Frequently Asked Questions

Products

Not exactly. Now Walden Farms shelf stable salad dressings are even better! We’ve improved taste, texture, included more organic ingredients, real vegetables and natural, high-quality flavors, colors and sweeteners. We’re hard at work in the Walden Farms kitchens bringing some of these changes soon to all our products.
Other than our shelf stable salad dressings, Walden Farms products have not changed. Some of the labels have minor changes reflecting the most up to date regulations.

Consuming & Storing

We recommend that our product be refrigerated after opening and consumed before the best by date.

Allergens & Attributes

Net carbs are carbohydrates that are actually absorbed by the body. On our new shelf stable salad dressing labels, we’ve calculated these for you, by subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols (where applicable) from total carbohydrates. You’ll see that all of our products have zero (or <1) net carbs, so they work really well for the carb counters out there! Because we know so many of our customers are watching carb intake, we will be providing this calculation for the rest of our products too.
Walden Farms products are all gluten free. However, while every precaution is taken with respect to allergens, we cannot guarantee that the risk of cross-contamination is 100% eliminated.
Our team of expert nutritionists in the Walden Farms kitchens carefully selected concentrated natural flavors and plant-based colors to make our products taste great. Walden Farms irresistibly sweet, calorie free products use real fruit & vegetable extracts, cocoa powder and other natural flavors and plant-based colors. Our savory specialties are filled with dozens of herbs and spices, the finest aged vinegar, tamari sauce, lemon concentrate, crushed tomatoes, minced garlic, onion and other concentrated natural flavors. With 50+ years of experience, we’ve learned how to maximize the flavor and minimize the stuff you don’t want, like sugar, fat, calories and net carbohydrates.
Yes, all Walden Farms products labeled as calorie free, zero calories/0 calories meet the FDA’s definition and requirements for this claim. We do have a few products with minimal calories and they are clearly labeled as low calorie.
Trace calories are calories that are present at such a low level that they are considered insignificant. Trace calories from specific ingredients have very little influence on the overall calories in Walden Farms products.
Sugarcane fiber is the fiber of the plant after the sugar has been extracted. This ingredient does not contain any residual sugars.

Certifications

Yes, all Walden Farms products are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union. Walden Farms products that are Kosher and do not contain dairy are marked with an OU Pareve symbol, whereas those that are Kosher and contain dairy are marked OU-D.
While our products are not certified Halal, many of our ingredients happen to be Halal. Halal dietary laws share some commonalities with Jewish dietary laws of kashrut; all of our products are certified Kosher and are produced in a facility that only handles Kosher ingredients.
