Take our ingredient quiz!

In our first class, we started our examination of industrial farming by learning about corn-derived food additives, and just how ubiquitous they are in our food. We ransacked the AMS food stores looking for products without corn, and found quite a few, but for the most part, corn ruled the day. We created this quiz for you out of some of the ingredients we found. Good luck!

Which food DOES NOT have a corn-derived product in it?

1.) The Fillo Factory Organic Fillo Dough. Ingredients: Organic wheat flour, filtered water, organic wheat starch, organic tapioca starch, organic expeller pressed safflower/soy/sunflower oil, salt, organic malt extract, Non-GMO Soy Lecithin, Tri-Calcium phosphate.

2.) Laura Lynn Lemon Juice from concentrate. Ingredients: Lemon juice from concentrate (water, concentrated lemon juice), sodium bisulfate (preservative), sodium benzoate (preservative), and lemon oil.

3.) Mesa Grande Picante Sauce. Ingredients: Crushed tomatoes (water, concentrated crushed tomatoes), water, fresh jalapeno peppers, distilled vinegar, fresh onions, salt, dehydrated onions, xanthan gum, dehydrated garlic and natural flavoring.

4.) Muir Glen Organic Crushed Tomatoes. Ingredients: Organic tomatoes, organic tomato puree (water, tomato paste), sea salt, naturally derived citric acid. 

5.) Philadelphia Regular Cream Cheese Spread. Ingredients: Pasteurized nonfat milk and milkfat, whey protein concentrate, cheese culture, salt, whey stabilizers (xanthan and/or carob bean and/or guar gums), sorbic acid as a preservative, vitamin a palmitate.
