R.W.Knudsen Complaint - Apple juice drinkers - BEWARE!
A friend recently sent me an email about apple juice in the US. Turns out that most (if not all) apple juice used in the US comes from apple juice concentrate from CHINA. I was skeptical but did my own research and found this to be true. This includes RW Knudsen - found in most natural health food stores and touted as bein "natural and organic."
I contacted them directly and found them evasive in their responses. They never admitted that the apple juice concentrate they use is from China but they did NOT deny it either. They did admit that they use products from other countries in their juices. Here's what they wrote: "When we do source from anywhere outside the United States, you can be assured that these ingredients also meet our high quality assurance standards. "
Given all of the crap that has been coming out of China, I don't trust anything, consumables and non-consumables, from China. And, how can Knudsen state that their products are organic when part of the ingredients are not even under their control? They wrote that they have certificates from these suppliers outside of the US - I think that these certificates aren't worth the paper on which they are written.
