    Thanks for the suggestion namelesswonder! While dairy does bother my tummy a bit, I meant more like water bloat/water retention in my original post. Its the psychological effects of holding a few...

    Tapioca starch, carrageenan, sunflower lecithin, natural flavor. Tapioca isn't primal. Carrageenan is a thickener that while I believe is plant-derived still goes under chemical restructuring. It is...
