Miron glass jars are available now. This glass will best preserve the potency of any food or herbs you store inside.
What is Miron Glass?
Although it looks black from the outside, miron glass is a violet glass. If you look at it with a light source behind it, you’ll be able to see this.
While it has only come into modern consciousness recently, first being produced in our modern age back in 1995, evidence suggests that violet glass was used by the ancient Egyptians as well as medieval alchemists to protect special herbs and materials.
When it comes to herbs there are a few natural things that can degrade their quality; light, air and heat.
For these reasons we recommend you keep your herbs sealed in their package and in a dark and cool cabinet. For most, there is no reason to refrigerate but a regular shelf will suffice. Our black bags help to keep the light out.
The most important thing for you to do is to keep the air out as much as possible. In some of the herbs we even add in an oxygen absorber to help with this.
Clear glass lets in the entire light spectrum. Cobalt and amber glass block some of it.
Miron glass only allows in the violet color, as well as UV and infrared light.
What does this mean? Testing shows that it can dramatically improve the shelf life and potency of various products.
You can see what just two months of storage in the different jars did to these chives. Which one would you want to use?
Not only will these taste and smell better, but that also means more of the medicinal properties and nutrition is preserved.
Another test showed what seven months did to a cherry tomato.
We thought about packaging all of our herbs in miron glass but it would increase the cost, not to mention shipping.
Instead we’ve decided to make these available standalone. You can buy one, or a few, and use them to store your Lost Empire Herbs, as well as much else.
They’re reusable, washable, and will last forever as long as you don’t break them.
