Have you heard about umami? You've most certainly tasted it, even if you've never heard the word. Umami is the word used to describe the fifth taste – in addition to sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. Taken from Japanese, the word translates to 'pleasant savory taste', and really, it's just that. And it's really just something you're going to want to put on everything.
To create this Umami Seasoning Blend, we began with kosher salt, and used a flavor base of porcini and white button mushrooms – earthy mushroom flavor really is the cornerstone of umami, which is why we named it Mushroom & Company. The ingredient list also includes onion, mustard seed, red & black pepper, and thyme. If you follow an eating plan like Paleo or Whole 30, this type of seasoning is a staple. If you follow an eating plan like we do, also known as Anything and Everything, Trader Joe's Mushroom & Company Multipurpose Umami Seasoning Blend will elevate the flavors of Anything and Everything, a sprinkle at a time.
