  • Which of your products are nut-free?

    Many of our dishes are made without nuts, however we cannot guarantee that our dishes are allergen-free as the facility where they are produced is not certified allergen-free. Our labeling indicates as much and we take every precaution to avoid contamination.

Retail Product Packaging

  • Do I need to put the bag on a plate in the microwave?

    Just follow the cooking instructions on the paper pouch, making sure to check the microwave wattage for the best cooking. All our tests are conducted using an 1100 watt microwave oven.

    In a conventional oven, the steam pouch needs to be positioned on a tray rather than placed directly on an oven rack.

  • Can the steam pouch be recycled?

    Some community recycling programs allow the entire steam pouch to be recycled while others do not, so consumers should check with their local recycling program for options.

  • What is the (steam pouch) bag made from?

    Our paper steam pouch is very similar to a conventional roasting pouch: it uses unbleached paper sandwiched to a lining of BPA-free Mylar film that is specially designed to gently steam each entrée, locking in flavor and aroma.

  • Is your packaging recyclable?

    Yes. Our outer box is made from 100% recycled paperboard with 75% post-consumer waste; the steam pouch contains unbleached paper made from 20% pre-consumer waste and uses soy or waterless inks.

Luvo CheckIt

  • Why is the Luvo CheckIt app not able to recognize a few of my scanned items?

    To ensure we provide users with the most accurate, nutrition-focused guidance, we have strict guidelines to ensure our database produces the most reliable ratings on the market. The Luvo CheckIt app is currently able to scan the UPC codes of hundreds of thousands of packaged food products in our extensive database; which we will be updating on a frequent basis in order to include new products and to expand our wide range of coverage.

  • Why haven’t I been able to scan some of my Canadian packaged food products?

    To ensure we provide users with the most accurate, nutrition-focused guidance, we have strict guidelines to ensure our database produces the most reliable ratings on the market. With that in mind, Luvo CheckIt has launched first with a focus on the United States. We will be expanding our coverage of hundreds of thousands of UPS codes to include Canadian based products in January of 2017 and look forward to providing the same reliable ratings for our Canadian customers.
