Q. What does it mean that M&M Food Market products are "flash frozen"?
A. Flash freezing is a process that preserves the made-from-scratch flavour of our products. Here's how it works. All meats, fish, fruits and vegetables contain a high proportion of water. A home freezer gradually freezes this water to form large ice crystals that pierce the cell walls of the food. Upon thawing, the food often becomes soft and mushy. However, flash freezing chills food at extremely low temperatures, within a couple of minutes, thereby preventing the formation of large ice crystals. It also preserves the natural texture and flavour of M&M Food Market food and, during cooking, all the great taste is allowed to come through fully. Click the link below to learn more.
Q. Does M&M Food Market have products that are low in fat?
A. Yes, we carry many products that are lower in fat and are suitable for fat-reduced diets. Some of these products include: Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Haddock or Sole Fillets, Pork Tenderloin, and a wide assortment of vegetables. Visit the Our Food section to view the fat content for each product.
Q. What does it mean if a product is "Exclusive to M&M Food Market"?
A. This means that only M&M Food Market and no other retailers sell this product. We're constantly working with suppliers to create new and innovative products to bring to our customers across Canada.
Q. How long can I keep M&M Food Market products in my freezer?
A. The shelf life of each of our products will vary. To find the shelf life of a product, simply speak with one of our Meal Advisors, next time you're in the store.
Q. Can I microwave or barbecue a product even though it's not recommended on the package?
A. Best bet is to follow the instructions on the package. We've thoroughly tested all of our cooking methods to ensure you'll be happy with the finished product. However, if you've tried an alternative cooking method that has worked well for you, please tell us. We'd love to hear it.
Q: Can I thaw and serve vegetables and meals that are fully cooked without warming them?
A: You may be tempted to, but don’t. All of the vegetables and prepared meals we sell must be warmed through according to the package directions to ensure that they reach the correct temperature. That’s the most important thing you can do to ensure a delicious, safe eating experience.
Q: Can I trust that frozen foods are handled safely?
A: Absolutely. In Canada, food producers have to follow stringent rules, and we’re no exception. We prepare our dishes with the utmost vigilance — we are committed to safe food-handling practices and ensure that we go above and beyond Health Canada guidelines. We also work closely with all of our suppliers to develop and test every product you see on our shelves. They’re our partners in upholding high safety standards; it’s just that simple.
