What is the best way to store your products in order to maintain their freshness?
For optimal freshness store in an airtight container in a cool, dry environment. For longer storage, nuts can be kept in the refrigerator away from strong-smelling foods. The freezer will keep nuts fresh up to one year and freezing won’t affect the taste.
How do I know that my nuts are fresh?
Fresh nuts have a pleasant, appetizing, nutty aroma and a crisp texture. If the nuts have a solvent or paint like smell or a bitter taste, they probably went rancid.
Is it dangerous to eat stale (rancid) nuts?
Eating rancid food is not dangerous but may lead to some digestive discomfort. Rancid nuts are less nutritious because oxidation destroys good fats and some of the vitamin content.
Why are there preservatives in dried fruits (ex: sulphites)?
Preservatives help to control bacterial growth and oxidation and to preserve the taste and color of the ingredient.
Do I need to soak dried fruits before eating them?
No, but some people find that soaking enhances their flavor and can improve texture.
Are your products gluten-free?
If you are following a strict gluten-free diet, look out for our gluten free certified products identified with the GFCP logo. Although strict cleaning procedures are in place to minimize cross contamination risks, we can not guarantee that the products that are not certified are gluten-free.
Is it healthy to eat nuts every day?
Yes! According to our Bassé Registered Dietitians, eating nuts and seeds as part of a healthy diet has many health benefits. Tree nuts are a good source of protein, healthy fats and fibre, a winning snack combination to keep you fueled between meals.
What is a recommended serving size of nuts?
One serving of nuts or seeds is about a ¼ cup or 60 mL. This amount should just fit into the palm of your hand.
I heard Brazil nuts contain a lot of selenium. Is this good for me?
Selenium is an antioxidant that may play a role in disease prevention. According to our Bassé Registered Dietitians, eating just 1-2 Brazil nuts per day is all that is needed to meet your daily selenium requirements. Be careful not to overdo it: too much selenium can lead to adverse health effects and physical discomfort.
Is canola oil healthy?
Canola oil is made from the canola plant, which is derived from the rapeseed plant. It has a mild, relatively neutral flavor and can withstand a high smoke point which makes it ideal for roasting nuts. According to our Bassé Registered Dietitians, canola oil is a good choice since it contains mainly monounsaturated (or “healthy”) fats, including omega-3 fats, and it also contains phytosterols that reduce the absorption of cholesterol into the body. Like all foods, our dietitians recommend that you enjoy it in moderation!
Are organic ingredients healthier than non-organic (conventional) ingredients?
The word “organic” refers to the way products are grown and processed without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs, or other artificial agents. According to our Bassé Registered Dietitians, there is not enough evidence to say that organic foods are more or less nutritious than non-organic foods. Healthy foods such as nuts are nutritious whether they are organically grown or not.
Are dried fruits healthy? What are the benefits of eating them?
Dried fruit is made by taking the water out of the fruit by sun drying or using a machine called a dehydrator. They are part of the vegetable and fruit food group and can be a source of antioxidants, iron and fibre in the diet. Our Bassé Registered Dietitians recommend enjoying dried fruit in moderation as part of a healthy diet.
Why are peanuts not considered a nut?
You may be surprised to learn that peanuts are actually part of the legume family. They grow underground (as opposed to tree nuts such as almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts, which grow on trees).
Are your bags recyclable?
