I have just been reading through some different threads again and something keeps coming up that really bothers me. The spaghetti sauce one, the one about different kinds of flour, the cocoa one. Am I totally unaware, or is it different in Canada? As far as I know, if a spaghetti sauce has an oil in it that is, in fact, peanut oil, it must clearly state so, or it must say "may contain". Flour means regular (wheat?) flour unless it says specifically, for example "almond flour". I really believe our labeling systems are totally different. I'm getting freaked out because I don't read the labels on the spaghetti sauce I buy, but I know I don't have to because it is clearly labeled. Even when buying actual vegetable oil, I have only come across one brand, I forget which one, that said, "may contain peanut oil". Is it because you actually grow peanuts in America and we don't? Our big oil is canola (don't ask me what that is!) because we grow that here.
