So, it really depends.


Is this spice going into a RTE food, or will it go through a kill step, either in the plant or at the customer level?

What are your similar spices' specifications?

Is there more of a risk to how lemon Myrtle is processed vs other spices?

Does the vendor treat it to lower micro, or is it untreated?

Does the vendor have a base specification, or are they requesting it from you? They should be able to provide what is a normal spec for this product, and you can decide to require more stringent specs based on the above.
