we’re here to answer your questions
Sometimes you just have questions. That’s why we’re here.
WHAT IS HIGH PRESSURE PROCES (HPP)?
We love raw foods, but everything that is good for you is also good for bacteria and can make you or your baby very sick. High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a cold processing technique by which our pouches are introduced into a vessel and subjected to a high level of isostactic pressure transmitted by water. In short, the pouch goes into a chamber, the chamber is pumped full of ice-cold water to increase pressure. The pressure kills the bacteria and makes our baby food safe for your little nugget. Since the water is ice cold, the baby food preserves its nutrients and active (good) enzymes. HPP kills the bad while preserving the good.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS?
As our baby food is never heated, the good stuff like beta-carotene, antioxidants like Vitamin C, and other nutrients are still naturally present and available for your growing little one. Our bodies need these active enzymes to aid in digestion and absorb other nutrients. These are not found in cooked or processed foods, only raw fruits and vegetables.
WHY DOES IT COST MORE THAN OTHER BABY FOODS?
The main reason is that it is fresh and perishable. Most baby foods are treated with heat pasteurization (HSTS). HSTS heats the juice to 90-140ºC for 25-30 seconds. This destroys most of the nutrients and changes the flavor and color. Baby foods treated with HSTS can be shelf stable, without refrigeration, for months and even years. Our baby food is never heat-treated and always needs to be kept cool, under 40ºF.
We use only the highest quality organic and non-GMO ingredients, and take great care to ensure that if we would not use it in our kitchen at home for ourselves and our families, it does not go into our baby foods. In fact, our standards goes far beyond the standard organic certification and non-gmo verification, because we test for the presence of 45 different potential contaminants in our raw produce to make sure that So Good baby food is the cleanest, safest food for your baby.
The final reason is the pressure needed to make the baby food safe to eat. Preserving the nutritional value through a method called high pressure processing (or HPP) is also expensive but important process as it kills bacteria without killing nutrients. It keeps you safe and means that our baby foods are safe to consume for your precious baby!
DO YOU SHIP NATIONWIDE?
Absolutely! We currently ship to the lower 48 states. We pack our pouches with love in recycled cardboard boxes with environmentally-friendly insulation and recyclable frozen gel packs to keep your products chilled during shipping.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY SO GOOD BABY FOOD?
Keep your pouches chilled to maintain freshness until the Enjoy By date stamped on the back. 33 to 41 degrees Fahrenheit is cool! A good rule of thumb is to think of your So Good Baby products like dairy and yogurt and apply similar logic to their handling.
HOW ARE SO GOOD BABY FOODS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER BABY FOODS?
Our baby food is made with only pure, organic, non-GMO fruits and veggies, and carefully crafted with unconditional love. Nothing added. Ever. Since we believe it’s important for mom to feel good about what she gives her baby, we placed a big window on the pouch. And because we don’t believe organic certification is enough and never compromise on food safety, we go the extra mile by having a third party lab test our ingredients, before we use them.
DOES SO GOOD BABY CONTAIN GLUTEN, SOY OR DAIRY?
Nope. Nada. Zilch.
ARE SO GOOD BABY FOODS NON-GMO VERIFIED?
Absolutely. Not only are we Organic Certified and Non-GMO verified, we make So Good Baby in our own certified organic facility. This allows us to follow best-in-class sourcing and manufacturing practices that result in a product that is beyond organic when it comes to safety and quality.
WHERE CAN YOU BUY SO GOOD BABY FOODS?
IS YOUR POUCH RECYCLABLE?
As part of our Do So Good brand DNA, taking care of the environment is a major priority. Whenever the option is available, we chose materials that are better for Mama Earth. Currently, our So Good Baby cap is fully recyclable. While pouches currently on the market are not able to be recycled, we are working closely with our manufacturer to change this. However, you should still feel good about your purchase as pouches produce a significantly smaller environmental footprint than traditional jar baby foods, both glass and plastic. Their lighter weight and size allows for more efficient packing and transportation, as well as more efficient disposal. Know that this is important to us, too. Stay tuned for updates on our pouch recycling initiative coming so soon!
HOW SHOULD I PACK THE POUCHES WHEN I'M ON THE GO?
A good rule of thumb: treat your So Good pouches similarly as you would other perishable product you feed your baby, like breast milk or yogurt. It is a good idea to keep it in an insulated pouch with an ice pack if you’ll be running around and want to make sure you have something yummy and nutritious to give your kiddo.
