Princess, I put lite maple syrup on my pancakes instead of the honey. Very tasty.

I'm seeing no preservatives on many meals, and a miniscule amount on others. It certainly doesn't bother me. No long lists of chemicals, etc. Here's an example, from my lunch yesterday, which was lentil soup:

Ingredients:
--vegetable broth (water, carrots, onion, spaghetti squash, celery, cabbage, garlic, ginger, parsley, kosher salt)
--water
--tomatoes (tomatoes, tomato juice, salt, citric acid, calcium chloride)
--lentils
--carrots
--pearled barley
--onion
--celery
--pomace olive oil (refined olive pomace oil and extra virgin olive oil)
--garlic, oregano, black pepper, rosemary

That's it. The only preservatives in there are the calcium chloride, which is a salt, and the citric acid, which is a natural preservative. No synthetic chemicals. That's pretty typical from what I've seen. I think they make a big effort to keep their food as healthy and natural as possible.
