PIN this info about Spike to find it later!
Out of all the products I’ve spotlighted for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks I’m guessing the one I use most often is Spike Seasoning. This amazing blend of spices is something I discovered many (many!) years ago and now I use it in almost every dish I make that has savory flavors. And every year when the calendar switches over to the new year my blog gets a lot of readers who are new to the site, so I am reminding everyone about this favorite seasoning blend that I use so often!
Truly my love for Spike has never wavered through all the years I’ve been using it. And Spike has been sold for more than 50 years, so I think it’s safe to say I’m not the only one who enjoys the flavor boost it adds to recipes!
What is Spike Seasoning?
Spike is a blend of dried herbs and spices that was originally created by Gayelord Hauser and is made by Modern Products. I used to buy it in my regular grocery store, but now I can’t find it there and I buy Spike Seasoning at Amazon.com. (affiliate link) In stores that carry it, it will often be found in the nutrition or health foods section.
What Ingredients are in Spike Seasoning?
Here’s a list of the 39 ingredients that are in Spike: Salt and sea salt, de-fatted nutri-soy granules, granular toasted onion, nutritional yeast, granular garlic, celery root granules, ground dill, horseradish granules, mustard powder, lemon peel, orange powder, parsley flakes, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, white pepper, rose hips powder, summer savory, mushroom powder, safflower, parsley powder, white onion powder, spinach powder, tomato powder, sweet Hungarian paprika, ground celery seed, cayenne pepper, ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground ginger, ground coriander, ground fenugreek, ground cloves, cinnamon powder, plus a delightful herbal bouquet of the best Greek oregano, French tarragon, French sweet basil, French marjoram, French rosemary and Spanish Thyme.
Does Spike Seasoning contain salt?
Spike comes with or without salt. I buy the original version that has salt, but if you’re watching your sodium intake I would chose the Salt-Free Spike. (affiliate link)
Is Spike Gluten-Free?
According to their website, Spike is gluten-free. Through the years I have heard from a couple of people with other food allergies who were sensitive to it, so if you are sensitive to certain things I would check the list of ingredients.
What types of recipes are good with Spike Seasoning?
I love the flavor Spike adds to egg dishes, salads, stews and soups, marinades, roasted vegetables, and casseroles. I think it adds a little extra something to any savory dish where you want a complex blend of flavors.

My husband loves food with his salt! Now on a low sodium diet so we found Spike and he uses it for everything. Much much less sodium then regular salt. (and we cound sodium grams each day) Glad we found it!
Yes, I love it and the way it adds flavor. It sounds like you might be using the Spike product called Vege-Sal. There is also a salt-free Spike Seasoning.
I’m looking for a good spike season for low sodium diet?
Just look for the Salt Free Spike Seasoning. I would check Amazon.com if you don’t find it in the store.
Wouldn’t eat corn on the cob without Spike!! I first learned about Spike in the cookbook “In the Kitchen With Rosie” ( Oprah’s personal chef when Oprah lost all that weight.) Great on all roasted veggies. Haven’t been able to find it in Tucson since moving here so I order it on line. It’s the best!!!!
Fun to hear from a fellow Spike fan! It’s funny because I had that cookbook but I’m pretty sure I had discovered Spike long before then! I am pretty much getting it from Amazon all the time now too, seems to be hard to find in Utah these days.
Love Spike and have since the 70’s. We have it with cauliflower and carrots with breadcrumbs with loads of butter and garlic and Spike. So yummy. We also shake loads of it on chicken thighs and toss them in the oven.
Thank you for creating it.
That’s about how long I’ve used it too. I certainly didn’t create it though!
Looking for the best recipe for a “Bible Bread Sandwich”. Cabbbage slaw, with Spike Seasonings, white cheese, sunflower seeds, sprouts (or other vegetables on a wheat pita or wrap type bread. There are a couple online. I like the ones that have mashed avacado, and mayo as the base to start. i found two recipes, but there has to be others! I love the sandwiches. I bought them at Larsen Herb Shop in Orem, Utah. Original recipe lost. They are all good, but just have not got the right combination yet. I just make them to taste right now.
Sorry Cindy, but I have never heard of that before!
I always add it when I sauté cauliflower rice. It makes the cauliflower sing!!
I like the sound of that!
