Can I have Trader Joe's salsa Verde?


Recommended Posts

Thumbs up.



I am starting the program tomorrow. 


I am curious about Trader Joe's mild pico de gallo salsa. Ingredients are Tomatoes, Onion, Lemon Juice (Water, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Lemon Juice), Natural Flavor, Vinegar (for freshness) Jalapeño pepper, Salt, Cilantro, Garlic Powder.


The natural flavor and vinegar were seem to be have the potential to be classified as forbidden. 


Natural Flavor - According to Melissa's 09 April 2012 - 06:20 PM post ( http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/45-natural-flavors-added-to-food/ )

would seem to be allowed as long as this thinking has not been updated.  


Vinegar - Malt vinegar and vinegar with added sugar are off limits. Is there any way to know if either of these are used in salsa?


Thank you,

This is fine.  If you want to get really crazy you can send them a note and ask them about how they process the vinegar but that is not necessary.  If it was malt vinegar, they would have to specify.
