Frequently Asked Questions


Where are the spices from?
We have scoured the globe in search of the highest quality, remarkable herbs and spices available, and with confidence, offer you a full line of organic products that are ethically sourced and soundly support our mission to align with your values, passion and purpose to be the best at what we do.

Does gluten free mean, that when gluten is taken out, the gluten is replaced with a higher sugar content and fillers?
With regards to spices that’s not the case. Spices are inherently gluten free so nothing needs to be added or taken out.  We test for gluten for the safety of our gluten free customers.

If spices are already gluten free, then why should I buy spices that are labeled gluten free?
The difference is that the spice has been tested to be sure there is no cross contamination.  Unless spices are produced in a facility that is completely gluten free then the potential for cross contamination exists.  All of our spices have been tested and confirmed to meet the guidelines to be labeled gluten free.

If I'm not gluten free should I buy your spices?
We provide high quality, organic spices that are good for your entire family.

Are your spices good for Paleo, AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) and Whole30 lifestyles?
Absolutely,  please consider us for your Paleo Spices and Whole 30 Spice needs.  With the exception of nightshades, our spices are also perfect for AIP.

Why don't you offer more blends?
With the exception of herbs, once you start blending the products you need to use some type of anti-caking agents. While there may be anti-caking agents that are perfectly safe, we want our customers to know that there is nothing in the bottle except spices and herbs.  We feel it’s better to make your own blends at home in small batches so that you can avoid any additives and adjust the flavors to your palate.
