“In the “Optimal Food Process”, the food is packed under a strong vacuum that permits pasteurization at much lower temperatures than normal. Therefore we apply much less heat and for a shorter period of time than other pasteurization methods, thus retaining more of the original flavor and texture of the ingredients. Once the vacuum seal is broken, which is easily done by removing our peel away foil, our Gourmet to Go varieties should be refrigerated and consumed like other fresh food."

The St. Dalfour difference
French chefs have created St Dalfour all natural fruit spreads from an old recipe handed down over generations in the heart of the Loire Valley.
Synonymous with good taste, St Dalfour spreads do not contain any added sugar, only the natural sweetness or concentrated grape juice. There are no additives, colorings, flavorings, or preservatives, just 100% fruit, making St Dalfour spreads ideal for those with special dietary requirements.
Not only are St Dalfour spreads ideal with toast and croissants, but are a delicious fruit complement to cold cuts of meat or poultry, in the same way that cranberry sauce suits turkey. Try Cranberry with Blueberry Conserves with your next plate of cold meat.

Gourmet reviewer gives it thumbs-up
“Next time you’re on the go and you look at the options—fast-food chains, bad sandwiches and empty-calorie snack food—you’ll be glad you have a can or two of Gourmet On The Go.”
“Wild Salmon With Vegetables (gluten free) is the heartiest and most savory dish: big chunks of of salmon, potatoes, carrots, flageolet beans, red and green bell peppers. You can see and taste the dill seasoning, and a hint of the garlic. The salmon has a cooked salmon, rather than a canned salmon, flavor. Calories per can: 210. A favorite. Serving suggestions: with sliced cucumbers, onions and tomatoes; in an avocado half; stuffed in a red or yellow pepper; with added black olives; with St. Dalfour Pineapple Mango Preserves.
Couscous (vegetarian—photo at top of page). Couscous is one of the hits of the collection. Not only is it attractive, with large chunks of red pepper, dark red kidney beans, yellow cork kernels and dark raisins, but there’s a sweet-and-sour tanginess in the vinaigrette, made from extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, and parsley. Nicely seasoned, it ties with salmon as our favorite. Calories per can: 390. "
