Frequently Asked Questions
Our products are indeed all natural, organic, NON-GMO, MSG-free, non-irradiated and with exception of the Panko Bread Crumbs all products are Gluten Free. In addition, we have ZERO fillers or anti-caking agents in ANY of our spices. Our products are ALL vegan friendly and contain absolutely no dairy (yes, even the Rockin' Ranch!) When our products contain salt, it is an unprocessed, all natural sea salt.
For our dry spices and seasonings as well as our Balsamic Mosto Cotto, as long as the tins are stored in a cool, dry location (like the pantry or a cabinet NOT over the stove where it's warm) the shelf life is 2 years. This is because our products are packaged in tin, and not glass or plastic. Tin is lightproof and does not absorb the essential oils of your herbs and spices the way plastic does, so they stay fresher MUCH longer.Our oils and Deluxe Honey Mustard have a shelf life of 1 year after opening.
Because of the mixed nature of our spice blends, shaker tops would not allow the spices to come out of the cans evenly. Leafy green parts, like parsley or red peppers would be left behind and only the smaller seasonings like onion or garlic granules would come through. I
Also, because many who use our spices are on specialized diet programs, shaker tops would make it very difficult, if not impossible to accurately remove & measure the spices from the tins.
I personally travel the world to source the finest all-natural, gluten free, organic herbs & spices and proudly serve them to you. I believe you truly are what you eat and will not settle for less than the very best. Everyone I serve is worth more than cheap fillers and inferior ingredients. You'll taste the difference with your first bite- I promise.
My proprietary recipes of spice & seasoning blends, oils and condiments are made in small, artisanal batches at our facilities in the USA.

The full list of ingredients and nutritional facts are available on every product page. You are invited to consult with either myself or any of my staff by calling or emailing us for the best ways to get the most out of your Stacey Hawkins seasonings should you have any concerns.
Stacey Hawkins carries both Salt Free seasonings as well as those with salt. As we are well aware that seasonings in this industry can contain hundreds of milligrams of sodium per serving. As such, Stacey Hawkins products contain only 100% unprocessed sea salt at only 25-50mg per serving (1/4 tsp), a fraction of the content of most commercial seasonings with salt. The only seasoning with a higher content is our Sassy Sea Salt and our Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt which are both, 100% natural salt and nothing else.
