About Our Products
Are your products nut free ?
 
Mitchells Soup Co. does not make any product that we declare as nut free. As ingredients and suppliers do change we recommend that you check your product label for the most accurate information.

* As suppliers and ingredients do change from time to time, we always recommend that you refer to the label of each item you are interested in purchasing. Further information may be available on our website.
Can I eat your product if the ‘Best Enjoyed Before’ date has passed?
 
Our “best enjoyed before’ date lets you know when the ingredients and spices are at their finest in terms of freshness. After that spices may start to lose their flavour and beans may become difficult to fully cook. As always, we recommend thoroughly inspecting the soup mix for elements of nature.
Do you have any gluten free products?
 
At this time we do not have any products we claim as gluten free. As suppliers and ingredients do change from time to time, we always recommend that you refer to the label of each item you are interested in to determine if there is anything in the mix that concerns you. You can also find this information on our website.

Do you have any Vegan or Vegetarian mixes?

We are always looking for feedback on how customers have used our mixes to create their own recipes, so please share your experiences so we can share with others.

Do your products contain MSG?
 
Mitchells Soup never adds MSG to any of its products or ingredients. In Canada when MSG is added to products as an ingredient it is mandatory that it is declared on the label. However MSG does naturally occur in many foods and there are times when it may be naturally present in a raw ingredient.
Our labels are compliant with the labelling laws of Canada.
Fun Fact - Did you know that tomatoes, mushrooms, and parmesan cheese have naturally occurring MSG?

What are 'elements of nature'?
 
All of our ingredients are high quality and have been cleaned multiple times. However, elements of nature are the little bits of things from nature that occasionally have not been sorted out of field harvested ingredients such as beans/legumes and grains.

Elements of nature would include things like small twigs and leaves.

What is the shelf life of your products?
 
Products vary in shelf life, but most of our soup mixes have a shelf life of 12 months. The best before date is located on the back label of your mix.
What is the sodium content in your products?

Where do you source your ingredients from?
 
Many of our ingredients are sourced right here in Canada from local bean, wheat, and legume farmers. As many of the ingredients for our ethnic flavored mixes are not grown in Canada, we also purchase products grown in other regions of the world.
