Materials Annotations: Manitoba Starch is a flour of common wheat (Triticum Aestivum);  Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is the aluminum salt of the reaction product of octenylsuccinic anhydride with starch, it is used as an anti-caking agent and a nonaqueous viscosity increasing agent; Zinc Oxide is an inorganic compound insoluble in water, used as a bulking agent and a colorant; Magnesium Stearate is an additive primarily used as a flow agent to prevent individual ingredients from sticking to each other; Silicon Dioxide is a natural compound used as an anti-caking agent; Spirulina (Arthrospira Platensis Phycocyanin) is a biomass of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae); Agar is a jelly-like substance that forms the supporting structure in the cell walls of red algae (Rhodophyta); Glycerol is a simple polyol compound that is colorless, odorless, and non-toxic; Vinegar is an aqueous solution of acetic acid with a typical concentration of 5–8% acetic acid by volume.
