Frontier Natural Products, Alum Granules, 16 oz (453 g)4 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Alum is the chemical compound aluminum sulfite and is also referred to as ammonium aluminum sulfite or ammonium alum. Alum is used primarily as a pickling agent, to add crispness, or as a dye fixer (mordant).
Use in home pickling to add crispness. For recipes that call for powder, granules can be ground in a spice grinder.
iHerb Customer Reviews
I specifically ordered ALUM CRYSTALS for an Art Project and was sent Alum Granules. This product was not what I ordered, as it is non-irradiated(a word that I did not understand, and in fine print on the package. I advised IHerb that the granules did not Crystalize as I had hoped, and sent back the unopened package. I am still searching for the ALUM CRYSYALS, and have not found them. I need this by September 9th, and need your help. Thank you, Jan Clark
Thanks for the fast service and quality products. I will be ordering from you all again!. Gerry
