Why do Pure Batch products need to be refrigerated?
Mama Millin and her team are working super hard every day to produce batches that are preservative-free. That means we need the fridge to keep our batches fresh! There are no binders or fillers in our products, so the fridge also keeps the perfect texture and consistency for our batches to be enjoyed.
*Please note, all batches will be shipped with to you in cold conditions (packaged with a liner and ice packs) and must be stored in refrigerated conditions upon receipt.
Can I put Pure Batch products in my bag and take them to work, school, in the car, on a plane, on a train, etc.?
Of course! Yes… and you SHOULD! While Pure Batch is best (best: meaning optimal texture and consistency) when eaten cold, our batches can be left unrefrigerated for short periods of time and quickly brought back to life when popped back in the fridge for about an hour.
Can I freeze Pure Batch?
Sure! Our batches will keep for a much longer life frozen. Just keep in mind that extended storage in the freezer may cause a bit of ‘freezer burn’ over time and that optimal texture could be a bit compromised. We recommend going straight from freezer to fridge for an hour or two before enjoying any pre-frozen batches - with the exception of our our Cacao Chip Cookies which are INCREDIBLE straight out of the freezer! No need to thaw or defrost at ALL - just pull one out and enjoy the creamy taste! Just a little PB Pro Tip for you :)
Got my batches! Opened up a brownie and only ate half, so how long will batches last once opened?
All batches are good for 5-7 days once they are opened up! Think of your batches like you would any perishable product - a solid shelf life when packaged (ours are about 45 days from production on the truffles and 60 days from production on the cookies and brownies), but once opened and exposed to oxygen, standard shelf life is best within about 5-7 days.
I have a really bad allergy, what can I eat? Am I safe?
Great question! Here's the real deal on allergies. Pure Batch is 13/14 major allergen free, and so is our facility. We are completely free of: Peanuts (that's a big one), Gluten, Soy, Eggs, Milk, Crustaceans, Fish, Celery, Mustard, Sesame, Sulphites, Lupin, and Molluscs.
Now, here's where it gets interesting. Our All Day Brownie and our Snickerdoodle Truffles are technically 14/14 major allergen free since they do not include any nuts (they do include coconut) BUT they are currently processed in our facility - which DOES process batches with other nuts. We do our very best to avoid any/all cross-contamination but if you have a severe nut allergy, we do not recommend you trying these products YET.
In 2020, we plan to move those products and any others we can to an allergen free co-packer. Please stay tuned for updates on our website and social media. As always, if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.
What kinds of sugar does Mama Millin use in Pure Batch?
We use only low glycemic sugars! Organic Maple Syrup and Organic Coconut Palm Sugar/Syrup in small amounts to add just a touch of sweetness.
How come I don't see dates in your ingredients?
Funny story actually. So, Mama Millin hates dates. Truly. She just simply doesn't like them and outright refuses to use them in her kitchen. To her (and it's an opinion) they have an unpleasant texture and taste.
Typically, companies with products similar to ours rely heavily on dates as a binder, but due to her feelings and opinions she has worked very hard to create a product line without ever touching a date!
What is Sacha Inchi? When I google it, I see that it says Sacha Inchi is sometimes called the Inca Peanut and I'm allergic to peanuts... can you please explain?
All these new superfoods are so exciting but sometimes can be confusing. We get it.
Do NOT worry. We are completely PEANUT FREE.
Sacha Inchi is actually a very powerful seed! More specifically, the seed of a plant that grows in the highlands of Peru. These seeds are very rich in protein, omega 3, 6, and 9, alpha tocopherol vitamin E, carotenoids (vitamin A), and fiber. This superfood is easily digested and unlikely to cause allergies or irritation.
Are Pure Batch products Kosher?
We are presently working on building funds for our certification! Due to the nature of our batches, there is nothing that would prevent us from attaining a Kosher certification and about 95% of our ingredients hold a certification on their own. That said, we know how important the blessing is when designating a product as Kosher. Out of respect for that, until we are formally certified and blessed, we do not advertise or market our batches as Kosher products and leave that up to the discretion of the consumer.
Is Pure Batch safe for diabetics?
Pure Batch is registered dietitian approved for people with diabetes, due to the sugars we use and the way they break down in your body! That said, we always encourage you to speak with your doctor first if you have any concerns about the way our batches may affect you. All nutrition information can be found under each product in the "Shop" section if our site and if you need any further clarification please don't hesitate to ask.
I placed my order — when will it ship?
Shipping is a bit tricky here at Pure Batch because all our batches need to be sent out via priority shipping, which means we don’t deliver on weekends unless there are extenuating circumstances. Mama Millin does her best to work around a weekday delivery schedule, based on shipping location.
Generally, any orders placed Saturday-Monday, will ship out by that coming Wednesday.
Generally, any orders placed Thursday-Friday will ship out between the following Monday-Wednesday.
Now Tuesday is an interesting day to order. Based on where we are shipping, your batches may be shipped out the next day (Wednesday), or Monday of the following week.
You will receive a tracking number via email once your order ships out.
We apologize in advance for any shipping delays out of our control. If you are ever concerned about the quality of a Pure Batch order due to unanticipated shipping delays, please reach out to us and we will do all we can to assist and accommodate you.
