I was wondering if you had cans of food that don’t have soy in them and are in BPA free cans?! It would be nice to be able to buy your organic products without the dangerous chemicals in them.
I find them at Walmart, as we don’t have a major health food chain here.
Thanks for your questions about soy and BPA in our can liners. As of this writing all of our can liners are “BPA Free” with the exception of our soups which we are working to get transitioned as well. A key point that you need to know is that because science now has such sophisticated methods of measurement and BPA is so pervasive, it is virtually impossible for any can liner to truly be “BPA Free”. The wording that scientists who are working on this issue are comfortable with is “BPA Non Intent” meaning they didn’t put any BPA in there but if you look hard enough you can probably find it. That’s a little awkward as a description and it’s the reason that we are hesitant to label our cans “BPA Free” even though they are the same as brands that use that description on their cans.
What you can know is there are no better solutions for can labeling out there than the ones we are using right now.
Because soy is an allergen, it must be declared on label if a product contains soy. Our natural flavors do not contain soy or its derivatives.
We appreciate your diligence in seeking the healthiest food options and appreciate you purchasing Wild Oats.
Thanks for this information. I greatly appreciate your honesty and the in-depth information in regards to “BPA” or “BPA Free” can liners.
I love your canned beans and that they are offered for such a great price at Walmart.
Thanks so much for your support Karsten! We appreciate you!
These are a staple in my meals! love the price too!
I just opened my first can of Wild Oats Organic Black Beans which I add to my baked beans. The contents of the can yielded approximately a Half cup of black beans and water!!!!
Not satisfied with the quality and quantity of the beans.
I will NEVER purchase this product again.
AND it cost more than any other brand that I ever purchased!!!!
Do does wildoats add any fat to the beans when cooking them? I don’t see it on the label but you can never be sure.
No, we don’t add any fat to our beans during cooking. Thus, they are great for vegetarians to enjoy. We hope you are enjoying this!
Yet, another can of undercooked and uncookable beans. If eating undercooked beans are dangerous why aren’t these being recalled?
A complete waste of money!
Because we have received some complaints on some of our canned beans, we conducted a thorough investigation. We found that the 2014 crop year of beans had a lot of variability in terms of hardness and quality. We pulled together a team to conduct some tests on those beans and determined that the quality was a result of the beans, and not the canning process. We are now processing the 2015 crop beans this month. On all loads we will be conducting a soaking and processing test in our food lab to make sure we catch any culprits before they end up on a store shelf.
I love all of your products! I am so glad to start seeing beans from you on the shelves, too.
I have a question about the beans prior to canning. Are they soaked for at least 8 hours before being cooked and canned? If so, is this the same process used with all of your canned beans?
Thank you so much!
Hi Alysa! The beans are soaked to obtain a level of firmness, but we cannot guaranteed that it is for at least 8 hours. Thanks for your question!
Low in sodium as well.
Where are your black beans produced? Are they grown in USA?
Hi Larry – Yes, they are grown in the USA. Thanks for reaching out!
I recently noticed these, and other canned beans, are “produced in a facility that handles wheat.” Are these facilities using the same conveyor belts, or are thr product lines quite segregated during manufacture? As someone living with celiac disease, I’m wondering if there are any plans to eliminate these types of allergens from your products where possible?
Hi Brian! At this time, none of our products are certified gluten free. Products may be made in a shared facility with wheat, milk, egg, tree nuts, peanuts and soy. We do scrub down our lines, however we cannot guarantee 100% that there may not be microscopic cross contamination. Thanks for your feedback and we will carefully take it into consideration!
Are your beans GMO free
Yes, all certified organic products are GMO-free. Thanks for reaching out!
I use to buy my wild oats organic black beans, at Walmart! Unfortunately they have discontinue carrying it and only have their own brand. Can you tell me where I can find your brand? I’ll appreciate your replay.
Hi Wilma! We are expanding to new retailers as quickly as possible and will let our wonderful customers know where to shop as soon as we can! Thanks for reaching out!
