Do you use local ingredients?
Yes, we source our ingredients locally whenever possible. In the
last year we’ve used organic soybeans from the Finger Lakes region of New York
(50 miles), Ontario, Canada (150 miles) and Eastern Michigan (260 miles). We try
to buy as close to home as we can, but market conditions sometimes mean going a
little farther to get the high protein organic beans that we need. But our beans
have always come from trusted North American farms.
Where can I buy SoyBoy products?
Our products are available at natural or health food stores, co-ops, or the natural food section of supermarkets.
Do any of your products contain nuts, or do you process any other products containing nuts in your facility?
All SoyBoy products and our production facility are 100% nut-free.
If there are dark spots on tempeh, should I be concerned?
Tempeh is made by a natural culturing process that sometimes produces gray spots. Such spots do not indicate spoilage or lack of quality.
Can tofu be frozen?
Yes, although the texture will change somewhat as a result of freezing.
If the date code on a refrigerated SoyBoy product has expired, is it still okay to eat?
It depends. If kept refrigerated, unopened SoyBoy products will remain edible for at least one week after the "sell-by" date code on the package.
After raw tofu has been opened you should place any unused portion in an airtight storage container and cover the tofu with fresh, cold water. Keep the unused tofu in water in the refrigerator, and change the water every day. Consume the unused portion within a week. Alternately, freeze unused raw tofu in an airtight container or plastic freezer storage bag, after draining the water.
For baked, ready-to-eat tofu--or tempeh--the guidelines are the same---place the unused baked tofu or tempeh in an airtight container or freezer bag, and refrigerate for a week, or freeze indefinitely.
What is “natural hickory smoke flavor?”
To make natural hickory smoke flavor, hickory chips are heated to a temperature high enough so they begin to smoke, but not burn. The smoke is blown over cooling coils where it condenses into a liquid that can be filtered and bottled. This liquid smoke is a natural product with beneficial antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
Are SoyBoy products kosher?
Yes, all SoyBoy products are kosher certified by Religious and Kitchen
Supervision, Inc, whose symbol is the Tablet K.
