Seasoning salt is nothing new to the culinary world. There are so many different types of seasoning salts available, the choices might be overwhelming. In Australia, chicken salt is the seasoned salt most people reach for, while in America opening a cupboard would probably reveal some bright red seasoned salt concoction. Our seasoning salt offers a wonderful alternative for those available in the grocery store which may be laden with ingredients that are less than savory.
Seasoned salt is a spice blend that is made up of some type of salt and then some other spices. These other spices vary depending on who is making the blend. It can be used wherever salt is used, and it is sometimes utilized in helping people shift into a lower sodium diet. It is easier to transition to less salt than it is to completely pull the salt from one's diet. There are some companies that use MSG in their seasoned salt blends, though we are not one of those companies.
Well, spices by nature are gluten free. However, some manufacturers will use additives, flavorings and anti-caking agents that are derived from a source that contains gluten, meaning they have added gluten to their spices or spice mixes. Gluten sometimes falls under the catch-all phrase "natural flavoring" and so it may not even be listed on the ingredients list and the product could potentially wear no warning. Our spice blends have no anticaking agents, preservatives, additional flavorings or colorings that contain grain or wheat in them as they are made from spices alone.
Salt has a very bad reputation. The real thing that people fear is not salt but sodium, though the two names are often used interchangeably because salt contributes the most sodium to a person's diet. While an increase in salt is said to bring about heart problems and hypertension, studies have shown that consuming a diet too low in sodium can cause insulin resistance and promote diabetes. The American Heart Association recommends that consumers adopt lower sodium diets. Really, it depends on your own body and your relationship with salt.
Seasoned salt can be used in place of regular salt to cut down on the amount of actual salt you are consuming, but it is still high in sodium and is not a perfect replacement. With everything, we advise using our seasoning salt in moderation.
No, it isn't. It could have table salt in its ingredients list, but since it also has other spices in the mix, it is considered a spice blend where table salt is usually just salt, give or take a few anti-caking agents. Some seasoning salt is made with other types of salts, like Himalayan Pink Salt, but typically it is just a regular white salt like our blend, which utilizes sea salt. Even though they are not the same thing, they can be used pretty much identically.

Homemade eggplant chips, which are essentially eggplants sliced thinly or thickly based on preference and then fried or baked, are often flavored with seasoning salt. These can then be sprinkled with apple cider vinegar for a deliciously savory snack.
Salads are usually not thought to be salty, but seasoning salt can be introduced to the greenest of vegetables and add something to the flavor dimensions of the dish. After you have seasoned it, dress your salad with a lemon juice and olive oil mixture and enjoy.
The best way to make popcorn is with a bag of kernels and some olive oil on the stove top. Give yourself the satisfaction of making and seasoning your popcorn for yourself instead of sticking a processed bag in the microwave. We enjoy this seasoning salt as a topping on the finished product, which is also coated in a fine layer of freshly grated parmesan cheese. Simply delicious. The seasoning salt could even be added to the olive oil before popping the kernels if so desired.
When making burgers this seasoning salt is a tasty, easy addition. Hard boiled eggs are traditionally salted before they are eaten, so this works in that instance as well.

Salt is, just like anything in life, best in moderation. Season slowly and taste as you go. Our spices are extremely flavorful, and we recommend using less than you would expect to when using them for the first time. You can always add more, but you can never take them out if you have over-seasoned.
Seasoned salt can be used in place of regular salt in most instances, however salted caramel would not taste as delicious with seasoned salt as it does with sea salt.
