Questions about herbs.
What is the best way to store herbs?
Herbs and spices should be stored in an airtight container such as a glass bottle in a cool and dark location such as a pantry. Herbs can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer but should be vacuum sealed to protect product from moisture.
Where do our herbs come from?
Herbs are grown all over the world and shipped to our vendors for quality testing. Testing includes organoleptic analysis for aroma, color, flavor and texture. Physical testing involves moisture, volatile oil content, heavy metals, microbiology, thin layer chromatography, and other tests specific to each herb.
What is the shelf life of herbs?
Herbs can lose potency over time. If stored in airtight containers, such as glass jars, and kept in a cool, dark, dry place, whole herbs and spices can last up to 3-4 years and ground herbs and spices can last 1-2 years.
