Let's Unlock the Secret of Seasoning to Lock in a Dish's Taste and Fla

Ordering food online or dining out is a growing culture in the US. A family with a slightly higher annual average income of USD $200K spends USD $8K on outside food. This trend is more common in the age groups 45 to 54. So, what do Americans eat more? Snacking is one of the essential parts of their diets, accounting for 20-22% of their energy source. On a single day, they eat about one to three snacks. Reports suggest over 90% of adults do this. Reasons behind such a high consumption rate can be emotional, satisfaction, or energy requirements.

It's good news for the food services business, for sure. If you compete in this space, you must work on your products to give your visitors a unique taste.


Whether a healthy or tasty snack, its flavor should be attractive for the palate. Seasoning plays a crucial role in this. Even a simple addition of salt can do the trick. However, people expect more from you regarding aroma, texture, and taste. Your snacks should give their jaded palate an exciting experience that lingers in their sensory memory and makes them crave more.

Since preparing different seasonings in-house is a lot of work, you can use custom food blending services for dry blends. You can use them to give your dish the desired crunch, color, texture, and look.

Here is a quick look at dishes that become better with seasoning.

Common Dishes

Whether beef and pork burgers or sausages, these recipes need special seasoning of pepper and other ingredients to taste heavenly. Beef preparations especially demand spicy seasoning for a flavorful experience. It can contain garlic powder, basil powder, a variety of peppers, and a mix of thyme. Since some seasoning companies offer customization, you can tell them your preferences to create the dish of your imagination. Likewise, pizzas and pasta typically taste bland without any seasoning. But oregano and dried herbs can transform them immediately. Or, a mixture of garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and red paprika will be perfect for tacos. Otherwise, these don't taste as great as they should. You can also order different pudding seasonings for black and white puddings.

Usage of the Seasoning

Application of the seasoning is another area that can make a massive difference to a dish. The first rule is sprinkling it evenly on food for uniform consistency of the taste. The other critical thing is to apply it on both sides without skimping. A generous amount of seasoning can increase a dish's appearance and flavor by manifolds. Some people rub food surfaces with seasoning, believing it will enhance the texture. However, sprinkling is always better for a food item's presentation and taste. Finally, you can taste your preparation multiple times before it's ready to be added to the menu. Achieving a balance of flavors and textures is essential.

Your restaurant kitchen rack should be filled with all types of dry blends so you can create and build layers of flavors with them. It will be possible only when you source custom-made options from a reliable manufacturer.
