Purees

Our purees are 100% pure, with no additives

As an ingredient supplier to the bakery industry, Stahlbush is one of the largest processors of frozen pumpkin and sweet potato purees in the industry. These purees are used for items such as pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, cookies, muffins, breads, soups, drinks and side dishes.

Quality control is a high priority in our production process. For every lot processed, we run tests to ensure the best results for moisture, grit, pH, brix, total plate count per gram, texture, color and flavor, as requested. Additionally, we have a program in place for pathogen screening to ensure food safety. In fact, your quality assurance staff is always welcome to visit our facility.

Our processing techniques deliver consistently higher solids. Our puree product is 100 percent pure, with no additives. Our percentage of solids means higher quality, higher yield and distinct cost savings for bulk ingredient customers.

Food Safety

Stahlbush production practices and final products consistently exceed the industry’s toughest food safety standards. Food safety is an integral part of how we operate on a day-to-day basis. We are committed to transparency in our farming practices and traceability throughout our vertical growing and processing operation. Our history of servicing industries such as the Japanese food market and baby food companies led us early on to develop the highest possible safety standards in food processing.

In addition to compliance with state and federal regulations, Stahlbush Island Farms invites independent third party inspection of our food safety, sanitation and documentation procedures. Stahlbush is proud to consistently score in the “excellent” range of food safety audits completed by Cook & Thurber.

At Stahlbush, we continue to increase our spending on pathogen testing, education and training every year. Included in our food safety program are

  • Routine testing for pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E Coli
  • Highest standards for allergen control and prevention of cross contamination
