I love cornbread and corn muffins but a lot of corn products on the market are made with genetically modified organisms and I’m not fond of that at all.
I’d also prefer a cornbread mix that is prepared without any dairy, beef, or lard derivatives and also one without any artificial and harsh unpronounceable additives.
So I was excited when I came across Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free corn bread mix because the gluten-free version didn’t have any thing listed in the ingredients that I wasn’t able to eat from what I read on the bag.
Bob’s Red Mill is a brand that I purchase regularly.
I brought home two bags of the cornbread mix. I happened to check on their website before I attempted to make any cornbread and noticed that under the advertising of the product there was no “vegan” acknowledgement.
There was the statements assuring that the mix was gluten-free and kosher, but that was it.
So I got curious and called up the company and explained my concern and they told me that the vegan statement wasn’t listed due to the sugar probably being processed through bone char.
That explained it! It hadn’t dawned on me about the sugar.
In return, I was reimbursed for the $12 dollars that I had spent on the cornbread mixes.
I expected to receive a check in the mail but instead I received a ten-dollar bill along with two ones and a professional letter from Bob’s Red Mill company.
I appreciated the gesture.
