Is this a dry product?
No, this is a cooked mash with the same texture and consistency that you would expect from freshly cooked and mashed taro.
Does it need to be reheated?
No, it can be enjoyed straight out of the pouch.
Does it contain any preservatives?
No, it’s all natural and contains absolutely no preservatives or additives.
How can it keep for so long?
Our mashed taros are packaged and thermo-stabilized in specially made retort-pouches, similar to ones used for field rations and for astronauts to consume in outer space!
How does it taste?
We’ve packed in years of R&D and experience to manufacture an all-natural, ready-to-eat food product that resembles freshly cooked mashed taro – if not better. That’s thanks to our processing parameters and closed-loop cooking system designed to optimize the food taste, texture, and colour.
Is this product and packaging environmentally friendly?
The short answer is yes.
But we can break this down further into:
Our food itself: there’s strong evidence that suggests that vegan foods like our mashed taro can benefit both health and environment.
Our packaging: our pouches can be recycled into aluminized resin or up-cycled into textile materials. The weight of our pouch is less than a regular can or bottle, and the energy required to produce each pouch is less than competing packaging from metals, paper, and glass.
Our processing: for cooking the same bowl of mashed taro, our batch processing is more energy efficient compared to cooking it at home.
Our transportation: compared to chilled product alternatives, our ambient portability and shelf-stability can relieve the refrigeration energy burden on the environment.
