Natural Sriracha (hot sauce) recipe.

This morning, I got a tweet from @marcalt:

Is there a sriracha sauce that doesn’t contain potassium sorbate, sodium bisulfite and xanthan gum? #sriracha

Now, I’m a hot sauce lover. If I’m not sweating, blowing my nose, coughing…I’m not enjoying my meal. But I’d never checked the ingredients on Sriracha, the tricky stuff! I buy it at Whole Foods, but that don’t mean it ain’t full of stuff that’ll cook and twist and toxicfy my insides. 

So I retweeted Marc’s astute question. Ah, the wonders of twitter: within five minutes I got this message back from the big wide world of virtual reality. Click image below for recipe:

    sriracha has msg in it

    No, sriracha does not have msg, look at the ingredients. But it now has sodium bisulfite, which I hate. Potasium sorbate is actually in fruits, and xanthum gum is a plant too.

    i should have said bacteria for Xanthan gum.
