At SPUD, we care about what you eat. We know that healthy, real food is important to you, and it’s important to us too. That’s why we’ve done our research, and compiled a list of totally unnecessary food additives that we find unacceptable. This banned ingredient list helps determine what products make it to our shelves. These include artificial colours and flavours, preservatives, hydrogenated fats and many others.
