Thawing Your Northern Seitan Company Products

If you've bought Northern Seitan Company products and stored them in your freezer, you'll need to thaw them before you can use them. Here are three methods you can use to thaw your seitan:

  1. Under refrigeration: Leave in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Once the package is opened, store leftovers in an air-tight container for up to a few days.

  2. Under water: Put the sealed package in a large bowl under slow running cold water for a few minutes. This will ruin the label and be a bit messy, so it's not as recommended as the refrigeration option. You'll know the product is thawed if it's somewhat pliable.

  3. Microwave: Not recommended but possible. You can microwave the product for 1 minute, and then 30 sec intervals until the desired thaw level is reached.

Choose the method that works best for you, and enjoy your Northern Seitan Company products!
