- What's it made from? Natural foods and food additives, e.g.: food colors, natural color pigments, purified chalk, phenoxyethanol (preservative), denotium benzoate (to make it bitter so it doesn't get eaten). All in dosages that are approved for food.
- What's it packaged in? Certified food-safe 100% recycled PET plastic pot (made from used water bottles) with a virgin PP plastic lid (because no-one's making food-safe recycled PP lids...yet!), made in Europe.
