Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy frozen vs. fresh?
The simple answer: Frozen patties are more flavorful.
Here’s why: Fresh patties are formed by the same methods as frozen, but frozen locks in freshness. The longer the patties sit, the more moisture is lost. This can be seen by the amount of juice pooled in the bottom of the bag or box. Temperature also affects fresh product more—the higher the temperature, the greater the moisture loss.
Patties are quick-frozen within minutes. All of the natural flavor and juices are locked inside the pattie until it is cooked so that your first bite is packed full of juicy flavor.
Should I cook your products from frozen or thaw them first? Why?
Our products are formulated for convenience, consistency and maximum flavor. We recommend cooking from a frozen state, directly from freezer to grill. No additional time required, no mess to clean up.
