Shopper’s Dictionary: Chicken Salt

What is it? A poultry-free blend of sea salt, turmeric, onion powder and garlic powder, Chicken Salt made its retail debut in September along with a successful Kickstarter campaign. The Miami couple behind Jada Spices, maker of Chicken Salt, created their blend after discovering a similar seasoning while honeymooning in Australia.

Jada recommends using Chicken Salt on fish, french fries, popcorn, eggs, grilled vegetables — and chicken. The seasoning is vegan and kosher as well as MSG- and gluten-free.

Where to find it: Available at and at South Florida retailers Price Choice, Kosher Kingdom, Perricone’s, Aroma Market and others. About $4 for a 41/2-ounce bottle.
