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
