del Carmen is committed to making black bean quality products with love, always searching for optimum flavor without sacrificing the inherent health attributes of beans, a super food. Whenever possible, we will use local ingredients. Our beans are like homemade, without adding any preservatives.
They are also vegan/vegetarian. Once you taste them you will be wowed!...your palate will be clapping!
They are sold fresh-frozen to preserve its natural attributes. This also makes our products convenient. Beans are a slow food. We take all the fuss out of it, making them the old fashioned way and transforming a super food into a meal fit for a king.
Our fresh-frozen products are shelf stable for a year. This allows our consumer to control the freshness and avoid waste.
