The History

Best Express Foods was born in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1989 when Jesus Mendoza wanted to challenge himself by setting the bar for quality baked goods. Having worked in restaurants across the peninsula, and using his home dining room as a workspace for recipe development, Mr. Mendoza was able to produce the core products for a family business that would one day become successful.

The stone ground corn tortilla chips were the first of many creations rooted into the company's soil, using just the simplest ingredients. from there, tortillas, breads and pastries all followed suit.

Today, Mr. Mendoza still proudly carries the company’s weight on his shoulder and continues to develop and test recipes out of his own home.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking for where to find our products, Best Express Foods cannot provide this information. Products are distributed by depots and third-party distributers, therefore we are unable to inform our customers which stores carry any specific products. While we are working to better this system, the best thing to do is to call your local grocery store to see if they carry the product you are looking for.

Unfortunately, Best Express Foods is not responsible for stores discontinuing our products. If a product is discontinued, please call your local grocery store to request that such product return to their shelves. Due to a high volume of inquiries, Best Express Foods will not reply to e-mails regarding this matter. We appreciate your support. Thank you for your understanding.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN YOUR PRODUCTS?

Answer: All ingredients and nutrition facts can be found on the product detail page.

WHAT FOOD ALLERGENS ARE LISTED ON THE INGREDIENT LABELS?

Answer: The FDA requires that the top 8 food allergens be included on the ingredient label. These are: Milk, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish, Treenuts, Peanuts, Wheat and Soybeans. If a nut, fish, or shellfish is present; then the label must identify the particular type of food. (ie-cashew, hazelnut, coconut, flounder, crab, shrimp, etc.)

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ORGANIC?

Answer: In the last decade, we have found the importance and demand for organic products. Since then we’ve begun to transition some of our conventional products into products with certified organic ingredients. Our Research and Development team is working hard to continue the organic transitions of all our products. If you are an organic ingredient supplier and think you have something to offer, please get in touch by e-mailing us at cs@bestexpfoods.com. We’re always looking for certified organic suppliers!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRODUCTS THAT ARE "NATURAL" VS. ORGANIC?

Answer: Organic foods are always third-party certified to comply with strict, far-ranging USDA organic regulations.

ARE ANY OF YOUR PRODUCTS GLUTEN-FREE?

Answer: At this time, our facilities are not gluten-free certified. We provide full disclosure of additives in the ingredients list on all of our packaging. You will find that some of our products do not have added gluten, however, because gluten is airborne, we cannot formally state that our products are gluten-free. As the global understanding of gluten intolerances increases, we are working on creating a gluten-free certified facility for the future of our company.

YOUR PRODUCT SAYS IT CONTAINS ‘MILK’, BUT I DON’T SEE ANY MILK PRODUCTS ON THE INGREDIENT LIST.

Answer: There is a misconception regarding butter not being a milk product. Butter is a high-fat dairy product often made from cow's milk. However, it is allowed on some dairy-free diets due to its low lactose and protein content. Some of our products do contain butter. Therefore, if you are dairy-free due to health, religious or culture related reasons, we ask that you reconsider consumption of these products.

I AM VEGAN/VEGETARIAN. DO YOU USE ANIMAL PRODUCTS?

Answer: Some of our products do contain dairy, eggs, and honey. Please review the ingredient list of our product which will show any animal products to look out for.

I HAVE A NUT ALLERGY. CAN I EAT YOUR PRODUCT?

Answer: Please review the ingredient list of our products which will show any allergens to look out for. Some of products are produced on shared equipment that may contain tree nuts. Our facility handles: peanuts, tree nuts, coconuts and seeds.

CAN YOU FREEZE YOUR PRODUCTS FOR AN EXTENDED SHELF-LIFE?

Answer: Absolutely! In the research and development process, all our products go through a freezing stage to test the extended shelf life.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN A PRODUCT EXPIRES?

Answer: All of our products will have a BEST BY stamp or sticker on the package.

I AM NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR PRODUCT. I WOULD LIKE A REFUND.

Answer: Not everyone will enjoy our products, and that’s okay! If you are unsatisfied with any of our products, please return the product to the store you purchase it from, and a refund will be issued by that store.

I CAN’T FIND YOU AT MY LOCAL COSTCO. WHY IS THAT?

Answer: Once Costco receives our products, it is up to them how they wish to distribute it. Best thing to do is to get in contact with your local Costco and ask them to consider our product. The more requests, the more likely you are to see us on Costco's shelves.

WILL YOU DONATE PRODUCTS TO MY FUNDRAISER/CHARITY?

Answer: We love giving back to the community. Please submit a form on our Donation Request Page and we’ll get back to you to discuss your event! Please note your request must be made at least 60 days before your event to ensure product availability.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
