Do your sauces contain MSG?
Absolutely not. None of our sauces contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) or any of their related names. Our ingredients are natural, simple, and organic. We also don’t use any “processing aids.” All ingredients are listed on the label. Enjoy real food.
How hot is the hot version of your sauces?
Whether you eat the medium or hot versions of our sauces the heat you taste and feel is not the “boom in your face” type. Customers describe it as more of a slow release heat surrounded by flavor. In terms of Scoville heat units (SHU) the peppers we use are rated as follows: Ascent Thai peppers 50,000- 100,000, Japones 40,000- 100,000, and Habanero Pepper 100,000–350,000. The specific peppers included for each sauce is listed on the label on the ingredients panel.
Are your sauces more hot or more flavor?
Our sauces and flavor forward with a combination of heat and flavor. Our sauces are designed for pleasure, not pain. Those who like it hot prefer the hot versions of our sauces and those who are mild or medium leaning prefer the medium version of our sauces.
I prefer mild when it comes to spicy. Can I dilute your sauces?
For the peanut sauce you can easily dilute with water or coconut milk or other types of milk, too. For the original dipping and citrus infused sauces you can easily dilute them with mayonnaise or sour cream. You can also add juice or broth to any sauce to lower the heat paying careful attention to the flavor profile. You might find your favorite ratio by experimenting.
Why don't you use vinegar in your sauces?
Personal preference and flavor. Vinegar is used to increase the acid of sauces so they can be better preserved. We use pure organic lemon which is even more acidic on the pH scale than vinegar and gives us great flavor when combined with our other ingredients.
How long will your sauces last?
Our sauces are canned to be shelf stable. They can last on your shelf for a year or longer – but why would wait that long to enjoy? After opening, the sauces do need to be refrigerated and should be consumed within about 6 weeks. If your waiting longer than that then you’re not sharing enough great food. See recipe ideas. You can also freeze the remaining sauce after opening to enjoy another time.
