Please try to get the labeling of foods and their sources more specific so persons such as myself can find a reasonable and safe source of food. Deceptive and difficult labeling includes "artificial flavoring" (what *is* that?) "starch" (what kind??) "15% broth" (broth made of exactly what?). I cannot consume over 95% of what is on the market because of multiple food intolerances, and dare not experiment with anything that is questionable. Many, many products do not have all the ingredients listed at all, as I have discovered the hard way. People need to know what they are eating.

Thank you,
Jan Everly
