Using Our Products

+
How can I substitute Kite Hill products for dairy products in an existing recipe?

Just about any recipe that calls for dairy yogurts, cream cheeses, or ricotta can be made using our almond milk versions. We recommend using the plain unsweetened (in the case of our almond milk yogurt) and plain cream cheese as opposed to the flavored versions when swapping in Kite Hill for the first time. You can substitute these ingredients 1:1 for their dairy counterparts. As all Kite Hill products are made without artificial preservatives, note that anything you make with them should be stored refrigerated and not at room temperature.

+
Do you have recipes using Kite Hill products?

Yes! Head over to our recipe page for some inspiration!

+
How long do your products last once opened?

All of our products are made without artificial preservatives and should be consumed prior to their best-by dates or within seven days of opening, whichever is sooner.

+
How long does your pasta last? How do I store it?

Our pastas are shipped to stores frozen and, in most cases, thawed when placed on shelf. Retailers should sticker our pastas with 30-day Best By dates when placing them on shelf; we recommend that you use or freeze our pastas by the stickered date. In the absence of a sticker, we recommend using or freezing our pastas within 1-2 weeks of purchase.

Frozen pasta is best consumed within 270 days of the production date. You can find this date on the edge of the plastic container as a 5-digit number such as 20315. The first two digits are the year of production, in this case 2020, and the next three digits are the julian date of production, in this case 315 or November 10th. This item would be best consumed by 315+270-366=219, or August 7th. Please contact us with any questions!
