The nutritional information on the pouch reflects the ingredients in one serving of the product in its dehydrated state. Serving sizes are determined according to standards set by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
The percent daily value is based on the recommended daily value of each nutrient. Therefore, the % DV is the ratio of the quantity of a nutrient per serving to the recommended daily value for that nutrient.
Recommended daily values are different for each nutrient. For example, daily fat intake should not exceed 65 g; therefore, a food that contains 65 g of fat per serving would provide 100% of the recommended daily value.

When stored in a cool, dry place, away from light, unopened pouch will keep for up to three years. It is best to use the entire pouch at once, since an opened product can be altered by moisture.
Once the product has been reconstituted, it must be stored in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, like any other prepared food.
Since the suggested recipes are designed based on a full pouch, it might be difficult to cut a recipe in half as the quantities might not be easy to measure. However, this is not impossible to do. On the other hand, to double a recipe, simply use twice the amount of all listed ingredients. The cooking time can vary by doubling the recipe.
The recipes are intended as a guideline, so you can easily switch out the meat and vegetables based on the ingredients you have on hand or on your personal preferences. Let your imagination run wild!
All food processing companies must comply with current food allergen labelling regulations. Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have issued clear guidelines on how to declare the presence of food allergens. All priority food allergens must be declared either in the list of ingredients or in a statement that begins with “Contains: …” on their labels. The list of these allergens appears on the Health Canada website at: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/securit/allerg/fa-aa/index-eng.php.
The allergens contained in Suwong products are listed on the product labels. To meet our clients’ needs and in the aim of providing high-quality products, note that our sauces and seasoning mixes are constantly changing. Therefore, we recommend that you check for the presence of allergens each time you buy a product.
Monosodium glutamate, or MSG, is a salt of glutamic acid, an amino acid that occurs naturally in many foods, especially in tomatoes and fermented soy products. It is used in the food industry and in restaurants to enhance the flavour of food.
MSG has been the subject of numerous studies that have yet to demonstrate any harmful effects of the product. However, because many people are intolerant to MSG, we have opted to omit it from our products. For more information on MSG, visit the Health Canada website at: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/securit/addit/msg_qa-qr-eng.php.
Suwong has updated its product line specifically with consumers in mind, while remaining committed to offering delicious, premium-quality products.
First of all, you will notice the new, more attractive packaging, making Suwong products easy to identify on the shelf thanks to their typically Asian look and dragon logo.
In addition to omitting MSG and artificial flavours from all of our products, we have reworked each flavour to make them even more appealing. While preserving the flavour profile you’ve come to love, each recipe has been enhanced to better suit modern culinary trends. Enjoy!
