Storage and handling tips:
Optimum storage is at normal room temperature conditions. After opening, reseal unused contents with plastic recloseable lid. For best results, contents should be used immediately after opening. However, when protected from moisture, product has been found acceptable up to 1 week after opening. Please note: #10 cans are sold by weight, not volume. Some settling may have occurred due to shipping, handling or variations in the product density.

For best flavor and nutrition, keep cans constantly stored at 70° or lower. Once opened, keep in air tight containers in dark cool places. To learn more about how long you can expect food to store see our Shelf Life Article.

Packaged with an oxygen absorber in a #10 stainless steel can that is double-enameled to prevent aging and rust. Includes plastic lid. #10 can dimensions: 7” high X 6.25” diameter.
