A:

A:

Yes! You can buy our products in Publix stores in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Florida and South Carolina.

A:

With the exception of our bases, none of our products contain gluten. Our plant tests products for gluten and we wash pots between batches. That said, we do use the same pots to cook all of our products so none of our items are certified gluten-free. The only guaranteed no-gluten item would be our dry beans since they are not cooked.

A:

Yes, all of our canned red beans and navy bean products are vegetarian and vegan.

A:

Each of our bases contains a different flavor profile, depending on the type of gumbo you want to cook or meat you want to add. Our Seafood Gumbo Base is with made with fish stock and okra with medium dark roux. The Chicken Gumbo Base has a chicken stock with a medium dark roux. Our Gumbo Ya-Ya also uses chicken stock but has a much darker roux. Lastly, our Cajun Gumbo uses a beef stock and has a heavier roux with extra spices and aromatic herbs.

A:

You bet! They’re an excellent low-fat source of protein and dietary fiber, and a good source of iron, phosphorus and potassium. They also contain phytonutrients.

A:

Some of us do, some of us don’t. If you don’t soak your beans, expect to have to cook them longer.

A:

All of our canned products expire after three years, and dry beans expire after two years. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend consuming any product past the expiration date.

A:

If you can no longer see the expiration date, or cannot find it, there should also be a lot code printed on the bottom of your can or bag. If you send us that code via our “contact page,” we can let you know when your can was made and if it’s okay to eat.

A:

Thank you for wanting to show your support for the brand! Unfortunately, we do not have any merchandise currently for sale. Sometimes we do giveaway merchandise on our social channels. We hope you decide to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

A:

Contrary to popular belief, the best place to grow red kidney beans and navy beans is not in the South. We select the best quality beans based on the water content of the soil and other factors. As a result, the majority of our beans come from farms up north in Minnesota and Michigan.

A:

We leave it open ended so that people can experiment and find what works for them. However, we typically use about a pound of meat or seafood per base. Let us know what you think!

A:

The best way to store the product after opening the can is in an airtight container in a refrigerator. We do not recommend refrigerating the beans in the can.

A:

There is no need to freeze unopened cans of beans because the canning process preserves our products. After opening, beans can be frozen in an airtight container for a short period of time. There should not be a significant change in the flavor, but the character of the beans will most likely be altered. After being frozen, the beans tend to be much softer than normal. If you do decide to freeze our products, we do not recommend freezing for an extended period of time or freezing in the can. After prolonged freezing, beans may develop a “freezer burn” taste.

A:

All of our beans and bases are produced and packaged in our manufacturing facility in Gonzales, LA.

A:

Store in a cool, clean, dry place where temperatures are below 85 degrees (between 50-70 degrees is good) but not freezing temperatures.
