"proprietary" "Natural Flavors" in Quaker Simple Harvest Instant Oatmeal
In my newspaper last weekend, I got a sample of Quaker's Simple Harvest Instant Oatmeal, "Maple Brown Sugar with Pecans."
The ingredients: WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED OATS, WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED WHEAT, ROLLED BARLEY, WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED RYE, SUGAR, PECANS, WHOLE FLAXSEED, OAT FLOUR, NATURAL FLAVORS, SALT, MOLASSES.
CONTAINS WHEAT AND PECAN INGREDIENTS.
Kosher Status: Kosher Pareve
I was concerned about the "natural flavors," but gave it the benefit of the doubt just that once and tried it (rationalization: It was free and was gonna be thrown out if I didn't try it!). It was good! So I contacted the company to find out if "natural flavors" included animal products. Here's their response:
The exact composition of our Natural Flavors in Simple Harvest is considered proprietary. However, it may be helpful for you to know that many Quaker Instant Oatmeal products are Kosher certified and will be labeled with the letter U enclosed in a circle.
As per Kosher Guidelines, this circled U will be followed by the letter M if they contain ingredients derived from meat or a letter D if derived from dairy.

Nooooooo, it does not help me to know that some of their products are kosher. In fact I know this one is kosher. And I don't care if the composition is proprietary, I have a right to know if it's vegan.
So my question is--- am I amiss in thinking that she didn't answer my question? To my understanding, even though it's kosher pareve, it may still contain animal products. No?
I hope it's safe. I'm kind of addicted to this stuff!
I hate the "natural flavors" label on the ingrediants list. I never know what that is. As a result, I just try not to buy anything that has it on their label. I just wish companies could be more straight forward with us.
Sometimes in life giving up is not the best option, some of us couldn't even take NO for an answer, I am one of such, I have visited so many forums and some of the people I met on such sites told me to forget about my wife or maybe I should just let go , I always believe in following my dreams and I believe that I can get whatever I want or be who I wanna be at any point in my life. Why am saying this? My wife left me 4 years ago he told me it is over between us i was sad when i had that for the first time but like I said I can always get whatever I want in life which was what I did, i ensure that I got him back home with me with the help of a great man call Dr Osauyi known as eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%4f%53%41%55%59%49%4c%4f%56%45%53%50%45%4c%4c%40%59%41%48%4f%4f%2e%43%4f%4d%22%3e%4f%53%41%55%59%49%4c%4f%56%45%53%50%45%4c%4c%40%59%41%48%4f%4f%2e%43%4f%4d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')) he cast a return spell for me now wife is back home with me and we are having a good life together again.it just too real to be real It highly unbelievable i never know this braking relationship gonna come to an end am so happy for what Dr Osauyi have just don for me for any one that is having same problem with me or any kinds of problem contact Dr Osauyi his the solution to all problem and he can be of help to you any time. his the best spell caster so far in the instant So Be the next to share your testimony to people on how Dr osauyi help you just like the way i did AGAIN YOU CAN CONTACT THE GREAT MAN ON eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%4f%53%41%55%59%49%4c%4f%56%45%53%50%45%4c%4c%40%59%41%48%4f%4f%2e%43%4f%4d%22%3e%4f%53%41%55%59%49%4c%4f%56%45%53%50%45%4c%4c%40%59%41%48%4f%4f%2e%43%4f%4d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')) OR YOU CAN CALL HIS CELL PHONE ON +2347064294395 good luck
