Dear Mr. xyzret,

This letter is in reference to your recent contact with Smucker Foods of Canada Co. We appreciate the time you have taken to contact us and most certainly enjoy hearing from consumers who enjoy our products. The composition of the Robin Hood flour is enriched wheat flour. The enriching ingredients mandated by the Canadian governement for all flours are ascorbic acid, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin and folic acid. The flour also contains the bleaching agent benzoyl peroxide and the amylase enzyme.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. If you should have further questions or need additional information, please contact us at 1-800-567-1897, Monday to Friday, between 8am and 7pm EST.

so this/these product(s) made by robinhood need further investigation since the source of the "fortification" ingredients is unkown as of yet...

  1. What if you ask them what the source of the enriching/processing ingredients are? I called them about a year ago, and they told me that there are no animal-derived ingredients used to process their flour. You might want to contact them again though, in case it's changed now...
