Q 1: How should I store whole spices and spice blends?
Ans: Light, excess heat, moisture in air degrade the flavour, aroma of whole spice and spice blends.
Always purchase in small quantities, as per requirement. For maximum shelf life and better experience, we would recommend to store whole spices, herbs and spice powders in refrigerator, airtight containers and glass jars and place in dark cool area.
We suggest to refrigerate Dry Ginger, Coriander seeds, Aamchoor powder, Mace, Nutmeg, Poppy seeds, Big Cardamom. So it remain fresh. Also if Green Cardamom is stored in fridge, green colour will sustain for longer duration.
Spice blends like Tea masala, Chaat masala, Sambar masala, Pavbhaji masala, coriander seed powder should be stored in refrigerator for longer shelf life.
Q 2: How long do spices and blends last?
Expiry dates are mentioned on every pack. But beyond that too spices last. Spice don’t “go very bad” in the same sense as other foods. They do, however, lose their flavor over time. Whole spices can maintain their full flavor for several years in case stored in refrigerator. We recommend replacing ground spice powders and blends every year. The best test for spice freshness is simply smelling them. If they smell weak or have no aroma, they probably won’t have much flavor and should be replaced.
Q 3: Tell us about your packaging!
Ans: We use food grade quantity transparent or brown paper stand pouches for packaging. It has zipper lock. Sometimes we use packaging bags too instead of pouches. On customers’ demand we can share glass jar bottle packaging too, with additional charges as applicable.
