Symphony Chips Ingredients
Below is a list of ingredients from all the flavors that I could find.
- Balsamic Vinegar Powder
- Brown Sugar
- Calcium Silicate.
- Citric Acid
- Corn Oil
- Cottonseed Oil
- Ground Mustard
- Natural Flavors
- Natural Flavors (Hickory Smoke)
- Silicon Dioxide
- Spices (Including Paprika)
- Sunflower Oil
As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
Brown sugar vegan-friendly, but some of sugar that you might find in snacks and candy might not be. A popular sugar is refined cane sugar and in the refining process the sugar is bleached to fit the products better. This is where it can become a problem for vegans.
A common practice to bleach cane sugar is to use bone char from dead cows. This would make the sugar non-vegan and a lot of vegans tends to stay away from cane sugar because of this.
This ingredient is a tricky ingredient for many vegans, because a lot of companies uses natural flavors to add ingredients without needing to disclose them on the label. So both ingredients derived from animals and plants can be put here.
