File (Sassafras) Powder
Filé Powder has a subtle flavour with tart, citrus notes. The powder is made from young leaves of the Sassafras Albidum tree and features within Louisianan and Creole Cuisine.
Filé is most commonly used to prepare Gumbos, where it adds essential flavour and texture. The powder is always added once the meat or vegetables have finished cooking for a more intense taste!
