The shelf life for these products is typically 36 months (3 years) from when they are packaged - which is reflected on the Best By date printed on each product. This is an estimated time frame, as spices generally do not go bad if they are stored properly - a cool, dry place is ideal. They may lose their potency slightly, but they are safe to consume. As a general rule of thumb, whole spices typically last longer than ground.
We do not use any preservatives, nor do we use irradiation to extend the shelf life.
All natural is the way we like it!
Please note- when you order on www.spicely.com, the product we send will have a minimum of 2 years before the Best By date at the time of our shipping.
