What is the shelf life of the Halwa?
12 months in ambient condition (no refrigeration or freezing required or suggested) without any added preservatives. This has been tested in third party laboratories.
How is shelf life so high without adding preservatives?
Firstly, we use a safe and innovative sterilization packaging technology to ensure high shelf life for our halwa. Secondly, our primary packaging material is multi-layered, making it impermeable to any organisms, and is sourced from one of the world's top manufacturers. Lastly, we use high quality ingredients that retain their freshness over time. These three factors help in increasing the shelf life significantly and retaining freshness of the halwa.
Other brands such as Amul also utilize a similar sterilization technology for their tetrapack milk packaging with which milk can be kept at room temperature for 4 months without spoilage.
What is the best way to enjoy Halwa Craft's halwas?
See a video on this here. The best way to enjoy Halwa Craft's halwas is to open the seal and heat it in a microwave oven for 20 seconds and eat it with the spoon provided. The cup is made of completely microwave-safe, food-grade material, that can withstand very high temperatures (much higher than microwave ovens) and does not leach any chemicals in the food whatsoever. Do not heat the cup in a regular OTG oven.
Alternatively, you can take out the contents in a pot and heat it on a stove.
Our halwas can also be enjoyed at room temperature or cold, as per your preference.
Once seal of the cup is opened, store in the refrigerator for upto 2 days.
What is the base of the Halwa?
Why are Halwa Craft's halwa priced at a premium?
Usually packaged consumer foods have high levels of sugar and fillers to reduce the cost and hence pricing. Moreover, to increase shelf life, preservatives are added instead of providing better, sterilized packaging. Although the resulting food product may be tasty and low priced, but it is not nutritious by any means.
We at Halwa Craft believe in providing home-made quality halwa, replacing your effort in making halwa at home with a convenient pack that can be bought anywhere, but also having the same home-made quality & nutrition. Our halwa recipes are exactly the same as home-made recipes that our mothers and grandmothers used, having high proportion of nutritious dry fruits and grains, besides using the best quality brand ingredients such as Amul Desi Ghee. We have also made our halwas as healthy and nutritious as possible, keeping ghee and sugar to as low as possible. As mentioned above, our sterilized packaging innovations ensure freshness and long shelf life without the use of preservatives. We encourage you to try our halwa and feel the difference!
