Human Grade & Organic Ingredients
Human Grade Ingredients
All our food products are vacuum packaged to ensure freshness and quality.
- Foods maintain their freshness and flavor 3-5 times longer with vacuum packing than conventional storage methods, because they don’t come in contact with oxygen.
- Foods maintain their texture and appearance, because microorganisms such as bacteria mold and yeast cannot grow in a vacuum.
- Insect infestation is eliminated, because insects require oxygen to survive and hatch.
When opened, some of the dehydrated food products will be ‘clumped’ from the vacuum sealing. This is normal. These can be broken up as the product is used.
Please be aware that the Vacuum bags are FRAGILE and seals do break. While all care is taken to pack & send these, sometimes you will receive a bag that has lost its vacuum. This is unavoidable due to the type of product that we are vacuuming. If you have a bag that is not vacuum sealed, please transfer to an air tight container and use by the date on the packet. While most of our bags are re-sealable, we do suggest for maximum freshness, that they are always stored inside another, air tight container and kept in a cool dark place.
While all products will last for a long time while under vacuum, once opened, please use by the date on the packet. This is calculated based on product not under vacuum.
