Now before we go further, let's talk about using store-bought ranch seasoning. It isn't the healthiest option around, but it is quick, convenient, and affordable. Unfortunately, store-bought ranch seasoning usually has lots of sodium and normally contains both MSG and maltodextrin. It also contains some other preservatives and hard-to-pronounce ingredients.
Depending on your diet and health needs, this may be a deal-breaker for you, or you may not mind. No judgment; choose the option that is best for you. For a healthier option, you can make your own ranch seasoning at home. It tastes just as good and is made with natural ingredients, many of which you may already have. It just takes a little longer.
