Now that research by a Harvard research team found that “excessive salt consumption is linked to 2.3 million cardiovascular deaths worldwide in 2011,” Wine Country’s all natural salt-free pioneer is tackling the problem head-on with its re-release of the original Parsley Patch Salt-free Spice Blends in an organic iteration under the brand name Engage Organics Salt-free Seasoning Blends.

“Many of the grocery stores that originally carried Parsley Patch Salt-free Spice Blends are thrilled the blends are back,” says, co-founder Pat Gage from their Engage Organics offices in Kelseyville, California. “Amazingly, customers had continued to ask for the salt-free seasonings long after Parsley Patch was sold to McCormick in 1989.”

Now, the little wine country’s allnatural, salt-free seasoning pioneer that burst onto the scene in 1980 is back in an organic rendition, under a retro-label that pays tribute to the original Chris Blum inspired Parsley Patch angel logo.

Gage and her husband, Jon, are joined in the small family business by their son, Jason Sherwood (42), who believes, too, in the company’s commitment to health and well-being by producing organic plant-based herb blends to support healthy lifestyles.

Sherwood, along with his cousin, Jeremy Fitzpatrick (36), want to insure their generation and that of their children will have access to the health benefits of the highest-quality blended spices they grew up loving. The cousins are especially pleased now that the all-natural salt-free spice blends are 100% USDA certified organic, Gluten-free, and Non-GMO verified. This was something that was not possible when Parsley Patch was launched in the 1980’s.

The home-grown company has returned to its roots and to the raves of friends and fans alike who have lamented the loss of their “secret” culinary ingredients, which had transformed many novice cooks into instant chefs.

Now all 11 Engage Organics Salt-free Seasoning Blends can be found in your local market in the price range of $3.99-$5.49. Look for Original-All-Purpose with and without sesame seeds; the famous Garlicsaltless Blend that makes the best garlic bread on the plant is back with the equally favorite Tuscany-Mix that puts zip into anything pasta. Of course, Mexi-Mix still replaces those high sodium, expensive taco seasoning packets with real flavor. Not surprisingly, Sweet-Cinn has found its way into coffee, turning it into a Starbucks’ treat. Lemon Pepper without sugar and salt is a huge cult favorite–magical on anything vegetable and poultry. Fanatically, fans are still searching chat rooms for the return of their favorite It’s-A-Dilly, which is back to turn salmon into gourmet faire.

Since the company re-launched, there are 3 new additions to the seasoning line that join some of the original Parsley Patch favorites. New fans are finding Go-Grill-A-Rub–both Hot and Mild versions, add sizzle to anything grilled. And with the current craze over eastern cuisine, Curry Creations is turning entrees into exotic flavors, while providing the antioxidant compounds of turmeric that help reduce inflammation in the body.

Besides delivering fresh anti-oxidant compounds to the diet, Engage Organics Salt-free Seasonings takes the guesswork out of how to introduce flavor instead of salt, at a time when health depends upon it.
