Q. Your Pesach Guide says that frozen fruit may be used without hashgachah if it is not sweetened or cooked. What if the ingredient panel says that it contains ascorbic acid, citric acid, or sugar?
A. Ascorbic acid or citric acid may be made from chametz or kitnios (or innocuous). But if the ingredients are just fruit and sugar, and the product is not cooked, you may use it for Pesach, even without special certification.
