By Now Foods6 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 2019
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.

If you're into sprouting then you're already familiar with Citric Acid, a natural preservative typically found in citrus fruits such as lemons and limes. Citric Acid helps to inhibit the formation of mold and other bacterial growth, and all-to-common occurrence when sprouting in a jar due to high temperatures and humidity. Citric Acid is also useful for canning vegetables and fruit preserves.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I got this to use as a cleaning agent in my Zojirushi water boiler, and it worked fantastically! After only two cleaning cycles, my pot looks brand new. I also used it to clean the calcium deposits off of my mouth night guard and my wife's retainer. All I can say is, "wow!" After a single soaking, it finally looks clean. I haven't used a chemical cleaner on my night guard in roughly 3+ years (and it showed, I'm embarrassed to say), and this stuff worked like magic. Highly recommended. Also, iHerb.com provided superb service. It shipped very quickly and arrived before I expected it.
My girl scouts made fizzy bath bombs for their spa badge. This was a good price and they shipped quickly.
