Why tomato paste and not fresh tomatoes?

There is a method to our madness! 😉 Our sauces are shelf-stable and only cooked for 30 seconds prior to being sealed up in glass jars, ready for you to crack them open and cook your delicious, exciting, from-scratch meals with a little help from us. With this brief cooking time, and packing as much concentrated flavor into these little jars of goodness, we found that using tomato paste (made with just non-gmo tomatoes) offers so much more rich flavor. Not only that, the paste provides a richer texture, so we are able to use ZERO STABILIZERS in our sauces!

We are currently reformulating the Caribbean sauce, as well as developing more exciting flavors, and we are proud to say and our entire product lineup will soon be Whole30 Approved. Stay tuned!

Are your products certified gluten free?

Our healthy cooking sauces do not contain gluten. We source fresh vegetables and the highest quality pure dried fruit, spices, vinegar and salt-free concentrated tomato paste that naturally do not contain gluten. Our sauces are produced at a large, professional commercial co-packer that also produces products for many large, brand name food businesses, and they are held to the highest standards. At this time our products are not certified gluten free as they are produced on equipment that may also process products that may contain gluten containing ingredients. The co-packing team has a strict cleaning protocol to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination, but any item produced on a shared line runs a slight risk of contamination. Customers with severe allergies should consider this individually when deciding whether to enjoy our products. We do intend to get gluten free certification as we grow our brand.

Are your products certified GMO free?

Our healthy cooking sauces do not contain GMOs. We source fresh vegetables and the highest quality pure dried fruit, spices, vinegar and salt-free concentrated tomato paste, and we insist that every supplier provides a Non-GMO statement. Our sauces are produced at a large, professional commercial co-packer that also produces products for many large, brand name food businesses, and they are held to the highest standards.  At this time our products are not certified non-GMO as they are produced on equipment that may also process products that may contain GMO ingredients. Our co-packing team has a strict cleaning protocol to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination, but any item produced on a shared line cannot be certified. We do intend to get GMO Free certification as we grow our brand.

Do your products contain nuts?

Our products do not contain nuts, but they are produced in a facility that may also process tree nuts. Our sauces are produced at a large, professional commercial co-packer that also produces products for many large, brand name food businesses, and they are held to the highest standards.  Our co-packing team has a strict cleaning protocol to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination, but any item produced on a shared line runs a slight risk of contamination. Customers with severe allergies should take this into account when deciding whether to consume our products.
