Today the New York Times released an article stating that spices from India are a potential source of Salmonella.This is in fact, one of the reasons why there is an ORGANIC INDIA!
In the early 1990’s, high quality, organic, pathogen-free herbs were a rarity in India. ORGANIC INDIA was founded to resolve this problem, and to provide marginal farmers with sustainable, healthy, organic farming practices. Almost two decades later, much has changed but it is still vital to research the source of the herbs you take.
ORGANIC INDIA’s herbs and spices are pure, potent and constantly tested for any type of bacterial or fungal infection/contamination including Salmonella, and often, as the herbs and spices come into America, they get tested again by government agencies.
Our herbs are grown organically with biodynamic farming techniques, harvested by hand and locally processed within 24 hours. At the factory, they are dehydrated in a dry, sterile environment to a low moisture content of 10%.This specific limit of moisture prevents phytochemical degradation and mold or bacterial contamination. We take every precaution to ensure ORGANIC INDIA products are free from pathogens, bacteria, viruses, harmful chemical pesticides, artificial hormones, heavy metals, toxic contaminants, radiation and genetic modification, to provide pure potent and effective True Wellness herbs to benefit our customers worldwide.
