INGREDIENTS

FIELD DAY canned beans are soaked prior to cooking. Batches of beans are tested during the soak process to achieve the desired moisture before canning. After the beans are finished soaking, the beans are cooked at a high temperature while under pressure for twelve minutes.

When palm oil is used in FIELD DAY products, we only use sustainable palm oil.

FIELD DAY Apple Cider Vinegar does not contain “the mother.” The vinegar still contains the enzyme (acetobacter) after pasteurization. Pasteurization does not kill the mother completely, but it significantly slows down the process. Some, but not all the probiotics are broken down.
