Frequently Asked Questions

Is pork seasoning salt-free?

No, this pork seasoning is not salt-free. The amount of salt when you use this seasoning equates to about 1 teaspoon of salt per pound of pork chops, which is Julia Child’s recommendation for how much salt to use for any kind of meat. If you’re watching your salt intake, you could reduce the amount of salt in the seasoning.
