The food labels on most store-bought seasoning mixes are full of fillers, preservatives and other unwanted fake flavor enhancers. These ingredients include:

  • Modified food starch (a thickener, often derived from GMO sources but not always)
  • Sugar (sugar is one of the most addicting substances)
  • Partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (Trans- fat and often made from a GMO oil sources, such as cottonseed, canola or soybean)
  • MSG (including “hidden” MSG under other names) hidden gluten (dangerous for those with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease)
  • Natural flavorings (you never know what this actually is…)
  • Silicon dioxide (to prevent caking–did you know this is in the white packets in a new show box that say, “do not eat?”)
  • Spices (This sounds innocent…but what exactly are these anonymous “spices”?)

You can easily avoid all of these by making your own! This is a hands-on class (Make and Take) and I will have all the supplies you need. We will be making a Taco Seasoning, Cajun Seasoning, Italian Seasoning, Ranch and Onion Soup Mix.
