11. Trefoils do not use corn syrup

They don't use actual butter for some reason, and use palm oil, but the sweeteners are sugar and condensed milk. The only ingredient that REALLY bothers me (for a few reasons) is the palm oil. Some of the "unnatural ingredients" you mention are anything but -- they are vitamins. Soy lecithin is merely a non-animal-based emulsifier.

This is the Trefoils standard ingredient list for all GSA bakeries:

Enriched flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate , riboflavin , folic acid), soybean and palm oil, sugar, contains two percent or less of brown sugar (sugar, molasses), sweetened condensed milk (condensed milk, sugar), dried buttermilk, salt, natural and artificial flavor, baking soda, soy lecithin.
