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.

Mate Factor is Unique
- Fresh, not aged
- No smoky flavor.
Taste and Feel the Difference
Taking care to preserve the herb's natural vibrancy, vitamins, enzymes, bio-active components and flavor is the factor that delivers this delicious product to you. Mate available today is typically aged for at least one year. However, we deliver something special — Fresh Yerba Mate, with all the secrets of nature still intact. We process out Mate immediately upon harvest, seal in airtight packaging, and rush export to preserve freshness.
Love Heat, No Smoky Flavor
We carefully dry our herb using a process that protects its vital nutrients and natural flavor, which is smooth and delicious. This means protecting the bio-active compounds from heat, age and smoke.
We Trade Fairly
Mate Factor is founded upon and practices fair trading ethics. We have a personal friendship with our producers and enjoy helping increase the quality of life in their local communities.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I looks like coffee, but it doesn't taste like coffee. It's a delicious break from coffee and unwanted caffeine.
I've used this Yerba Mate to get myself down to one cup of coffee in the morning. It gives me energy without making me jittery. It doesn't taste like coffee, but has the same richness. I add a packet of Stevia and enjoy the taste.
