I recently received a giant box of samples from two food companies, Atoria’s Family Bakery and Spicemode, along with some ideas for using their products with Thanksgiving leftovers.
Before accepting the samples, I did what I usually do when food company public relations people approach me about trying samples — I asked if the products are low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar. A lot of companies never respond to those questions. But I received a very nice response from the owner of Spicemode through the PR person.
“Compared to other sauces and seasoning on the market our products are on the lowest in salt and fat.
“The seasonings are fat free, low sodium and sugar free with the exception of Sweet Chilifire, which has a tiny amount of sugar.
“The Masala spice blends are fat free, salt free and sugar free.
“The sauces are low fat and do contain organic cane sugar. Sodium is low but those with sodium health issues typically think it is high but they don’t realize that they do not eat the entire jar. “
I appreciate the transparency and the honesty, which was why I accepted the samples.
