Are all of your products GMO certified?

Please note that our ingredients are GMO free.  Also, our packaging is BPA free.

Do your products require refrigeration?

Our Tasty Bite products are shelf stable.  As long as the pouches have not been opened, they do not need to be refrigerated, nor frozen.  The pouches are called retort pouches and the preservation process is similar to canning.  Therefore you may store the pouches in a cupboard, or pantry, or any other room temperature storage place.

Are your pouches recyclable?

Our packaging is called a retort pouch. This technology allows us to assemble and cook the ingredients within the package. Therefore the product becomes shelf stable for 18 months+. The components that make up the retort technology are not currently recyclable. However we are working with various packaging technologists to research recyclable alternatives while maintaining the Great Taste, Good Value, and Real Convenience that our consumers have come to love.

Are all of your products Kosher?

All of our of our products are certified Kosher.   The Kosher certification is provided by the Kosher Inspection Service of India, under the supervision of Rabbi Avraham Binyamin (Mohel, Shoket, & Melamed Israel and USA).

Can I heat your products outdoors?

Tasty Bite is a great companion for many of our outdoor enthusiast consumers. It's great for on the go, inside and out. The products we offer are cooked within the pouch at the factory level and only need to be heated up to enjoy. Therefore you may place the pouches in boiling water to heat up the contents.

Are all of your products Gluten Free?

We are proud to offer products with Great Taste, Good Value, and Real Convenience, many of which are gluten free. Please note that we do test our products for gluten. Additionally, there is no cross-contamination in our factory.   We follow the strict batch process .  This allows us to keep ingredients separate. All of our gluten free products have packaging that is clearly marked Gluten Free.

Is your production plant facility Nut Free?

Our facility manufactures a variety of products, some of which contain nuts. We make sure that our packing clearly notes if these allergens are present in our products.  For example, in the case of Madras Lentils and Channa Masala, there are no nuts. Please know that there is no cross-contamination at our facility.   Although the facility also processes nuts, soy, wheat, and dairy, we are FDA and ISO certified which regulates the areas of processing. We follow the batch process method of production, where each batch is dedicated to one product only. Once the production is done, the production and prep areas are thoroughly cleaned as per HACCP norms. Of course, we recommend that you use your own discretion in regards to our products.

Where can I find Meal Inspirations?

Unfortunately we have discontinued our Meal Inspirations (Lentil Magic, Chunky Chickpeas, Zesty Lentils and Peas, and Barley Medley).  We apologize for any inconvenience. We have replaced the Meal Inspirations with excellent Asian noodles, flavorful rices, and bold, delicious Indian and Thai Entrees.

Can I eat your products after the Best By date on the package?

The Best By date noted on our pouches is the recommended industry standard of 18 months from our manufacture date.  This is the date to which we guarantee freshness. However studies have shown that our products are still safe to consume 6 months after the Best By date.  We do not guarantee the product after the date on the pouch.  Of course we ask that you use your discretion when making your decision, as we cannot see the actual product.
