Dextrin: If you’re in your local supermarket and pick up different items, you may see the popular ingredient in many different products, dextrin. The most common form of dextrin that is used in the food industry is white dextrins. White dextrins are commonly found on the ingredient labels of a ton of different products in your grocery store, including Simply Delish. We use dextrin in our range of puddings as an all-natural thickener, except for Chocolate Flavor. When combined with a liquid such as milk, water, or almond milk, it’ll thicken any products including soups, baby food, and stews. Aside from being an all-natural thickening agent, it’s also an ingredient used to replace fats in low-calorie foods. 
Emulsifier: The verb emulsifying can be defined as two or more liquids that are normally unmixable. However, the vegan emulsifiers we use in our range are meant to add texture and freshness as well as keep together the dry and moist ingredients. 
Potato Starch: Potato is in the name, so this starch must come from potatoes. If that’s what you were assuming, you assumed right. Potato starch is a common root starch that is derived from the cells of potatoes, plus it’s plant-based and gluten-free! It’s used as a thickening agent, but there is a difference between potato starches and grain starches. When eating foods with potato starch, you’ll find that they have a much smoother mouthfeel than a grain-based starch. 
Natural Flavor: Our range of desserts is comprised of natural, plant-based ingredients, including the flavoring in each of our flavors. Instead of using artificial flavors that can potentially harm your body. Natural flavors are created through the process of roasting or heating materials such as vanilla or cocoa in order to create a natural, sweet-tasting flavor. The environment is the source of our products, and therefore must be protected. It is essential to preserve ecosystem functions and to provide for the wellbeing of future generations Our corporate goals endeavor to achieve the overall quality of life! 
Natural Color: Synthetic colors in food products is so last year. All-natural food-based coloring is what’s in this year. You can find natural colors in foods found around your house and pantry. How does one obtain natural food-based coloring? Simple. Foods and naturally sourced materials with similar “colorings are physically extracted resulting in selective extraction of pigments relative” to the food or product of choice. 
Erythritol: This zero-calorie, plant-based sweetener can be found in many fruits and vegetables. Erythritol is considered a type of carbohydrate called sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in foods such as pears, watermelon and grapes. This sweetener has added benefits because it does not impact blood glucose or insulin secretion! 
Stevia Extract: Originating in South America, stevia extract comes directly from the stevia plant. Stevia is a commonly used substitute for sugar that on average is 200-350 times sweeter than granulated. For more information on stevia and why we use it in our range of products, check out our blog post What is Stevia: benefits, facts, and uses.
Salt: Ok, do we really need to go into depth about salt? You most likely used it to season your dinner or breakfast this morning. Like you seasoned your eggs this morning, we use salt in our range of products to add flavor and compliment the sweet side of desserts.
