I think the problem here is not the RG brand but that not everyone reads the labels and knows that when they list spinach, apple, broccoli and pea on the front, that it is actually 70% apple. (I'm reading from the pack in front of me).
As long as you read the label you can balance the rest of the food accordingly.

You're spot on though - everyone needs to read the actual contents, regardless of brand

Don't forget we have the 5% rule here for ingredients lists, if its under 5% you don't need to list it, I just looked at the raffertys garden website, the fruit and vegg only ones must have salt added as the sodium content is more than what just the fruit would be? The sugars however seemed similar to what the whole fruit sugar would be?
I also noticed a few in the older 10 month + range contain soy and yeast extract ( MSG) and loads of salt so I would definitely be reading the ingredients list before you buy ( or just do BLW and you don't need packet food!)

I don't know - maybe the salt is added to the fruit before they get it? It's just it said on their packet 4 mg salt in one 120g pack of just pears and apricots - 100g of fresh pears has under 1 mg and 100g of fresh apricots is also under 1mg sodium so maybe they just use salty fruit!

I seriously doubt that they would be adding salt and then not declaring it.

Yeh I thought that too but the sugar content is the same as the whole fruit which I also assumed may be more concentrated because of the purée but it wasn't? I say just give them a banana - no labels to worry about!

We use whole fruit whenever possible too of course - however not always possible when traveling through airports, or arriving at destination late at night thanks to delayed airlines!
