Author Notes

When you make sure that every meal, even snacks, include all 6 tastes, you know your meal will satisfy! Sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, astringent are present in this seasoning. The 6 flavors signal to your body that it is well nourished so you are less likely to have cravings later. These spices ensure that your body digests the corn fully. Keep a jar of it by your stove and use a light dusting to jazz up sandwiches, salads, or soups too ! —Eden Tosch
