Yes, all of our foods are made from organic ingredients only. Why should we avoid pesticides and eat organic? Pesticide use degrades air and water quality, while threatening the health of workers, farmers, and communities. Pesticides can also be found in a lot of the foods you eat such as fruits and vegetables. That means when you wash your produce prior to eating, you are still ingesting all of the pesticides that have absorbed into the food. Eating organic is a direct vote for your health and
Yes! We do not use any GMO ingredients in our foods. All our Green Slice Foods are organic which makes them inherently “GMO-free” ― this is one of the many strict guidelines set forth by the USDA. The United States government does NOT allow companies to label products Organic if they contain genetically modified foods.
Yes, all of our foods are top 9 allergen-free, and made at a 100% allergen-free facility preventing any cross contamination of food allergens.
Yes, all Green Slice Foods are soy-free and do not contain any type of soy, tempeh, or soybean oil. Love soy or hate soy, it’s actually the controversial little legume. Soy-based products contain high amounts of phytoestrogens that can be harmful to your body. There is conflicting research regarding its effects on cancer, and recently the Food and Drug Administration proposed a rule to revoke a health claim related to soy protein and heart disease.
Yes! All our foods are gluten-free, wheat-free, grain-free and allergen-free. Gluten is controversial these days. Most sources claim that it is safe for everyone except those who have celiac disease. On the other hand, some health experts believe that gluten is harmful to most people. There is concern that gluten may contribute to “leaky gut,” increasing the risk of food sensitivities and autoimmune diseases, but more research is needed. Until then, the gluten-free evolution may go on for years.
Yes, all Green Slice Foods are dairy-free, lactose-free and casein-free, and made in a facility that does not use any dairy ingredients. Science shows that the beneficial nutrients found in dairy can be consumed through other foods; milk is not essential for health. Besides humans (and companion animals who are fed by humans), no species drinks milk beyond their infancy. The production of dairy foods places considerable demand on land, water, and other natural resources.
Yes. Green Slice does not contain any meat and is made in a 100% meat-free and dairy-free facility. The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified processed meats as a Group 1 carcinogen, the same category as tobacco smoking and asbestos, known to cause cancer. Red meat, such as beef, lamb and pork, has been classified as a Group 2A carcinogen which means it probably causes cancer.
All our foods should always be stored in the freezer and can be kept frozen for up to 6 months. After you've cooked the veggie balls these can be kept in the fridge for several days.
Most people assume that fresh is always best, and frozen produce is strictly for convenience's sake. But turns out, freezing produce actually helps to retain vitamins and minerals that would otherwise be lost if stored at room temperature or in the fridge. In addition, freezing is a natural form of preservation, so added preservatives aren't necessary to preserve frozen food.
In recognition of an ever-increasing need to improve the health of our natural world and its people, we have decided to focus our business on developing new, healthy, and delicious, plant-based recipes exclusively out of our Vermont production facility. Unfortunately, this does mean that for now we will no longer be offering the deli slices or veggie dogs we did in the past.
