"Natural" doesn't seem to be a very meaningful word when it comes to food products. What does Applegate mean by "natural"?
For more than 25 years, Applegate has been producing high-quality natural and organic hot dogs, bacon, sausages, deli meats, cheese and frozen products. Natural can mean many things, but when Applegate says their products are natural, consumers are guaranteed that they are free of GMO ingredients and that the meat inside is:
Raised without antibiotics or added hormones
From animals fed a vegetarian or 100% grass diet and treated with humane raising standards
Free of added chemical nitrites, nitrates or phosphates
Free of artificial ingredients or preservatives
Free from all added growth promotants
