Wait a minute. This is raw cookie dough. And you’re telling me I can safely eat it raw? And I don’t have to refrigerate it before I open it?

Yes, you’ve got that right! Our cookie dough is egg free, dairy free and gluten free. We only use high quality, certified organic, gluten free, non-GMO and fair trade ingredients, and no preservatives or synthetic ingredients. Our proprietary GF Flour Mix and other ingredients are able to maintain a rather low water activity, which keeps the dough safe from microbial growth and spoilage. Our current packaging is also food safe and air tight. So, grab a spoon and dig in!

How do you know it’s safe to store and eat at room temperature?

Because we had it tested! BeReal Cookie Dough was tested at “Ambient Temperature” storage conditions of 21-25 degrees Celsius, which is 69.8 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit, by Alliant Food Safety Labs in Farmington, CT. Ambient temperature (room temperature) simply means the temperature of the surrounding air in the room.

Why can I "Eat it Raw and Bake it"?

BeReal Cookie Dough is made of exclusively plant-based, whole, real foods. We have taken the eggs and milk-based ingredients associated with spoilage and replaced them with good-for-you ingredients that can be eaten raw or baked. In fact, try eating it raw while you bake it for a truly indulgent experience. YUM!!

How does BeReal Cookie Dough taste?

Our mission is to create the most delicious raw and baked cookie experience available on the market today. Most people can’t get enough of the raw dough and are surprised that the baked cookie is quite similar to a regular cookie. Read more about what our tasters think on our Reviews Page. Really, tasting is believing.

When is BeReal Dough at its best?

BeReal Cookie Dough tastes great at any time! We find its best texture is at room temperature (between 60 and 75 degrees). That’s when it is soft and spoonable for eating and baking!

How long will BeReal Dough last?

Bereal Dough will last unopened, at room temperature (between 60 and 75 degrees) for up to 60 days. Under perfect lab conditions, at the same temperatures, it lasted 74 days. Once opened, it needs to be refrigerated and will last for another 60 days, if you don’t eat it all first! We only know these facts due to an independent laboratory test because it has never lasted more than a day at our house (or anyone else’s for that matter). The real issue is the battle between the kids who want to eat it all raw and the grown-ups who want to bake it (at least some of it, anyway!). Make sure you have enough to keep everyone happy!
Remember that BeReal Dough can be kept:

*  At room temperature (between 60 and 75 degrees) for 60 days Unopened!

*  Refrigerated for 6 months and Frozen for up to 1 year

* Dough is best enjoyed within 60 days of opening at Room Temperature

My dough is a little crumbly, what should I do?

The dough may become crumbly over time due its low water activity. If your dough arrives crumbly, it’s easy to add some moisture. We suggest you add approximately 1 – 1 1/2 Tbsp. of coconut oil, palm oil, vegetable oil or vegan shortening to the dough and mix well.

Why does it say to "refrigerate after opening" on the back of the package?

This direction keeps the dough fresh for an additional 30 days and is present on most consumer products.

Can I freeze the cookies after I make them?

Yes. The cookies retain their flavor and consistency in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Are you certified Gluten Free?

The current FDA Certification Standards are tested at less that 20 PPM (parts per million) for the unavoidable presence of gluten to be certified “Gluten Free”. Here at BeReal Food, we test all our batches to ensure a test level of less than 10 PPM using the EZ Gluten™ testing kit. Therefore, our in-house testing and accepted PPM level of gluten exceed FDA Certification Standards.

Do BeReal Doughs contain nuts?

Potential consumers please note: All of our doughs currently on the market are nut-free. However, they may be produced on kitchen/bakery equipment where nut products were processed. This may cause an allergic reaction in some people. We constantly strive to maintain a separation from nut products during BeReal dough production and confirm that any shared equipment at our processing facility is thoroughly washed prior to use. Even with this standard operating procedure, we cannot guarantee no possibility of cross contamination will exist. Persons with severe nut allergies should use their own discretion prior to consuming our doughs. BeReal Food will not assume any liability for any allergic reactions post consumption of our cookie dough. BeReal Foods will not be liable for any problems caused by our products coming in contact with any contaminants or allergy causing products during customer preparation of or storage/handling of our doughs once received.

Is your Palm Oil sustainably sourced?

Yes. Our Palm Oil is certified by Palm Done Right, www.palmdoneright.com and is produced at a Fair Trade facility as certified by “fair for life”.

What are the little white "pearls" I sometimes find in the dough?

These are the “coconut pearls” sometimes found in our Organic Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil. They may not always be present but we notice them especially in our Cacao Fudge Chip Cookie. They are perfectly fine to eat raw and will melt away when baked.

Are BeReal doughs available in retail stores?

At present BeReal products are only available through our website, local food markets in Massachusetts and certain food expos within the Eastern U.S.

Where do you ship?

Currently, we only ship within the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii).
Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for more shipping information.

My dough arrived a little melted, what should I do?

Your cookie dough can be unrefrigerated and sit at room temperatures unopened for 60 days (almost 2 months!). That means most of the year we can just ship in a normal box (no ice packs or insulation needed) and it arrives in excellent condition. That said, during the heat of summer, it’s possible that the chocolate chips and dough may arrive a little melted. It’s totally natural for some melting to occur and that will not affect the safety or quality of the product. Simply place it in the refrigerator for 60 or 90 minutes to allow the chips to regain their structure. Then, allow it to come back to room temperature to enjoy it. Or you can open the dough upon arrival and mix all that natural OOEY-GOOEYness together and eat immediately!!
