FAQ’s: B & B soup mixes are hand packaged using only high quality air and freeze dried vegetables, herbs & spices in every mix.

  • Freeze drying is the best way to preserve vegetables and herbs, better than frozen, canning, or plain air-drying! Freeze dried vegetables retain their color, texture and most important of all, flavor, better than any other method of preserving!
  • All natural ingredients
  • NO Preservatives
  • NO added Salt
  • NO MSG
  • NO artificial colorings or flavorings
  • NO ‘clumps’ of fillers at the bottom of the bag!
  • It is what is LEFT OUT that makes them great
  • Free from preservatives & artificial flavoring
  • Each soup can be made to order for your families' taste by adding a few easy to find fresh ingredients.
  • What is the shelf-life of your soup mixes? The soup mixes have a shelf life of one year. They do not spoil after a year; however, some of the herbs lose their potency. If you want to make them last even longer, when you purchase, put the bag into a Ziploc bag and put in the freezer until you want to make that wonderful soup.
