Not to pick nits, but ... well, OK, let's pick nits.

Sodium phosphate is an emulsifier; it keeps oils from separating. Not a preservative. Ditto cornstarch.

Salt dextrose is a sweetener.

Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate is a leavening agent. So is Monocalcium Phosphate.

Citric acid is a preservative; it's a naturally occurring acid in citrus fruits and juices.

BHT is a flat-out chemical preservative, and I'm surprised it's in there. That's the only one that strikes me as a direct contradiction to their marketing statement about using no preservatives. Hm.

Glad you're enjoying the food at any rate.
Onward and downward,
