Mrs. Dash is a brand name of seasoning marketed by B&G Foods. The best known varieties of Mrs. Dash are granulated mixtures of dried herbs and spices which are sold in small plastic shaker bottles.
The product line was originally developed by Carol Bernick, now Executive Chairman of the company. In the 1980s while a marketing executive at the firm, she was frustrated with the products available to flavor the nutritious meals she prepared at home for her family. She invented a salt-free blend of her own to fill the need for a convenient way to flavor the food without using salt. The original formula, which was first marketed in 1981, was developed with a variety of spice suppliers. Before settling on the name "Mrs. Dash," the company considered the name "Mrs. Pinch."
The brand was formerly owned by Alberto-Culver; following the merger with Unilever, it sold its food business to B&G Foods.

Famous quotes containing the word dash:
“Is a man too strong and fierce for society, and by temper and position a bad citizen,a morose ruffian, with a dash of the pirate in him;Mnature sends him a troop of pretty sons and daughters, who are getting along in the dames classes at the village school, and love and fear for them smooths his grim scowl to courtesy. Thus she contrives to intenerate the granite and the feldspar, takes the boar out and puts the lamb in, and keeps her balance true.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
