Filé powder is also known as filé, gumbo filé, ground sassa-fras leaves and filé powder.

Filé powder can be found in the spice area of most food markets. It should be stored in a cool, dark place for no more than 6 months.



Choctaw Indians from the Louisiana bayou country are said to be the first to use this seasoning made from the ground, dried leaves of the sassafras tree.

Filé powder has become an integral ingredient of Creole cuisine.
