Organic EDEN spices, herbs, and vegetables are from our stocks used in the preparation of Eden foods. They are Eden qualified and selected as the "best of the best" that we can find. Spices and herbs contain volatile oils, polyphenols, and beneficial antioxidants. It is wise to protect them from light, especially fluorescent lighting, and photochemistry induced degradation of sensitive aroma, flavor, and nutritional components. Organic EDEN herbs, spices, and vegetables are glass jarred in efficacious dark amber glass. This glass works twice as good as green, and vastly better than clear.
