Yes, but it has Green Bell Pepper twice. And I am wondering what Scared Lotus is. How do they scare it? Doesn't that make it taste bad?

I always distrust any food with that long an ingredient list. I especially wonder about that unidentified "natural flavor"! Does that mean that all the other ingredients are unnatural?
lol

You have to follow the parentheses. When a mixture is added, the ingredients are often listed in parentheses. Chili powder would be (chile,cumin,garlic,oregano). It seems like manufacturers go out of their way to make it confusing, but their objective is to comply with the law, not to explain what's in their product to you.

And with all humor aside, this looks a lot like a generic ingredient list for all Bannock foods, not specifically this one. I think that it also allowed...

Reading about their offerings at Amazon, I'm a bit concerned that their descriptions for any foods may be inaccurate. There are just too many typos or spelling errors. What else are they getting wrong?

Maybe they shout "boo!"?
Or could it be sacred lotus?
