Garlic Salt is a versatile mixture combining two ubiquitous seasonings. Pure white sea salt is colored and flavored by dried garlic granules in a mixture that can substitute for either ingredient.
Ready to use. Add to taste.
We blend sea salt with dried garlic granules to create our Garlic Salt, a compound taste and convenient way to apply two basic flavors of worldwide cuisine.
Garlic, a pungent and flavorful member of the lily family, has been a cornerstone of worldwide cuisines for centuries due to its prominent taste and aroma and for its ability to accent and amplify other flavors. Garlic's near universal appeal is demonstrated by the key role it plays in diverse cuisines such as Chinese, German, Greek, Indian, Italian, Middle Eastern, Peruvian and Thai.
Salt has been a vitally important commodity throughout human civilization. Salt fulfills three major functions in cooking by seasoning and preserving food in addition to providing essential nutrients. Due to its unique ability to preserve food, salt was considered so valuable as to be considered a form of currency in some cultures.
Sea salt is obtained through the evaporation of seawater, as opposed to mining. Because of its origin, sea salt contains less sodium and less iodine, but more trace elements than mined salt. These trace elements add subtle mineral flavors to all culinary applications.
Combined into one ingredient, Garlic Salt makes a powerful yet versatile flavoring agent that can be used from anything from popcorn to steaks. Try it to season soups, stews, and chili or in applications where larger pieces of fresh garlic might potentially burn or affect the texture of your desired product.
