So here is the answer I got back.............it's not what we'd hoped for either

 

"Yes, it would have to be declared in the list of ingredients.  It is considered an additive in the salt and additives of ingredients must be declared despite the quantity.  I checked the Health Canada website and sodium dioxide is a permitted additive in salt up to 1% or 2% in fine grade salt."


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

In my opinion, this has to be declared as it is a food additive and within the generation of ingredients which is required to be declared. if this is the only sugar you use in your product, then you can just include this on list of ingredient in decreasing order of quantity as if an ingredient of the product or if you use other sugar based, must be grouped.

 

I don't think this is can be qualified as a food additive preparation so this will not be exempted from declaration.
