Wayzata Bay Spice Company was founded under several principles. Business ethics was first. Creating products in which we could be proud was second. We like to think that we’ve excelled in both areas.
To insure we are creating the finest seasonings, we start with the finest spices and herbs. Wayzata Bay uses almost forty growers, coops, exporters, importers and distributors to procure the highest-quality ingredients. Unlike many spice companies, we use the same gourmet-grade spices in our blends that we use for our individual spices and herbs. Examine our label. You won’t notice artificial flavors and colors. You won’t find words that describe laboratory-created ingredients that you can’t pronounce. You won’t see acronyms like MSG, because we don’t use it. We don’t have to: we use the finest spices and herbs in the blends that we create. You’ll taste the difference in our 100+ blends.
Much has been said lately about the amount of sodium in Americans’ diets. We couldn’t agree more, but we were saying these things over a decade ago. One difference you’ll notice about our spice blends is that there are many – about 40 – without salt. Those that have salt have just the right amount. Unlike most spice companies, we do not use salt (or sugar) as a filler. We use it as an ingredient that should have the right proportion with regard to the other ingredients in the seasoning. This makes our seasonings superior. It also means you can use less of our seasonings because there’s more flavor.
We use few allergens in our seasonings. Some ingredients, like soy sauce powder, have a flavor that’s essential to a seasoning, but it contains soy and wheat, which are allergens. We understand this is a concern, so whenever there’s room on the label, we list, in bold type, the allergens in the seasoning. This is in addition to always listing the ingredient(s) on the ingredient statement. This isn’t required by law, but we do it anyway. Our customers’ safety come first.
Speaking of safety, we were the first spice company to popularize using “seal strips” over the top of our caps. This innovative, unique way of providing tamper-resistant closures on our bottles makes our products stand out and they look much nicer than the plastic shrink bands, which oftentimes aren’t effective. Other companies have begun using seal strips, too. How does the saying go? Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery? Thanks to our competitors for once again showing that Wayzata Bay Spice Company is ahead of the curve.
When you try our spices, herbs and seasonings, you’ll taste the difference. Our products are just better. We encourage you to compare our spices with and those of any other spice company.
