How long do spices last? 
 
The good news about spices is that they virtually last forever. It’s rare, if not impossible, for a spice to go “bad.” The 
 
biggest threat of time is that it causes spices to lose potency and flavor. The shelf life of spices depends on how the 
 
spices are stored. Spices alter the taste of foods and in different combination of  recipes can be altered to brand new 
 
dishes.
 
 
How to tell if a spice is bad, rotten or spoiled?
 
The main factor effecting the shelf life of spices is moisture. If moisture has entered the container, the spice will 
 
become sticky or clump together and not be too good to use. For this reason, it is not good to shake your spice bottle over 
 
your pot of steaming dish – instead pour it into a cup or use a dry spoon to retrieve your spice from the jar. If spices 
 
seemed to be infected or spoiled, you can wash it and sundry it for furthur use. Better to keep it in an airtight glass 
 
containers in a cool dry place to avoid bacterial infection.
 
Test to see if your spices have gone bad, by rubbing a bit of spice into the palm of your hand. Take a sniff – nice spices 
 
have a nice aroma, so if you don’t smell anything you won’t get much flavor from using the spice. If you have run out of 
 
the spice you need in a recipe, check our substitution page.
 
 
How to store spices to extend their shelf life?
 
The best way to store spices is in their original container or a similar airtight glass container in the pantry. For the 
 
shelf life of spices it makes little difference whether spices are opened or unopened, what is important is that they are 
 
tightly re-sealed immediately after each use.
 
Freezing is not recommended for spices. But spices that belong in the red pepper family (including paprika) will enjoy an 
 
extended shelf life (remain fresher and retain their red color longer) if stored in the refrigerator. Proper food storage 
 
is the key to extending the expiration date of food.
