What is Seitan?
Seitan is made from the protein of wheat. The word comes from the Japanese words
“sei”, meaning “to be, become, made of”, and “tan”, as in tanpaku, which means
“proteins”. Freely translated: “made of proteins”.
More than 1,000 years ago, seitan was prepared by Buddhists in China to replicate meat
dishes, and was also used in Japan as a substitute for meat or fish.
Can your products be frozen?
Yes our products can be frozen and will last atleast 3-6months in the freezer. The sausage skins are delicate and are fragile when wet so we suggest cooking them from frozen to stop the skins from tearing when cooking. The Smokey Rasher are best defrosted together as they are hard to separate when frozen. If you order a whole bunch of products and don't expect to eat them within a week, I'd suggest freezing them.What is the average shelf life?
All products will have a best before date on the front of the packet. Most products have a shelf life fresh of 4 weeks after the date we make them. This date will vary depending on when you purchased after the date we made them, some supermarkets will sell frozen and they will have a best before frozen date on the front. Some of the Seitan products will have a longer shelf life 6-8 weeks after the date they are made. Once opened the products will last about 4-5 days, this timeframe may vary slightly. If you don't think you will eat all the product you can always freeze it to cook at a later time.
