Seasoned salt



Seasoned salt is a flavoured blend of table salt composed of herbs, spices, other flavourings, and sometimes monosodium glutamate (MSG). It is widely sold in supermarkets and is commonly used in fish and chip shops and other take-away food shops. It is known by many other names, including seasoning salt, season salt, and, in Australia and New Zealand, chicken salt.

Additional recommended knowledge

Seasoned salt is often the standard seasoning on foods such as chicken, hot potato chips, and deep fried seafood. Most take-away shops also offer the option of "normal salt".

Chicken salt, as sold in Australia and New Zealand, generally contains chicken extracts, which are listed as the second ingredient after salt. It is therefore not suitable for strict vegetarians. However, some flavoured salts sold as chicken salt do not contain chicken extracts or concentrates. It is not related to the chicken flavouring or seasoning that is found on potato crisps, although it can be similar in appearance (both have a slight yellow colouring).

Ingredients

The ingredients vary greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer; however, most contain some or all of the following.
