Shelf Life

HOW DOES OUR GUACAMOLE STAY FRESH & GREEN FOR 2 MONTHS?

 

For the first 8 months in business, shelf-life testing gave our preservative-free guacamole a 7 day shelf-life. After a year of research and development, thanks to HPP (High Pressure Processing), Guac Shop Original, Spicy and Opamole guacamole have a 60 day shelf-life and both the Mild & Spicy Locomole have a 75 day shelf-life.

 

Shelf-life testing was conducted at Ohio State University over a 90 day period. HPP uses intense, cold pressure to kill bacteria and stop the aging process in refrigerated foods. The flavor is not affected by HPP unlike other guacamoles on the market that use preservatives to extend the shelf-life.

 

Our guacamole is prepared, packaged, sealed by our team and then HPPed within 24 hours. Once the film seal is broken, the guacamole is good for another 6 days.
