In Our Products There are no Preservatives.
The philosophy that inspired the formulation of all our Recipes has always been aimed at pursuing the simplicity of flavors and genuineness. This meant not to compromise on Quality of Raw Materials and to choose the most simple but traditional Preparation Processes. The conservation method chosen by Fattorie Umbre is pasteurization: when the recipe is prepared it is quickly placed inside the jars and hermetically sealed. Immediately after that the pasteurization takes place and consists in keeping the product at a given temperature for a given period of time so as to eliminate the microorganisms responsible of food spoilage. Through this process, and without the addition of other chemical preservatives, we can guarantee our products a shelf life of 30 months.
