Frontier Natural Products, Organic Whole Psyllium Husk, 16 oz (453 g)11 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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is an organic product but at a very reasonable price. As Psyllium is one of the most chemically polluted crops, it is important to by only 'organic'. This product has transformed my previously sluggish and bloated digestive system.
I started using psyllium as an added source of fiber in my cooking about forty years ago. Over the past ten or fifteen years, I have used only Frontier organic psyllium husks and have always been satisfied because they have always been top grade.
