When opening the container the absolute absence of aroma was striking. The warm and rich smell of cumin was completely missing. One would think that a pound of cumin seed would have at least a hint of cumin. Nada! Nothing! Zip! So I I took a teaspoon of it and put it in my spice mill, hopefully eliciting something, anything, from the seeds.
After about 15 seconds of whizzing, it worked! Sort of. The faint aroma coming from my spice mill was similar to that of a very diluted paint thinner. Ummmmm.... Definitely not the result I was hoping for.
I looked more closely at the container and learned this product was "manufactured" in India! Okay, I wasn't hoping for that either.
India, similar to China, has very few laws-- if any at all -- regulating her food production.
For instance, it is true that this product may very well be 'organic' as its label states. But that merely guarantees (ahem!) that no chemicals were used during the production of the food product. In other words, human excrement could be used as fertilizer since it clearly would be organic and therefore 'legal' to use.
Why this container has the smell of paint thinner I'll never know. Perhaps the containers in which the cumin seeds are placed shared space with a solvent manufacturer. At any rate, It's going into the trash. This is a company that I will not purchase from again.
I've made it a habit of NEVER buying food products from India or China. Sadly, the origin of this cumin was not stated in the product info on Amazon.
Please see attached pics.
I was at first disappointed in the packaging because on the picture it sounded like it’s packaged in a bottle but then I decided I do like the packaging instead of a plastic bottle, it closes well with the Ziploc, and it’s a nice strong flat bag.
