Frequently Asked Questions

How are Ground 2 Table spice blends different from what’s in my cabinet now?

We’re proud to tell you that our spice blends are certified organic, free of GMOs, and have NO added salts or sugars. Perhaps more interestingly, they are provided in individual packets. They’re more natural than your other options, and they’re more convenient to use! Most of all, they deliver exceptional flavor, because the spices are completely fresh the moment you rip that spice packet open.

Why isn't there salt or sugar in your blends?

We don’t feel that we should be telling you how much salt and sugar you should be putting in your food, do you? We also wanted to make sure that you are getting the most flavor possible and by adding salt and sugar to our blends we would be taking away from all the exciting flavors of our organic spices!

Are there GMOs in your spices?

As a USDA certified organic brand, there are absolutely no GMOs in our spices. Learn more about what the USDA organic logo tells you about our food here.

I love your spices – can I buy larger sizes?

We are so happy to hear that you love our spices! We offer single use packets as part of the Buy Small | Use It All™ mantra. To promote freshness and reduce waste, each blend is offered in individual packets. If you want to stock up and place a larger order, we offer ongoing specials and discounts for higher quantities. We’d be happy to help you – just give us a call!

Can I buy Ground 2 Table spices as a gift?

Absolutely! Contact us with your information and we will be happy to arrange the perfect gift for the special someone in your life!

What is the Buy Small | Use it All™ Revolution?

Our mantra at Ground 2 Table was born from the passion to promote more sustainable food consumption. Starting with spices, we want to both empower our customers to purchase only what they need. It just so happens that with spices, buying small has HUGE effects on flavor and the freshness of your food. You’ll taste it instantly.

If you’re interested in being part of our conscious consumer revolution, please be sure to sign up for our mailing list, so we can keep you posted about Buy Small | Use it All™ developments.

How much food can I make with one spice blend packet?

A good rule of thumb is to use a packet for every 2-4 servings of a meal. Just as you do with your traditional spices, you will discover how much you want to use with time. The good news is that our blends aren’t overpowering if you accidentally overdose! But you may find that you don’t need to use a whole packet and can save some for later.

How does shipping work?

Ground 2 Table shipping is always free! Your orders are hand-packaged by our team here in San Diego. We conserve fuel and materials by delivering your spices in small envelopes. There are 3 packets to an envelope that we ship. If you were eyeing another spice, consider rounding up your order to the nearest 3!

If you have any questions about shipping, please feel free to contact us.

What is your return policy?

If you receive an incorrect order or damaged merchandise please contact us at and we will take care of you!

I'm hungry! Is there any way to get my spices faster?

To keep our quality spices at efficient prices for you, we chose USPS as our shipping partner.

If you live in California you can expect them in 1-3 Business Days. Anywhere else in the US, please allow 3-5 business days for your delivery.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to grow. If you think we should set up distribution closer to you, let us know!

Is your packaging sustainable?

Our mailing card and envelope are both made from paper that contains at least 30% post consumer paper. We worked to source paper that is FSC certified and are proud to say this is just the beginning in our search for the most environmentally friendly way to get your spices to you. We currently ship in small envelopes vs. larger boxes to avoid wasteful packaging and fuel consumption.

Why are your spices numbered?

With our unique spice blends, the sky is the limit when it comes to culinary creativity! Numbers instead of traditional labels free you from the bounds of what is ‘supposed’ to go on your juicy steak, in your fresh baked cookies or sprinkled on your morning eggs. Experiment and discover the powerful magic that spices can have on any meal.
