How should Bare Bones® products be prepared?

The Bare Bones range is easy and convenient to prepare using either a microwave or stove top. Instructions for a 1100W microwave: Simply shake the product and tear open by about 3cm, and place off center in the microwave for 60 seconds. Instructions for the stove: pour the contents of the pouch into a saucepan and place on medium heat, stirring occasionally until warm. Once heated, pour over your meal for a splash of genuinely delicious flavour. Use the product in its entirety after opening.

Which artificial colours, flavours and preservatives are used in Bare Bones® products?

You can enjoy Bare Bones® gravies, sauces and jus knowing that we use simple ingredients.Our current range includes no artificial flavours or colours, and preservatives are only present in the wine used in two of our products: our Red Wine Jus with Rosemary and Thyme, and our Free Range Chicken Gravy with White Wine.

Where should the products be stored?

Bare Bones® gravies, sauces and jus come in single-use pouches, which means they should be used in their entirety rather than resealed and stored for later use. Before being opened, Bare Bones® products should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.

If they have no preservatives, why don’t they need to be refrigerated?

Our production process ensures that the product is safe at an ambient temperature. While there are small amounts of preservatives (sulphites) in the wines used in two of our recipes, there are no other preservatives added to the product.

Why do my Bare Bones® products have some clumps or oil substance at the top of the pouch?

Because we’ve deliberately limited additives in our ingredients, natural separation may occur. Please remember to shake the pouch well before you heat. However, if you are still concerned please feel free to contact us here and we can help.
