In this article you learn about the shelf-life of our magic mushroom supplements, safe storage practices to ensure the longevity of your products and the rationale for our amber glass containers.
The shelf-life of our magic mushroom supplements.
Our magic mushroom supplements have a relatively long shelf-life of 12–18 months, depending on how they have been stored.
Safe storage best practices.
The best way to store magic mushrooms is to keep them in an air-tight container that minimizes their exposure to oxygen, heat, UV light, and bacterial or fungal spores. That's why we use amber glass jars, which we cover in more detail below.
Most experts recommend the jar and cupboard method over common practices like storing mushrooms in the freezer. This method can preserve dried mushrooms for at least a year if you store them in a dark, dry, cool place, like a cupboard.
Why glass amber containers?
We use amber containers for a few reasons:
Glass comes from nature: Glass is made from naturally occurring ingredients abundant in nature. The transformation of these ingredients results in one sole material. No other material or chemical layers are needed to complete it.
They protect light-sensitive products: One of the main benefits of using amber glass is that it provides the best protection against UV light, blue light, and other light wavelengths under the 450-nanometer range. UV rays can cause what is known as photooxidation, which reduces the efficacy of the ingredients by breaking them down.
They provide a safer interaction: This means that there won’t be any chemical interactions between the glass and product inside, unlike plastic which is latent with chemicals that break down fairly easily and interact with the stored product.
They are recyclable and can be reused: Not only is glass a safe packaging for food, it is also environmentally sustainable! Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity. Glass recycling is a closed loop system, creating no additional waste or by-products.
