Unacceptable Additives

Like you, we are concerned about the safety and health impacts of all the nasties in a lot of modern food. That’s why we have developed a list of unacceptable additives that we have banned from GYG’s food. At GYG you won’t find many additives in our food, but when additives are necessary we’ll explain why, and what they are.
