how we make it:

beech-nut® naturals & organics purées

start with real
fruits & veggies

We select only quality ingredients, sourcing locally whenever we can.

purée cold to protect
flavor & nutrients

We aim to process our ingredients as little as possible, to protect nutrients and flavor as we blend our combinations. So, we purée cold before cooking.

remove air to seal
in freshness

Taking the air out means we don’t have to add artificial preservatives to keep the good stuff in, like vibrant color, fragrant aroma and thick texture.

gently cook to keep
natural color & texture

We use indirect heat to cook our real food (like how you’d use a double boiler) so that the flavor and nutrients don’t get watered down. Cook time varies according to the ingredients; you wouldn’t cook a pear and a sweet potato the same length of time, so neither do we.

pour into glass jars
& portable pouches

Beech-Nut® was the first U.S. baby food to use recyclable glass jars, which protect the taste, smell or texture of our foods. We also have BPA-free pouches for little ones on the go.
