Frequently Asked Question

 

What is the shelf life of our lettuce?

Since there are no preservatives in our lettuce, it is suggested to follow the best before date to take advantage of their nutritional properties and freshness. For blends containing chopped romaine lettuce, it is best to consume the content within 48 hours once the container is opened; for our other lettuces we recommend 3-5 days after opening of the container.

Should Lettuce be washed?

I found a bug in my bowl, what can I do?

You can put it aside and rinse your lettuce with fresh water and dry them well before eating. Insects are not toxic; some are even great allies against smaller insects detrimental to our cultures.

Why does romaine lettuce turn red-orange?

Chopped romaine lettuce reacts with oxygen. They say it oxides. This is a natural reaction. We control the proper oxygen level in the bowl until it is opened. That is why we recommend you to enjoy quickly.
