Frontier Natural Products, Sweet Basil, Leaf Flakes, 0.48 oz (13 g)4 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2017
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.

A lovely member of the mint family with a mildly peppery taste, a hint of clove and mint, basil is at the same time spicy and sweet, warm and fresh.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I find basil can make each dish made of meat a real culinary masterpiece. This seasonig is light and not saturated with the specific aroma and flavor inherented to basil leaf. The aroma is not very strong and the flavor is mild. Goes well with dishes made of fish and all sorts of meat. Как говорят, базилик может сделать любое мясное блюда настоящим шедевром. Эта специя достаточно мягкая и не очень насыщенная специфическим запахом и вкусом, присущим базилику. Аромат легкий, а вкус мягкий. Прекрасно сочетается с рыбными и мясными блюдами.
Of course fresh basil is preferable, but not always easy to have on hand, so decided to try this. Was all right in soup and in a sauce. Gave it three stars only because I don't know how it compares to other brands of dried basil.
