Know your packaging
With Vacuum Sealing, the air is removed from the package via a vacuum chamber and the package is heat sealed, providing a superior product with little moisture loss and extended shelf-life.
Sealed to keep your product fresher longer, and to keep it contamination free.
Read on for more facts about the way your meat is packaged, and how it will ensure you get a great product from us, no matter what!
Prevents Oxidation & Discoloration
Your meat will retain the same color and taste/smell profile as the moment it was cut thanks to the superiority of our vacuum packaging methods.
Scent of Fresh Beef
You may notice a slight "off odor" when opening the bag; this is because of the absolute fool proof seal, in which no air can get in or out.
This means that the scent of the fresh beef remains with the meat from the moment it was vacuum sealed. For some, you may recognize this as the smell processing fresh meat, for others; it is not reminiscent of their grocery store purchases and can be considered "too strong."
Neither view is wrong, but please just understand that this aroma is completely normal and will dissipate within minutes of being exposed to oxygen, this is why it's important to let your meat "bloom."
Let it Breathe
After opening the vacuum package, let your meat air out for a short period of time. It will regain color after its prolonged lack of oxygen. This is called "bloom."
No Freezer Burn
Vacuum sealing eliminates moisture loss by preventing oxygen from drying the meat and protects against freezer burn.
Re-Freeze Your Meat!
Because of our packaging, if you defreeze it property (read, in the refrigerator...) you can re-freeze it with no loss in quality!
That's because the concern with refreezing meat is a quality issue, not a safety issue. Usually meat that has been thawed will lose moisture... but that doesnt happen if the beef is vacuum sealed.
