Following the success of its wildly popular Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning, Trader Joe's is now introducing the Mushroom & Company Multipurpose Umami Seasoning Blend.
The multipurpose seasoning is made up of a combination of kosher salt, black pepper, red pepper, mustard seed
and mushroom powder—which come together to create an umami flavor, or what is often called the "fifth taste." Naturally, the seasoning blend has the potential to enhance the flavors of any savory dish and it is versatile enough to be used on everything from breakfast toast and salads to soups and roasted vegetables.
Humans have been eating mushrooms for thousands of years but it has only been in the past few years that consumers are now avidly seeking out all things mushroom-infused, including everything from teas to snack bars.
