bettergoods Sauces Featuring Upcycled Peppers Are Positive For The Planet & Positively Delicious

Upcycling food is a time-honored tradition based on the philosophy of using all of what you have. It's about doing more with less, and elevating all food to its highest and best use. Most of all, upcycled food is about reducing food waste by creating delicious food products out of the nutrients that slip through the cracks of our food system. But what is 'upcycled food' technically? A team of experts from Harvard Law School, Drexel University, World Wildlife Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, and ReFED, officially agreed on the following definition for “upcycled food” in 2020 for use in policy and research.

Upcycled Sauces

Upcycled foods use ingredients that otherwise would not have gone to human consumption, are procured and produced using verifiable supply chains, and have a positive impact on the environment.
