The acids or enzymes are then neutralized, removed, or deactivated, and the resulting product is then refined, purified, and concentrated.
“High maltose corn syrup and maltodextrin are highly processed, do not exist in nature, and not even under the most elastic possible definition could they be considered ‘natural,'” said Michael F. Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. CSPI’s litigation department is acting as co-counsel in the suit.
High-maltose corn syrup and/or maltodextrin are in dozens of Nature Valley varieties including various flavors of Sweet & Salty Nut bars, Chewy Trail Mix bars, and Granola Thins.

A caption reads, “[N]o matter how many flavors we create, you can be assured that with Nature Valley you’re always getting The Taste Nature Intended.”
