The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

"The juice of the coconut tree can be transformed into a sugar as soft as honey... Nature created this product such that it could not be processed in factories. Palm sugar can only be produced in palm tree habitats. Local populations can easily turn the nectar into coconut blossom sugar. It is a way to solve the world's poverty. It is also an antidote against misery."
Organic & Sustainable All-Natural Sweetener
Earth Circle Organics blond coconut palm sugar is a sustainable, healthy alternative to other common sweeteners. Used for thousands of years throughout South East Asia, coconut palm sweeteners have a long, celebrated tradition in foods and medicines. With a moist, crumbly texture this sweetener has its own unique caramel taste. Coconut sugar brings a subtle sweetness to all natural desserts or drinks and adds a bold and exotic flavor to savory recipes.
Coconut sugar is made by evaporating the sap of the coconut palm, a highly sustainable resource which is beneficial to the ecosystem. Coconut trees are nearly twice as productive per hectare as sugarcane, and grow in a diverse, wildlife supportive environment. They thrive in severely depleted soil and need very little water, improving local soil structure, plant nutrition, and water conservation over time.
The nectar from the coconut palm is hand-harvested by traditional sugar farmers who climb into the canopy of coconut palms to gently slice the blossoms from their stems. Each farmer cares for up to forty trees, climbing forty to fifty feet to collect sap from each tree twice daily. The collected liquid is kettle-boiled into thick caramel syrup, then dried and ground into crystals. Coconut sugar can be used in most recipes in place of cane sugar in a 1:1 ratio.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have a sweet tooth and never ever would have imagined sugar from coconuts tasting this good. This is my third time back for this decadent devil and all I can say is that if there was conventional sugar and Organic coconut sugar crystals on the table which would I make a bee-line for? I'd without a doubt go for the coconut sugar. Far better tasting and healthier. With conventional sugar, I don't really like to eat it from a spoon, yet this coconut sugar is delicious even straight from a teaspoon. It doesn't leave an after taste like stevia. I also use it as a topping for healthy desserts and in my husbands coffee, he loves it! For those who bake it's great and I use it in raw granola it's Delicious.
I Love coconut sugar - I like this best sprinkled over hot oatmeal.Gives a nice sweet caramel taste. I love the smell of it too, sometimes I just take the bag of this out of the press so I can smell it.
