Answers to some of the most asked questions that we think you will find useful 🙌🏼I've got more questions!
What makes your dressings suitable for the Keto or Paleo Diet?
When searching for an approved dressing, be sure not to just check the macros but also the ingredients of the dressing itself.
Rapeseed oil (Canola), sunflower oil, and sugar should be avoided and are present in most store bought dressings.
Vegetable and Seed oils are inflammatory and we believe are best avoided in the pursuit of Optimal Health and Wellness. Hunter & Gather dressings only use 100% olive oil and no blends of oils. They are also low in carbohydrates and refined sugar-free but packed with great monounsaturated fats so are perfect for a Paleo, Keto, Low Carb or Real Food Lifestyle.
Where do the olives come from that go into your dressings?
The olives used to make the oil in our dressings are exclusively from the Córdoba Region in Southern Spain and they support the farming communities of the Cordoba region who have been olive farmers for generations.
Do you use Extra Virgin Olive Oil in your dressings?
To make our dressings we use light olive oil since it does not have as intense a flavour as extra-virgin olive oil, which is very strong. The oil that we use is obtained by a physical extraction method and we do not use any hexane chemicals or solvents in making the oil.
Is the Olive Oil Lab tested for purity?
Yes, every batch of olive oil is lab-tested for pesticide residue and heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, iron and copper. We test for a number of common pesticides in every batch of oil made including Oxyflurofen, Chlorpyrifos (one of the most widely used pesticides) and Bromopropylate.
Each batch of the olive oil is also analysed for its fatty acid structure, wax count and acidity levels, all of which help to determine the quality of the oil and to confirm that it is 100% olive oil.
Do you use free-range eggs?
Yes! They are also British and sourced from St. Ewe farms in Cornwall.
We never use powder eggs like the majority of other food brands as they typically have undeclared chemical flow agents in them.
Does your Ranch dressing contain any dairy?
No, All of our dressings and mayonnaise ranges are free from milk, including milk powders, whey, and anything derived from milk.
How should I store Hunter & Gather dressings?
Our ranch dressing is an ambient product (no need to refrigerate until it is opened).
We also recommend not storing in the fridge until you open your dressing. This prevents it from getting too cold and potentially solidifying.
Once opened and in use, store as high as possible in the fridge door. Do not store low down in your fridge or at the back of your fridge (the coldest areas that can cause it to solidify).
We suggest your fridge is set no lower than 4 deg C.
Why has my dressing separated / split / gone hard or really thick?
Like all of our products, the dressings are made with natural real food ingredients without any nasty chemical preservatives or thickeners. This means that the dressings will separate if not shaken for a while, this is completely normal and with a good shake, the dressing will come back together.
Once opened we recommend storing the dressings in the fridge door as high as possible, as the dressing is made with 100% olive oil, it can be subject to thickening due to the colder temperature.
Give the bottle a good shake before using out of the fridge.
How long does Hunter & Gather dressings last?
Hunter & Gather dressings are best used before the ‘best before end’ date that is printed on the side of the bottle.
