  • All of Hurst's beans are 100% non-GMO, meaning they are NOT bioengineered.
  • Some of our dry seasonings/flavors contain bioengineered ingredients.

  • Ingredients that are bioengineered in some of our seasonings/flavors:
    • Soy (Hydrolyzed soy protein, soy-based vegetable oils)

*NOTE* Starting in the Spring of 2024, Hurst will begin to ship items containing "Ham Flavor" seasoning packets (starting with Original 15 Bean Soup) with a seasoning/flavor blend that is SOY FREE. The "Ham Flavor" will still have the same great taste our loyal customers have loved for years, but will no longer contain any soy based ingredient.

This new SOY FREE blend is also GMO free (no Bioengineered ingredients).

All product prior to this change will clearly state CONTAINS: SOY in the ingredients list on the back of every package.

New Soy Free Ham Flavor ingredients list: Yeast Extract, Salt, Maltodextrin, Natural and Artificial Flavors (Contains Canola Oil, Smoke), Triethyl Citrate, dl-alpha-Tocopherol.
