Generally, the USDA states freezing keeps food safe almost indefinitely, with quality being affect by the freezer conditions and length of time being frozen. A key component to maintaining quality is ensuring the wrapping/packaging of the product is not permeable to air (i.e vacuum sealed). For optimum taste and tenderness, the USDA recommends storing all frozen foods at 0° F (or lower) to retain vitamin content, color, flavor and texture. If you do not vacuum seal all your frozen food and/or given your home freezer may not be that cold, D'Artagnan will recommend you use frozen products within 4 weeks of receipt.
Yes. According to the USDA, it is safe to refreeze uncooked foods that have thawed under refrigeration, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. Alternatively, for defrosted products you choose to keep in the refrigerator, D'Artagnan will recommend using them in 3-5 days.
While all raw meat is naturally gluten-free, regardless of what the animal is fed, some of prepared products may contain gluten, or be made in a facility that processes other products that may contain soy, dairy, wheat or tree nuts. Please check individual product details and ingredients.
Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. These proteins give bread and other baked goods their springy texture, and help bind ingredients in other foods. Gluten acts as a glue of sorts, and can be found in many prepared foods.
