We do not use any artificial preservatives in any of our products. We produce our products using High Pressure Processing which is an alternative method to using heat or preservatives to maintain freshness.
When do your products expire?
Because each of our products are different, we recommend that you reference the expiration that is printed on the package. The expiration date reflects what we feel is the appropriate age of the product that will provide our customers with the best experience possible.
Why do you use agave and cane sugar?
The organic, fair trade cane sugar that is listed in the ingredient statement of our two chocolate hummus flavors is a less refined sweetener that has been chosen specifically for its strong molasses flavor. It is also referred to as organic sucanat. The organic agave nectar in the chocolate hummus flavors is also used for sweetening, but its flavor profile is closer to that of honey adding warm, caramel notes. These two different sweeteners add their own unique touch to enhance the rich chocolate profile of our sweet spreads.
Can I order HOPE Hummus online?
We are available in select regions of Amazon and Fresh Direct in New York City. We are also available through Door to Door Organics and Mile High Organics in the local Boulder/Denver area.
Can I freeze your hummus?
Yes, you can freeze our hummus. You may see some separation once it thaws but this is completely normal and you can stir it up. The hummus should then be consumed within 7 days of being thawed.
Why do you use citric acid? Is it organic?
Citric Acid is a widely used ingredient in foods, beverages and confectionery treats to impart a pleasant, tart flavor and help control pH. Citric Acid is found naturally in citrus fruits, however the Citric Acid that is added to foods and beverages is generally produced commercially through the microbial fermentation of a carbohydrate. At Hope, the Citric Acid that we add has been produced from a non-GMO carbohydrate source. We choose to use Citric Acid to provide both a distinct citrus flavor and to help maintain the freshness of our hummus.
