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.
Fully hydrogenated oils add texture and prevent foods from separating because they have undergone a process that makes them nearly solid at room temperature. The oils are extracted from a variety of seeds, beans, nuts or other vegetable sources before hydrogenation, including soybean, rapeseed, coconut, palm and cottonseed.
The Bioengineered Foods Disclosure Act requires labeling of foods that contain bioengineered (GMO) ingredients by January 1, 2022. The J.M. Smucker Company is committed to complying with this federal labeling regulation.
