i bought some little apple sauce cups (you know the kind) and this morning, i looked at the ingredients. the ingredients are "just apples". yes. that's what it says. just apples in quotation marks. so what's REALLY in the applesauce?

well, it very well could be just apples. app sauce is very easy to make - just peel & slice some apples, add some water, boil to soft and mash.

oh rachel - i know that...but why is it in quotation marks?

Hmm, the quotation marks are suspicious. What brand is it?

I think they're trying to emphasize the fact that there's no added sweeteners in there. Even fruit juice concentrate is not particularly good, since there are no regulations on how much they can refine the fruit juice till it's basically the same as sugar.
