Refund Policy

Satisfaction Guaranteed. 


Over the spring and summer of 2022 we stress tested our Sweet & Salty product offering at the UFA Farmer's Market in Lethbridge by taking our product to the market every Saturday Morning and offering it for sale between 8 am and 1 pm. During many summer Saturdays we experienced hot temperatures in the 30C range and found that our Koji Ferments stood up very well under these hot "heat" conditions in transport and while on display. From the time we bottle our product we keep it refrigerated.  


Since we deliver a product that contains live microbes, a sustained temperatures of 46 degrees C (115 F) can kill the microbes in a few minutes. Therefore, be aware of extreme heat and keep our koji ferments cool in a ride to slow down the activity of the microbes. Freezing it stops the activity cold. In fact you can freeze and thaw our Sweet Grain Amasake 3X with no adverse effects. 

Our Mighty Meaty Marinade should be good for up to one year as it is comprised of Koji Rice and Pink Salt. Amasake is more perishable, with a best before date of 2 weeks. The activity of the koji malt will not stop unless frozen and so in about 14 days out of the freezer in the fridge will lead to a souring of the Amasake. This does not indicate that it has gone bad, simply that you have a "sour" Amasake that is good for baking, braising or in dressings. "As one expert Chef's said "Over the course of many years, we have used it to do everything from culturing cream, to making butter, to acting as the hydration element in breads and pastries."
