Frequently asked questions

Rubs/Seasonings

What's the best way to store spice jars/seasoning?


The spice blends and seasonings are dry blend of spices. The two key things to storing the products are to: 1. Keep away from direct sun-light - This will avoid the product from discolouring and going stale. 2. Avoid moisture - This will avoid the product from clumping Ideally, after use, seal in an air-tight container in the pantry.




Are your products Gluten free?


All the spice blends and seasonings are Gluten free. Gluten is a family of proteins found in grains, including wheat,rye, spelt and barely. Some blends in the market contain flour to prevent caking. In other cases, there may be cross-contamination to other production involving gluten. In our production facility, we do avoid anti-caking agents and do not produce any product that contain gluten. We strive to ensure that each of products contain beautiful combinations of flavour from natural herbs and spices.




What is the shelf life of your spice mixes/seasonings?


More than 2 years easily assuming you have kept the products in ideal storage condition (away from direct sunlight and moisture). For added safety, we typically display the 'best before' date 1.5 years from the batch date to cater for unknowns.




Are your products MSG free?


Yes - all our blends are MSG free. MSG is short for Monosodium Glutamate. It is a common food additive used to enhance flavour. Although there is no compelling evidence that MSG has negative effects on your body, many people are sensitive to it and display symptoms on its consumption including - headache, muscle tightness, numbness, tingling, weakness, flushing and thirst for hydration. We strive to keep all our blends with consistent quality where the flavours stem from the richness of the natural herbs and spices.
