Depending on the type of dish, you either place in a water bath or pour the content out of the bag into a saucepan and heat until desired temperature. Some dishes, like the Bakes and Lasagnas, you take out of the meal trays, place in an oven-proof dish and then in the oven until desired heat. With our frozen goods, these meals must thaw before they can be heated.
The preparation of a complete dish never takes more than around 10-15 minutes. Nothing more needs to be chopped or prepared, just reheated.

The Super Mama Goji Energy Treats last for 2 weeks from arrival and the Granola for up to 1 month. If meals are frozen directly after arrival, they will still fresh for up to 3 months.

At Mama Muun we are constantly researching and working on more sustainable ways to create less impact on the environment. That's why we offer only plant-based meals and source our ingredients regionally whenever and wherever possible, taking care of the carbon footprint of our products.
Your Mama Muun dishes come either in 100% recyclable bags or in biodegradable meal trays that are sealed with a thin film. Compared to traditional plastic trays, this saves us more than 95% plastic. We also use 100% BPA-free materials. However we are still not happy with these results and are on a constant look out for better plastic-free and recyclable options and trialing always new ways to deliver even more sustainably.
In your Mama Muun package you can
- recycle the cardboard box via the paper bin.
- add the inlay cooling fabric to the yellow bin as it is made from recycled bottles.
- add our meal trays to the normal bin as it's biodegradable. The tray foil will be recycled via the yellow bin.
- recycle our soup and stew bags via the yellow bin.
