The History of Big Axe Spice!
"I've got an axe to grind with salt!"
In 2004, I had an unexpected open-heart surgery to replace my mitral valve. One of the many changes I had to make in my life was addressing my excessive salt intake. Managing my heart disease became my number one priority. Let’s just say I had an "axe to grind with salt!" I was not happy with the available options for salt-free seasonings on the market at that time. I realized I needed to make my own blend of herbs and spices, creating a SALT FREE blend, all while keeping a bold taste. In 2015, my friends and family talked me into selling my blend at Whole Foods Market when they came to town. This is how Big Axe Spice became not only what helped save my life, but also our family business.
The Big Axe goal is to provide a healthful option that makes it easier to lower your family’s daily salt intake, all while providing our valued customers with the finest natural herbs and spices, which we know will be ever-present in your family kitchen, as well as ours!
We started as an Ohio Cottage Food Operation and operated under the Ohio Department of Agriculture Cottage Food Operation Guidelines. We are also honored to be partners with the Ohio Proud organization. Recently we have expanded to a new location with a brand new commercial kitchen and got licensed by the Ohio Department of the USDA to sell our products nationwide -all across the United States! :)
Big Axe Spice blends include only herbs and spices - no salt, no preservatives, and no gluten. It doesn't matter how much you use, you'll never over-salt your food like with other blends. Increase the flavor - not your blood pressure! Big Axe Spice produces its blends from spices and herbs that are certified by the SQF Institute and we include locally-grown herbs and peppers when seasonally available as well. Visit our All Natur'al page for scientific and medical benefits from each herb. Our products contain minute amounts of these said herbs. The more of our blend you add, the spicier and "warmer" it gets. Add a little to flavor, or add MORE to intensify your flavors in an exponential fashion. You don't have to salt your food to give it more flavor with Big Axe Spice.
