Where's the Meat?
Lays BLT chips actually contain, as the 8th ingredient, "natural bacon type flavor"
Digging around in other ingredient list I find that "bacon type flavor" is normally made of:some combination of
smoke flavor (?)
Hydrolyzed Corn Soy Wheat Gluten Protein (?)
Autolyzed Yeast Extract
Soy, Corn and Wheat Protein
and the ubiquitous other "natural flavors" (???)
(link, link, link)
Other natural flavors are...? Some rendered pig fat possibly? or...?
As ingredient lists go, this is a bit useless as I am left fundamentally unsure whether one, or more, of the four allegedly key ingredients are actually used in the product at all.
And don't even get me started on "lettuce type flavor".
