Pumpkin is a round, yellow-orange squash derivative, with a thick shell containing edible seeds and pulp. The seeds are often salted and roasted, and eaten as a snack; the pulp can be boiled, steamed, baked or roasted and is commonly used as pie filling or as a soup base.
Sugar, or sucrose, provides sweetness and texture to foods, and is made by evaporating water from the syrup of sugar cane or sugar beets until sugar crystals form. Sugar may be granulated, or very finely ground into powder when a finer texture is desired.
Ginger, or ginger root, is a hot, fragrant spice that is eaten fresh, pureed, pickled, candied, cooked or dried and finely ground. The plant is in the same family of herbs as turmeric, cardamom and galangal.
The J.M. Smucker Company is committed to complying with federal GMO labeling regulations, specifically the Bioengineered Foods Disclosure Act. These regulations will require labeling of foods that contain bioengineered (GMO) ingredients. Disclosure must be through text, a symbol, or a scannable code, such as a SmartLabel™ QR code. Once the government has fully developed the language and guidelines for labeling, Smucker will implement these requirements across all products with genetically modified ingredients.
