The term Natural is just a meaningless marketing adjective that's being exploited by manufacturers.

Quote from http://www.fda.gov/aboutfda/transparency/basics/ucm214868.htm :What is the meaning of 'natural' on the label of food?
From a food science perspective, it is difficult to define a food product that is 'natural' because the food has probably been processed and is no longer the product of the earth. That said, FDA has not developed a definition for use of the term natural or its derivatives. However, the agency has not objected to the use of the term if the food does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances.
