Just Veggies

Right off the label: 

"Ingredients: carrots, corn, peas, bell peppers, tomatoes - absolutely
nothing added!"

I suppose if you want to ask them about their preparation methods, you
could call the number on the label: 209-894-5371.  There is no 1-800 number
and they are not in my area code, so I'm not going to bother.  I assume
they are freeze-dried.  Where it says "absolutely nothing added" I don't
see how they could be adding oil or sulfides.
