I got a jar of "Cocoa Hazelnut Spread" from Trader Joe's earlier this week and it confuses me. On one side of the label it says "No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives." On the other side of the label it says "Do Not Refrigerate." I'm trying to think of what natural preservatives might be in it, but all i can come up with is salt, but that's not listed in the ingredients list and the nutrition facts say there's only 10 mg of sodium per 2 tablespoons.

The ingredients they list are "Sugar, Hazlenuts, Sunflower and Hazelnut Oils, Cocoa Powder, Whey Powder, Milk Powder, and Soy Lecithin," none of which sounds particularly preserving to me.
