  • Steam cooking in a steel can was an innovation introduced by Bonduelle after four years of research and development. Through the steaming process, fresh vegetables can be cooked with less juice than other methods – similar in many ways to a pressure-cooker. As a result, the produce retains its color, aroma, taste and texture, while the nutritional quality is better preserved.
