  • Creole Seasoning

    The Creole Seasoning uses a tomato base. Tomatoes are used consistently in Creole dishes and help to separate New Orleans’ Creole cuisine from the rest of Louisiana cooking.

  • Cajun Seasoning

    The Cajun seasoning has what is known in Catholic Louisiana as "the holy trinity:" a seasoning base of onion, bell pepper and celery. These vegetables are the foundation for countless Louisiana recipes.

  • Low sodium

    The seasonings contain only 3% sodium because they’re vegetable-based, not salt-based. All of the flavor with none of the guilt.

  • Louisiana pride

    Our seasoning blends are old family recipes that are the product of early New Orleans settlers and tradition that dates back centuries.
