Are you reading your ingredients? Check out Garlic Unleashed! 2

Have you ever grabbed a seasoning mix, looked at the ingredients and wondered what some of the ingredients were?  Feel safe with Garlic Unleashed!

If you haven’t done this, I encourage you to do so.  Start reading your labels. More important than just fat, calories and carbs, we should be looking at what the item’s ingredients are.

Take a look at this McCormick potato seasoning.


Notice there is bleached wheat, sugar, maltodextrin and whey.  The wheat is most certainly genetically modified and we get so much wheat in our diets that it is the most likely reason for all the gluten sensitivities.  We are not meant to eat that much wheat – period – and it’s in EVERYTHING.

Secondly, malodextrin is a food additive. Wikepedia has this definition: Maltodextrin is an oligosaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder.[1] Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless. It is commonly used for the production of sodas and candy. It can also be found as an ingredient in a variety of other processed foods.

Sure maybe it’s ok in a minuscule amount, but think about the amount of processed foods that most Americans eat.

If this seems a bit overwhelming just keep it simple.  Get back to basics and start reading the ingredients.

Now let’s take a look at this hand blended seasoning mix from All Spiced Up. The ingredients are clearly labeled on the front and we can read and understand each one without having to google it.

And the taste? It can’t be compared!

This seasoning would normally be used on roasted potatoes but I tried it here in soup and the garlic flavor really shines.  What a great alternative to simple salt and pepper and it’s something you can feel great about feeding your family.
