In that case you probably love ot read these to replies...

Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding Sun-Maid Raisins.  We

appreciate your

concern over a possible connection between our product and your

health.

There are no additives or preservatives in our Sun-Maid Natural

Sun-Dried Raisins or our

Zante Currants.  When the raisins are ready to be processed, we clean

the raisins using

large aspirators (vaccums), graders, and shakers to remove stems, dirt,

and other foreign

objects.

We then do a very thorough washing in fresh water which not only

rehydrates the raisins,

but also serves to move the raisins along the conveyor systems during

processing.  There

are no additives used to coat the raisins.

Sun-Maid Golden Raisins are cleaned in much the same way, although

these raisins are

treated with the preservative sulfur dioxide.  This form of sulfite has

been used for

centuries to prevent darkening of the fruit during the drying process.

Sulfites also help

preserve the vitamin A and vitamin C contents of foods.  The ingredient

listing on all our

packages are complete and accurate, and should be read carefully.

If you do have any further questions, we suggest you contact your

family physician.  They

are the best source for proper advice.

Sincerely,

Sun-Maid Growers of California

I had heard simular as you did, eplsy with reguards to dusting lines with flour, so I asked again to be safe and got ths following reply. This one you will prbly realy like...

We do not dust the lines with flour.  All of our dried fruit products

are gluten free.

Sincerely,

Sun-Maid Growers of California

So, eat up! :D
