Why Low Sodium Taco Seasoning?
Well, as we all know for the past few decades’ salt has gained a bad reputation; it has been linked to heart diseases, high blood pressure, and even kidney failure. However, studies have shown that not everyone has been affected in the same way by this mineral.
That is why I leave up to you how much salt would you should be using in this recipe, I give you a low-sodium option which you can increase or decrease as you desire.
How do I make this Taco Seasoning FODMAP?
You can by reducing the amount of garlic and onion to 1/4 tsp of Garlic Scape Powder which is been tested by Monash University recently and certified low FODMAP. Also, use green onion powder instead of the regular one.

- Adjust the chili to your desired hotness. I am not Mexican, although I can tolerate spicy hot food but not to a super high level, for me, this is the perfect amount, not too spicy and not too weak, a nice heat after the first bite but not intolerable.
