To maximize freshness, store in a dark airtight container in a cool dry place. Once the spice is ground, flavor deteriorates with exposure to light, heat, air, humidity and time.
Due to the naturally corrosive property of turmeric, it reacts with plastic bags making them sticky and/or producing holes. So, we do not offer refill bags for turmeric.

African - Popular in the North African country of Tunisia, where blends tend to have spicy and hot profiles using turmeric, dried chiles and dried mint.

Indian - Turmeric is used extensively in Indian dishes, in lentil and meat recipes, and in chutneys.

Product Testing

In response to concerns over food safety, many in the spice industry are taking measures to provide you with the information you seek. While testing has always been conducted, certificates of analysis (COAs) are now accompanying most products through the supply chain. COAs identify country of origin, certifications, best by dates, and information on product testing.

As of August 2022, Smith & Truslow spice jar labels have “best by” dates (as opposed to “packaged on” dates), and include lot numbers that correspond to the COA for the enclosed spice or herb. If you would like to review the COA for the lot we are currently selling, or for one that you have already purchased, please send an email to: Be sure to indicate 1) the spice name, and 2) the lot number, and we’ll respond with a PDF of the COA, as is available.
