some products seem healthful, but check the labels to be sure." She continues on to identify various issues that arise with labeling. In particular, she uses "chunky applesauce" as an example of a product that consumers are lured into purchasing because it has a low price and long shelf-life. She points out very clearly that this low price and long shelf-life are attributed to a "nutritionally vacant mush" which is flavored with "high fructose corn syrup".

Mrs. Bryant's Orchard Fresh Gourmet apple sauces are all natural, providing natural sources of calcium, magnesium, iron and fiber as well as vitamins C and K. We are able to achieve this because we cook our apples and fruits unpeeled so peels from the apples and the fruits remain in the sauce. Mrs. Bryant's apple sauces have only 3-5 ingredients, depending on the fruit blend. All of these ingredients are all natural, with no preservatives, no additives, and no sugar substitutes. We maintain this practice throughout our entire product line.

When you read the labels of our products, you will see that they are simple, clearly understood, and all of the ingredients are all natural or organic. We strive to make healthy, tasty, all natural wholesome food products that everyone can feel confident eating and for everyone to enjoy.

Ms. Stevens also gives examples of many other foods that appear to be healthy but, upon reading the label, are not. Examples included: V8, organic granola, honey roasted turkey breast, peach yogurt, baby Brussels sprouts and butter sauce, and organic ranch dressing.
