Who invented Bacon Salt?
Now it exists, Bacon Salt and the attempt to make everything taste like bacon seems obvious. However, nobody thought it up until a guy called Justin had the idea back in 2007. Since then, he partnered up with his friend Dave to form J&D's Foods and the bacontrepreneurs launched Bacon Salt to the world.
How do you suggest using Bacon Salt?
In my house, Bacon Salt has replaced salt, which is good for the blood pressure because it's way lower sodium (135mg for Bacon Salt vs. 600mg for table salt). But really, the only limit is your imagination. You can put it on anything - just experiment! (And if you come up with anything particularly nice, be sure to let us know ). Just beware, Bacon Salt can be highly addictive.
What's the difference between the flavours?
Original - a more savory version of Bacon Salt, it's like a straight bacon punch in the mouth. It's best with scrambled eggs or omelets, salads and sandwiches. It also combines really nicely with butter, which goes great on pasta, green veggies (we love green beans) and popcorn. You can also use a butter flavored popcorn seasoning or something like butter buds in combination in lieu of the butter.
Hickory - a smokier version of Bacon Salt, but not in that bitter liquid-smokey kind of way. It's actually my personal favorite. This flavour pairs really well with any kind of potato product - you can baconize your baked potato, french fries, hash browns, tots, you name it. It's also great with grilled meats and fish - using it as a steak rub overnight, finish a burger with it, or throw it on salmon are all great. It is also amazing on corn on the cob.
Peppered - this flavor is more sharp than spicy (just like peppered bacon), but there's definitely a kick there. Some of our customers (and employees) love it so much that they use Peppered almost exclusively on everything mentioned above and then some (as an example, tacos and fajitas are great). It's also great in Bloody Mary's or as a rim on tequila shots.
Natural - this version is gluten-free (if you have a wheat allergy), low in sodium like the rest of the flavors, and doesn't contain any soy proteins (which are like smaller versions of bacon bits in the other flavors). It comes out almost like a bacon powder, and we think it's outstanding on chicken in particular, but also pairs nicely with eggs and potatoes as well as many of the other items mentioned above.
Is it healthy?
Yes! One of the best things about Bacon Salt is that it is low sodium and has zero calories and zero fat. The same delicious bacony flavour with no more guilt.
Is it vegetarian?
Indeedie. All flavours of Bacon Salt are miraculously 100% suitable for vegetarians. What's more, the Natural flavour is also suitable for vegans. Hoorah!
Is it Kosher?
Yes, there are rabbis out there with enough chutzpah to certify things with bacon in the name as kosher. Fortunately, there is no such thing as eternal damnation in the Jewish faith. If you keep kosher, the good news is that all of J&D's products are Kof-K certified. Hickory and Peppered flavours are Kof-K Parve, while Original and Natural flavours are Kof-K Dairy. Please visit the J&Ds website to see Bacon Salt's Kosher Certification.
