(both ends covered!) Manufacturers have responded to consumer pressure to purchase healthier products by roping us in with that dubious description, “natural.” Not only that, they use all sorts of catch phrases like, “Kettle Cooked” “As Nature Intended” “Gluten-Free” (on products that couldn't contain gluten if they tried) “Old Fashioned Goodness” even “Trusted Since 19_ _” (as if the original recipe were still being used, which it hardly ever is!).
