Most items in the grocery store did not exist 50 years ago. They didn't exist because the chemicals hadn't been created or the one's that had been created were used for industrial uses, like jet fuel, antifreeze and agent orange and it hadn't occurred to anybody yet that so much money could be made by adding them to food as replacements for actual food ingredients. Those days are long gone and it is now up to you to make sure they aren't in the food you feed yourself and your family because no one else is.
Food that comes in packaging for other than sellability, like a bag for grapes, is processed. Processed food packaging has words printed all over it. All words, apart from the ingredient label, are marketing and are not to be replied upon for truthfulness. They are nothing but a lure, ignore them.
