I haven't stored my Amazing Grass in the refrigerator or freezer, is it still good?
Most likely your Amazing Grass product is still fine to consume. Their products are dehydrated and very low in moisture content. As long as your product has been stored in a cool dry place, the chances of the product molding or becoming contaminated are fairly small. When thir products are exposed to high temperatures, heat sensitive nutrients like betacarotene and some enzymes may have their nutritive levels dissipated somewhat. However, as long as stored properly (in a dry cool place) there is a good chance that your Amazing Grass product is still in great shape and safe to consume. They know many of their consumers (including all their employees) have traveled with an opened container for weeks at a time without cold storage. Bottom line, if you have the ability to store open containers in your refrigerator or freezer, that is preferred storage method, but their products should be fine to consume as long as they are stored in a cool dry place.

Once opened, they recommend storing their products in the refrigerator or freezer to maintain their highest nutritive levels.

These trace minerals include calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
