Salt-Free-Seasoning-Blends-Tips-and-Recipes

A common myth is that healthy foods just do not taste very good. But why? Foods overloaded with salt and sugar are overcompensating for flavors that aren’t natural. In turn, meals that are seasoned with an array of fresh herbs and spices not only automatically go up in nutrition, but also in diversity of flavor.

If anything, healthy meals should be more delicious!

A wonderfully easy way to season with less sodium and more flavor is to use seasoning blends. However, not all salt-free seasoning blends are created equal. Some products still contain added sodium and even sugar, and it’s important to read your food labels carefully.

At True Citrus, we have an array of salt-free seasoning blends that are made with simple, clean ingredients and contain no sweeteners or preservatives.
