Á???????ÁAll but three of the ingredients for the seasoning are products of either Canada or the United States. The exceptions are the black pepper oleoresin from India, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate from Japan, and the sugar that may originate from any of 15 non©NAFTA countries. In Canada, the ingredients are mixed and packed for industrial use as a seasoning, applied to pre©salted potato chips.
