Aussie Chicken Salt
The bright yellow salt you remember eating from any local Australian takeaway or fish and chip shop. The real deal, not the powdery nonsense sold in supermarkets.
- Suitable for vegetarians.
- Gluten Free.
Chicken salt (like all salt) is hygroscopic and susceptible to clumping by absorbing moisture in the air. It doesn’t affect the favour, just more difficult to sprinkle over food. This is why we use Mylar zip lock sealed pouches for their airtight seal. When it comes to packaging, we remove all the air in the pouch before heat sealing it in addition to the Mylar zip lock to eliminate all traces of moisture… reaching you in perfect condition.
To keep your chicken salt dry remember to flatten your pouch before sealing the Mylar zip lock to keep it protected from moisture. If you’re using one of our shakers, spin the lid to closed after use. If you’re in a very humid environment then place the shaker in a zip lock bag after use to keep moisture out. Adding long grain white rice to a pouch or shaker helps to dry out clumping chicken salt.
Whilst chicken salt is designed to be shaken directly on chips (and it is exactly as sold here all over Australia) you might find chicken salt has a flavour which is too strong. Mix chicken salt and normal table salt in a ratio of 1:1 for a slightly more gentle flavour.
