Default I called and asked whats in taco sauce

The old el paso brand taco sauce packets lists the ingredients, but not amounts.--- for the mild sauce it lists maltodextrin (a food additive) as the main ingredient and for original flavor it lists maltodextrin as number two.
I called the 1 800 number and asked what amounts were in it. she said they were sending that question to another section/person ,they would call me back in a day or two/
she was pleasant but I almost could not understand her. think they would have been asked that question before, maybe covid is hurting their responses.
my wife has some food alergies.

There are some things you just really don't need to know or shouldn't

Maltodextrin is a sugar! Not a big deal.

You may have some good reason to know. But, just like me responding, some people just have too much time on their hands.

there is a guy on this forum who called Regulator asking why they were jerking another member around with a boat he had bought from them. Talk about having to much time on your hands.

My Mexican sauces generally begin with a mole' concentrate that I buy online. I used to make the mole' myself but it takes 20-24 hours of slow cooking and constant attention. The concentrate is just as good. Then I shape the sauce with various Chiles, tomatoes, etc.

I buy the Dona Maria concentrate jars at Publix, add spices including dark unsweetened chocolate and ground cinnamon. It's really good but not close to the homemade that my aunt's housekeeper used to bring back from Oaxhaca.

I'm going to try that. Thanks.

OP, allergies to food and food packaging is a bear and I feel for your wife. Hopefully, they'll respond to your request. I have a friend with severe latex allergy and they play hell in getting correct and complete information.

They (a nice woman who spoke poor english) called today, said basically it the amounts, were secret, so no details. reason I asked them was that some brands of the sweetner Stevia also list maltodextrin as the first (biggest) ingredient, they said the filler in this brand of stevia was 87%

If they told you the amounts of each ingredients then you could make the sauce yourself.

If it's "catsup" it belongs in the Bye Bye Wabbitt thread.
