Since when is “Liquid” an ingredient?

I found this packet of dipping sauce at work and walked back to my desk with it. On the way, something odd caught my eye. Aside from the partially hydrogenated soybean oil being the second ingredient, the first ingredient is “liquid.” Seriously. “Liquid.” Could you be any more vague than that? I suppose “liquid” is better than “bile.” I’m hesitant to assume that it’s just water…anyone have any thoughts on this?

  1. I don’t think “liquid” is being listed as an ingredient, but rather “liquid and partially hydrogenated soybean oil.” In other words, two forms of soybean oil. Partially hydrogenated oil will likely be solid (or at least somewhat solid) at room temp.

  2. I see! While that takes some of the fun out of this post, it certainly helps clear things up. Thanks for the comment! :)
