Low Sodium Lawry’s Seasoned Salt Recipe

While at the grocery store this afternoon I refreshed my bottle of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. As I’m in the process of trying to switch to salt substitutes however, I figured I’d try and come up with a recipe for a homemade version of Lawry’s which uses a salt substitute. Traditional Lawry’s contains 380 grams of sodium per 1/4 tsp, or about 16% RDA.

The Lawry’s bottle lists the following ingredients: Salt, sugar, spices (including paprika, and turmeric), onion, cornstarch, and garlic.

There are a number of recipes on the net for making Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. Well, actually there’s one recipe which is on several sites:

  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • I figure that if you substitute the salt in the above recipe with either Cardia or Nu-Salt sodium substitutes, I’ll get all the yummy taste of Lawry’s without the sodium.
