Is there gluten in RAGÚ® sauces? Do you have a list of your gluten-free varieties?

Common ingredients that may contain gluten are rye, wheat, oats, barley, noodles and pasta prepared with any of the previously mentioned grains. HVP and TVP flavorings are likely to contribute gluten as well, however, if they contain any gluten, the source would always be listed in the ingredient statements.

Since product formulations change from time to time, we do not have a printed list of products that identifies those products that contain specific allergens or gluten. The best advice we can give you is to check the ingredient list on the label. Ingredient allergens as defined by FDANSWER: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, seafood, wheat, eggs, and milk or dairy, as well as any ingredient that may contain gluten are always listed on the label. If gluten is present, it is clearly listed in plain language on the ingredient label (i.e., wheat flour, rye, barley, oats, and malt). Malt is a barley-based ingredient.

We do not publish a list of gluten-free varieties. Therefore, we suggest reading all ingredient labels carefully. As always, if you cannot determine whether the product contains the ingredient in question, we recommend that you don't use it.

How should my jar of RAGÚ® Sauce be stored?

Always store your unopened jar of RAGÚ ® sauce in a cool, dry place. We recommend that you use the sauce by the “Best if Used By” date. We should note that refrigerating unopened jars will NOT lengthen shelf life.

Importantly, DO NOT USE SAUCE IF SAFETY BUTTON IS RAISED BEFORE OPENING.

The product life is limited once the jar is opened due to several factors: amount of time jar remained open at room temperature, amount of exposure to bacteria and other contaminants after opening i.e., airborne bacteria, improper food handling techniques, temperature of refrigerator (may vary significantly). We always recommend that you tightly cap any unused portion of sauce and refrigerate it immediately; freezing is not recommended as product may separate during thaw.

Tomato-based sauces should be used within 3-5 days after opening with proper refrigeration. Cheese-based sauces should be used within three (3) days after opening with proper refrigeration.

How do I know if the product I have in my pantry is still safe to eat?

The "Best If Used By Date" is stamped on the top of every jar of RAGÚ ® sauce. This is the date that assures the product's optimum quality and freshness. We recommend that you use your product by this date.

Is the RAGÚ ® product packaging recyclable?

Our glass and plastic jars are both recyclable.

I have a great new product idea for RAGÚ® Brand. Where can I submit it?

Unfortunately, our policy does not allow us to accept any ideas/suggestions for new products varieties or promotions.
