What is a Best By Date?

A Best By Date is NOT an expiration date. A Best By Date serves as a "suggestion" for when a product will be of best flavor or quality.  It is not a purchase or safety date. We sell products past their Best By date for a minimal discount. This offers you savings on a product which is still safe and useable for a long time. 

Best By Dates on USDA.gov

Use the Food Keeper App on FoodSafety.gov to determine approximately how soon you should consume something after Best By Date.

Customer Testimonial



Hey Sandeep,

Just reaching out to say I am EXTREMELY grateful for your spice package. That is going to make the perfect present to a couple of my friends who like to cook. The garam masala is my favorite!

Your dedication to quality is inspirational. I've never had spices taste this good before. Especially the turmeric.

I will be sharing the warm soothing feeling I get from these with my friends so they can make amazing meals with them too. Last night I made veal liver and onions sauteed in your ghee, turmeric, garam masala, and cayenne pepper. I added some fresh rosemary from my bush in the backyard as well. All of my friends loved it! Couldn't believe I got them to eat liver.

In health,
Anthony Benedettini



Hi! I'm Sandeep.

I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.

My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.

We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
