The question absolutely has to do with process...if it was about ingredients OP would have asked for a list of ingredients. Some mixes have chemical ingredients and some don't.

Which ones don't? I'm aware of brownie mixes not necessarily having them, but most commercial cake mixes that I know of do have the polyblahblah in them. Can't think of the name right now.

Not sure if they are available in bulk, but here are some examples of mixes with all natural ingredients:

Ah, King Arthur...I don't think they're available in grocery stores (maybe the King Arthur one is) but I also see that they require baking skills, since people are complaining that their cake was dry. I have no doubt that it isn't the cake mix, it's their lack of skills in making a non-additive filled cake that doesn't have gums and laxative ingredients in it to keep them "moist" and gummy.

I guess this is where we are not on the same page.  To me, a mix is a compilation of ingredients.  A process is how those ingredients are combined and prepared.  So if I, personally, were to have asked that same question, it would have absolutely been a question of ingredients, not process.   Until it was mentioned on this thread, it would not have occurred to me that it could be considered a question of the process.  So, consequently, neither of us has any idea how the baker perceived the question.  There is truth in the old saying, "There is no reality, only perception."

I had no idea there were mixes with no chemical ingredients.  Can you suggest a brand?

I must have been typing when you were listing the mixes.  Thank you.

From looking at the time you posted, I couldn't have been typing when you listed the mixes.  I must have been posting before I refreshed the page.  I'll get it right...eventually.
