Your minimum order is only 1 case. You can order 5 days per week, (depending on your delivery lead time) so you can keep lean inventory levels. Our live Customer Service Team, plus local exclusive RC Representation, will ensure excellent customer service and support.
You are purchasing directly from the manufacturer so you will never get the surprise of another product substitution or fresher open coded product.
All of RCFF’s products are open coded with a clearly labeled manufacture date and lot number for 100% ingredient traceability.
If your bases contain meat, why don’t they need to be refrigerated? Should I put them in the refrigerator to ensure flavor and freshness?
Every batch of RCFF’s products goes through a battery of QC tests before being released for sale. All proteins are lab tested to ensure that they meet our demanding microbiological standards. RCFF’s is inspected by the FDA and USDA. One of the tests measures the shelf stability and our custom manufacturing process ensures every batch to the same high quality standards and consistent flavor profile you will come to enjoy. There are several environmental effects that are detrimental to all food products; oxygen, ultraviolet light, moisture and heat. We suggest that you refrigerate your protein bases to keep the flavor as fresh as the day it was made.
Flavor preferences change by geographical region and season, and we diversify our product offerings so you can be assured that you can meet what your customer’s demand. Plus, special menu requests can be met with our diverse line of products.
The moisture content of most vegetables is very high. By using “low moisture” vegetables, the fresh flavor is concentrated to give you the realistic depth of flavor you would expect from fresh vegetables without the added labor expense. Plus, they can be used in a number of ways; produce broths or stocks, use as a rub, seasoning for signature breading or use to season your menu items without adding extra sodium.
RC Whipped Bavarian can be made with ice cold water or ice cold milk (both are freeze stable) and RC Mousse Mixes, RC Pastry Creams and RC Whipped Toppings are freeze/thaw stable. Simply make them up, portion into your serving dish, freeze, and then use as needed. Very food cost friendly.
Yes, RC Bavarian Mixes and Whipped Toppings can be produced with ice cold milk or even ½ water and ½ milk.
Our experts at RCFF’s deem our products Gluten-Free and we even take it a step further by having an independent lab certify every production batch for our Healthy Foundations® Lab Certified Gluten Free products.
For most of our products, you do not need to use the full package at one time and the remaining product can be saved for later. For our dry products in pouches, you can simply roll the package up and secure that it is closed. These products should be stored according to their storage recommendation on the actual package (i.e. ‘Store in a cool, dry place’ or ‘Keep Refrigerated’). Our dry, granular bases do not require refrigeration and should be stored in a cool, dry place. As for our paste bases, we do recommend storing them under refrigeration once the package is opened. Any product should be used within the shelf life stated on the product page.
A reduced sodium product must be a minimum of 25% lower in sodium than the product you are comparing it to – like our Smart Sodium 400 Bases that are 30% lower in sodium than our ‘regular’ bases. Because there is no set number for reduced sodium, be careful when looking at reduced sodium products to find the actual amount of sodium. Some ‘reduced sodium’ products are still fairly high in sodium. Both Low Sodium and Very Low Sodium are defined amounts of sodium in a serving size of a product. Low Sodium products cannot contain more than 140 mg of sodium, and Very Low Sodium products cannot contain more than 35mg of sodium per serving. These numbers do not change between products.
I want to use your gluten free product. Do I have to prepare in a separate kitchen or what is the best way to prepare as to not deviate from gluten-free status?
This can be accomplished in many different ways, from having a separate kitchen to having a gluten-free preparation area in your kitchen. It is our recommendation that you consult with a local gluten-free organization or reach out to national organizations like The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (www.celiaccentral.org) or the Gluten Intolerance Group (www.gluten.net) to find out which method is best for you.
