Most of those ingredients are fairly common in kitchens, although silicon dioxide (flow agent) and ethoxyquin ( a food preservative and a pesticide!) may be a little trickier to find at the local mom & pop grocery store...
If I had seen the ingredients online I wouldn't have ordered it but for $4/lbs I figured why not. From what I could tell the ethoxyquin is actually used to preserve the color. I'll try it and see how it turns out.
