Looking for answers? Here are some of the questions that we receive most frequently. We hope we can answer most of them here.
Not at the present time, unfortunately. However, we are always looking at packaging technologies that will allow us to preserve the quality of our product and be fully recyclable. Our main concern is to deliver quality products and avoid ice build-up, dehydration and clumping, and therefore, our bags are made with two materials glued together, in order to provide a full protective barrier for our frozen fruits and veggies.
The NON-GMO certification is obtained for each production location. We currently have 1 plant that is certified NON-GMO, and all 3 of our plants will be soon.
Fruits and vegetables don’t naturally contain gluten. Our facilities do not handle any products that contain gluten.
Although the use of pesticides is highly regulated in Organic Agriculture, some specific pesticides are permitted.
Some fruits and veggies need pesticide application in order to protect them from harmful predators (e.g.: bacteria, fungi, bugs, mold) that will simply destroy the fruit (either while it is growing or after it is harvested).

There is none. The nutritional value of an organic or tested for pesticide residue fruit does not differ. These designations refer to the amount of pesticide residue on the fruit once it is harvested.

There is no difference in the nutritional value of a conventional fruit vs a tested for pesticide residue fruit. The main difference is that we guarantee that there is no pesticide residue on the tested for pesticide residue fruits, whereas conventional fruits might have pesticide residue that is within the limits approved by the regulating authorities.

Every batch of fruits and veggies is tested twice for pesticide residue – once at the farm prior to bulk loading, and again at our facility prior to packaging! At Nature’s Touch, our goal is to limit your exposure to pesticide residues when enjoying our frozen fruit and that is why our highly qualified team uses latest generation equipment to test for a minimum of 260 of the most commonly known pesticides. There are no regulations governing how tested for pesticide residue products must be grown, but we adhere to an international standard for testing pesticide residue: www.AOAC.org.
