IngredientsWhat’s in a name?
Our name includes the word fresh, and that's because freshness is something we take very seriously.
Providing our customers with the highest quality ingredients while ensuring sustainability for both our suppliers and the environment is central to our philosophy at HelloFresh.
Where Our Ingredients Come From
We want our customers to be able to make restaurant-quality food in their own home. One of the key ways we make sure this is possible it by providing varied, high-quality ingredients that are packed with flavor. We use reliable, quality-controlled suppliers that regularly provide ingredients to the finest restaurants and whose products are not widely available in supermarkets.
We work with trusted, local suppliers, and we try to use as few imported, non-local ingredients as possible. We believe that knowing who and where we get our meat, fish and produce from is the only way to guarantee quality.
We design our recipes to incorporate seasonal products whenever possible. This has environmental benefits, but most importantly means your meals are that much more delicious.
Our recipes are designed to give you all the energy and nutrients you need, without excessive or unnecessary calories. A typical HelloFresh meal contains about 500-800 functional, delicious calories.
Protein is an essential dietary component, and is crucial in keeping strong muscles and a healthy lifestyle. Our boxes always include a good protein source, coming from meat, fish, dairy, legumes, and nuts to keep you lean and mean.
Fruit and vegetables
Fresh fruits and vegetables provide us with essential vitamins and other valuable nutrients, and getting these benefits from unprocessed ingredients is ideal. More importantly, they are delicious!
Carbohydrates, dietary fiber and whole grains
For pasta, rice, and other carbohydrate-rich ingredients, we always make sure that there is a high proportion of whole grain, fiber, and nutrients to keep you fueled and energized.
We design our recipes to contain a low saturated fat content. Some of our ingredients include unsaturated fats (for example avocados, nuts, cold water fish, oil), which are key to ensuring a strong immune system and can lower cholesterol, minimizing the risk of heart disease.
Our unique shipping boxes are able to keep your food at the proper temperature, and were designed with the environment in mind. They contain recycled materials wherever possible, and our gel packs are biodegradable. Instead of using styrofoam, we've gone with biodegradable wool liner materials, so you can feel better about the way your HelloFresh food comes to you!
