1The Kemin Foods, L.C. definition of a “natural” ingredient is an ingredient with the identical molecular structure and characteristics as found in nature. The ingredient is derived solely from a plant, animal or mined source, either in an unprocessed state or having been subject to moderate processing (physical processing, heating processing, purification, hydrolysis, extraction, drying). The ingredient does not contain any additives, except in amounts that might occur unavoidably during good manufacturing practices or good farming practices as applicable.
