Our Italian seasoning is a mixture of many herbs (marjoram, sage, basil, thyme, and oregano) combined with MSG. Sprinkle it on potatoes, in soups, or in sauces for an Italian. It also works well in pasta dishes, on pizza, in tomato sauce, or when added to chicken parmesan. No sodium.
- Marjoram: A perennial herb with sweet, subtle, and delicate pine and citrus flavors.
- Sage: Sage is a perennial, evergreen shrub, with woody stems, grayish leaves, and blue to purplish flowers. It is native to the Mediterranean region, though it has naturalized in many places throughout the world. It has a long history of medicinal and culinary use. It has a savory, slightly peppery flavor.
- Basil: Basil, or Sweet Basil, originated in India, but is best known as a culinary herb prominently featured in Italian cuisine. It also plays a major role in the Northeast Asian cuisine of Taiwan and the Southeast Asian cuisines of Indonesia and Thailand. It has a sweet, delicate, and pleasant flavor.
- Thyme: Ancient Egyptians used thyme for embalming. The ancient Greeks used it in their baths and burnt it as incense in their temples, believing it was a source of courage. Today, thyme is used in cooking to impart a subtle and dry flavor with a hint of mint.
- Oregano: Part of the mint family, oregano is found in warm-temperate Europe and the Mediterranean. Oregano is an important culinary herb, used for the flavor of its leaves, which can be more flavorful when dried than fresh. It has an aromatic, warm and slightly bitter taste.
