Beware of the myths that surround a popular and widely used brand name, stouffer stove top.
There are some commonly held assumptions about the company. Carefully consider before you make any purchasing decisions.
Learn what these myths say about products, packaging, and more to help you educate yourself about this popular brand name. It’s time for you to create your impressions of what is inside the package!
#1: “Always buy from big stores”
In general, packaged food from big stores is greener on the planet- because there is more packaging involved in mass production than if it were made in small batches at home with less waste. The more packaging, the more gasses and other nasty stuff can be trapped in plastic and recycled. Also, big stores often have systems for tracking the origin of their food. This is hard to do if you are producing your own product at home.
#2: “The meal is already cooked when you buy it from the store”
You can cook your own meals at home as well as buy a package of Stouffer’s Entrees from your local grocery store. You do have to wait for it to come out of the package, though! This means preparation time for preparing this meal for the family. If you are only making one meal once a week, this might not be such a problem to you.
#3: “If I buy this product, it cannot ever be wasted”
Now, you are beginning to see the picture of how much food gets wasted in industrial and mass production. Even if there is a lot of packaging around it, it is still food- put in there because of its importance to people who eat a lot of packaged foods.
#4: “Chili is always produced in the supermarket”
You might think that only chili would continue to appear on store shelves year after year. Chili has salt, pepper, chili powder and other seasonings that make up the spices. There is no way to preserve the unique flavor of fresh-canned chili without packaging it. You may be able to buy fresh-canned chili from a local farmer or a food co-op, though. By supporting this choice of packaging, you can help people realize that the best food is fresh food!
#5: “All store-bought food is healthier than homemade foods because of their skill in cooking”
While it is true that prepared and cooked meals can be more convenient than cooking your own and having to wait for them to cool down before serving them, there are also other reasons people choose to use packaged foods. They may not be as skillful or experienced with cooking as others and do not have time to cook all of their own meals at home.
#6: “The packaging is recycled”
No matter what kind of plastic is used in the packaging, there is still a lot of energy used in recycling it. Once again, doing this means that less energy and resources are used for the production of a new product. This does not always happen in the commercial setting, though. Some of the packaging used for packaging food for delivery to stores is made of products that contain plastic, which cannot be recycled. This means all of this packaging will end up in landfills, taking up space and creating a lot of greenhouse gasses.
#7: “The food packaged in this box is all pre-made”
The idea that people prefer to use pre-made foods rather than going through the motions of cooking their own meals is true. It may be, though, that they do not have the time to cook their own meals or have no experience doing it. The convenience of using these foods saves them a lot of money and time.
#8: “They package everything in this pan”
The reason they use so much packaging is because they are trying to keep the food fresh and safe. The cooking in this product is actually done at a commercial kitchen, which has its own recipes and specifications for how it should be prepared and packaged. Stouffer’s makes a wide range of different types of food products containing all kinds of meats, sauces and side dishes. They also use their packaging to present and preserve a variety of flavors.
#9: “You must eat packaged foods”
There are many reasons people do not want to use packaged foods. Your personal tastes may be one of the best reasons, but there are others as well.
Having an awareness of the myths surrounding your favorite brands is a great way to educate yourself about what you buy and why it is so important that you understand what goes into every package that is made for your family.
