The Kitchen Flavorsadmin
It’s a grand month. Not only is the heat of summer fading into the heat of autumn around here, but our website has been launched a few weeks ago.
I am so grateful to that you have discovered The Kitchen Flavors and our products. Which makes this a great opportunity to provide more information. First I must explain one the most common inquiries I have been asked – the Packaging. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so many issues have resulted in supplies being drastically unavailable across all industries including our spice company. Subsequently our use of a variety of packaging products. For example the Pouch. I chose to provide our products a nifty place to reside as it is shipped and stored. Most of the pouches we use are made of Rice Paper, environmentally sensitive yes, but just dang cool. Also, the convenience of the pouches stand uppityness and single track locking are ever cooler. I’m sure you have plastic bottles with herbs and spices on your shelves, those are historically good for these products. We had limited access to similar items with which to package. You see the manufacturers of plastic bottles had to shift their focus onto sanitizers and cleaners. Of course these manufacturers played a huge role in keeping us safe and healthy. Thanks guys!
Product contents will settle once in the package – whether in a pouch or a jar. It’s physics – particularly the effects of gravity on granular items. In fact, years ago, nut companies studied stream dynamics and learned small pebbles “sink” beneath the larger rocks.
From the beginning of The Kitchen Flavors, a decision was made to not use fillers and anti caking additives, chemical preservatives, and avoidance of common allergens. So if you live in a place that has plenty of humidity, you may see a little clumping in products. Even the ambient relative humidity during shipping can affect the product. You may have experienced this with bags of flour at home that no longer need as much liquid in recipes. Your sugars are oppositely affected, they suffer with very dry conditions.
Once you receive your products, simply shake or tumble them to get them back in shape if needed. If you experience some clumps, simply smash them with the back of a teaspoon.
Currently, several new blends are in development and testing. Stay tuned!
