Based on the research obtained during our review, we found that Nuvona Premium Foods has paid a lot of attention to detail. Their foods are not only delicious, but the quality of packaging and overall experience is why our research group chose Nuvona Premium Foods as the “2013 Premium Choice Award” recipient.

 

Amongst our group, there were testers of all ages, backgrounds and cultures and every single one of them, including the children were pleased with how Nuvona Premium Foods were offered. With instructions worded well, even the children were able to cook the meals. What’s more, we found that out of all of the participants, Nuvona was one of the only companies that sealed their meals in resealable pouches, which makes it easy for a couple to continue to eat from the same 5 serving pouch without having to worry about spillage, contamination or pests.

 

If you’re looking for an overall great product with a delicious flavor, high nutritional caloric value, careful packaging methods and a large variety, then we recommend Nuvona Premium Foods. They make your shopping experience easy by even allowing you to choose your own package items so you aren’t stuck with foods you really don’t wish to eat.

Pricing for Nuvona Premium Foods is approximately 13% lower than the other participants in this review. What we also noticed was that Nuvona Premium Foods offers a way to make use of the funds that you spend in a way that the others do not.

 

Firstly, they provide packaging that is better suited for reuse. Next, they have smaller “sample” packs that you may try to see if you like their food first, and finally, they have created a new purchasing system that lets you decide which products you wish to purchase within your package.

During our review process, many of our research team approached us with the same question. What if I buy a package and it comes with entrees that we don’t like? Can we send them back to the manufacturer and ask for replacements? Will it cost extra for that option? We discovered that Nuvona Premium Foods has already thought about this and introduced a new option that lets you purchase a base set of product, then build your own packages, based on the types of food you want to store and serve to your family.

 

We awarded Nuvona Premium Foods 5 out of 5 stars.

TASTE

2013 Nuvona Premium Foods Review | 5-stars-460x86 |

[collapse id=”collapse_99″]
[citem title=”Taste Notes (Click To Expand)” id=”citem_99″ parent=”collapse_99″]
Taste Tested: Fettuccine Alfredo, Vegetable Rotini (vegetarian), Cheesy Broccoli Soup (Gluten Free)

Overall Taste: Excellent
Palatability: No negative feedback from research group on either sample
Texture: Creamy/Hearty

 

In a blind taste test, we placed one ounce sample cups from each participant in front of our research group. These samples included vegetarian, gluten-free and regular entrees, as well as dried fruits, drinks and breakfast meals. We then had them each taste the samples we provided them and asked that they write down their experiences to let us know just what they thought of each sample. After reading through more than 80 reviews, we found that two samples provided by Nuvona Premium Foods, Fettuccine Alfredo and Vegetable Rotini, were chosen as the favorite samples, by more than 35% of our group.

 

We awarded Nuvona Premium Foods 5 out of 5 stars.

PACKAGING

[collapse id=”collapse_93″]
[citem title=”Packaging Notes (Click To Expand)” id=”citem_98″ parent=”collapse_93″]
Packaged: Black Mylar Pouch
Thickness: Approximately 5.3mm
CO2 Absorber: Yes
Nitrogen Flushed: Yes
Resealable: Yes
Bulk Packaging: Sealed, Stackable, BPA-Free Buckets

 

Although the packaging was excellent, Nuvona Premium Foods was lacking images on the labels, which some of our research group felt should be present to know what the food is supposed to look like. Some foods may not be frequented by certain families and they would like to know how it looks in comparison to an image supplied on the packaging. This is a minor issue and did not deduct points from this topic.

We awarded Nuvona Premium Foods 5 out of 5 stars.

PORTIONS

2013 Nuvona Premium Foods Review | 4-stars-460x106 |

[collapse id=”collapse_85″]
[citem title=”Portion Notes (Click Here To Expand)” id=”citem_30″ parent=”collapse_85″]
Average Portion Per Container: 5
Average Container Weight: 11.8oz.
Average Caloric Intake Per Serving: 250

 

Our research group indicated that the portions, however issued in 5 serving bags, would not be enough to sustain life at a minimum recommendation of 2000 calories per day. That being said, they also determined that if one were to consume several meals per day, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a few snacks between, enough calories could be consumed.

With the amount of samples provided, our research group was only able to review package portioning and hypothesize a full caloric intake by reviewing the manufacturer’s product list for additional information.

We awarded Nuvona Premium Foods 4 out of 5 stars.

[citem title=”Preparation Notes (Click Here To Expand)” id=”citem_18″ parent=”collapse_48″]
Average Preparation Time: 20 Minutes
Instructions Included: Yes
Instructions Location: On Package
Ease Of Preparation: Easy

 

We allowed each member of the research group to read the instructions of one of 3 packages provided by Nuvona Premium Foods. Each member was then asked to provide a summary of the instructions from memory. 14 out of 20 members were able to provide instructions from memory, including an eight (8) year old male and a twelve (12) year old female.

Based on the fact that children were able to memorize the instructions, we then asked the 8 year old male to cook one of the packages provided, with adult supervision. This child was able to do so without any additional instruction from the adult.

We awarded Nuvona Premium Foods 5 out of 5 stars.
