modified maize starch is a starch made from maize (a form of corn). you don't have to worry about that one.

mustard is a plant, that produces seeds that are used whole, or ground into a flour, and sometimes have liquid added to form a paste. the plant is safe.

dates are a fruit from a palm tree, and when ground or pureed, form a paste. that ingredient is also safe.
