It's to clarify we're not just talking about, e.g., salt.

I would not write it that way. If I stumbled across that bit of garble I might even take the time to edit it out. Since spices are themselves ingredients, the Wikipedia article says Italians like extra spice on their spices!

I don't agree with that interpretation. Not all ingredients are spices!
Salt can also be a food ingredient, so why didn't you complain about "seasoned" too?
I see nothing wrong with the original.

That's not what he said. He said, 'spices are themselves ingredients...'
I know what he said. Would you care to give us your interpretation then?

We use season for salt and pepper a lot, so it makes sense to me to separate seasoning from the other flavours.
