What’s the Difference Between Hot Sauce and Sriracha?

The hottest chili peppers, like the habanero, are what is known as “super-hot.” These peppers contain more than a hundred times the amount of capsaicin that’s in a jalapeno pepper. They can be two hundred times hotter than that.

Sriracha sauce is made from red jalapeno peppers, which are about fifty times milder than super-hots but still much spicier than a bell pepper. So it’s fair to say that there is a pretty big difference between sriracha and hot sauce.

Taste is another important difference. The taste of sriracha comes from the type of peppers used to make it (although most store-bought srirachas have other ingredients mixed in), whereas hot sauce usually has an added ingredient called “heat” or “capsaicin extract” that gives it its firey flavor and heat.

For people who want to enjoy the taste of hot sauce but don’t want all the heat, Tabasco makes a version called “Tabasco Green,” which uses jalapeno peppers instead of super-hots.**

It’s both hotter and sweeter than Sriracha, which is why I prefer it. But that’s just my opinion, of course.

I’ve heard people say that Sriracha is “good for everything,” but Peppersmith isn’t as good a hot sauce for everything as Tabasco is. It does add a little sweetness to the food it’s in, so if you’re using it for a marinade or a dip, it will add a little extra dimension. In terms of actual heat, though, I think that’s more of a marketing ploy.

Taste-wise, Sriracha is a perfect balance between hot and sweet, with the vinegar adding the kick to the sauce. If you like hot sauce on your food or in your recipes, do give both sauces a try.

Sriracha is hot sauce, but not all hot sauce is Sriracha. That’s the takeaway from a trademark battle between Huy Fong Foods, maker of the popular Red Rooster Sriracha Sauce, and California-based Chili Pepper Company Inc., which sells Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. According to Food Business News, the companies reached a settlement in late 2012 that allows Huy Fong to continue using the term “Sriracha” on its products as long as it’s accompanied by the words “Rooster Sauce.”

The terms of the settlement are confidential, but both companies have moved on to bigger and better things: Huy Fong has introduced a new line of sauces called Chili Garlic that look and taste like a thinner version of its famous sauce, while Chile Pepper has launched an amped-up Sriracha with more garlic and chili peppers.

But what exactly is Sriracha? The word refers to both the town in Thailand where the sauce was invented and the hot sauce itself. Sriracha is made from sun-ripened chilies ground into a paste, mixed with salt and vinegar, then bottled. While there’s no standard recipe for Sriracha, most versions contain garlic and molasses, while others are sp

Sriracha is a type of hot sauce that originated in the town of Si Racha, Thailand. In the U.S., it’s most commonly used as an ingredient for noodle dishes like phở and lo mein, but it is also popular on pizza, fish tacos, and burgers. If you’ve never tried Sriracha before, it’s a spicy, pungent condiment with a sweet and tangy flavor.

Taste aside, there are two main differences between Sriracha and other hot sauces: consistency and origin. When it comes to consistency, Sriracha is thinner than your average hot sauce; however, it has a much longer shelf life because of this (meaning you won’t have to throw it out after only one use). As far as origins go, Sriracha was invented in Thailand while Tabasco is a Louisiana product (although there are now factories all over the world).

If you’re already familiar with Hot Sauce 101, what does Sriracha taste like? The best way to describe its flavor is to say that Sriracha tastes more like garlic than other hot sauces do. It’s also more vinegary than Tabasco or Tapatio and less sweet. While some reviewers have noticed both

I’m not a hot sauce expert. I just like hot sauce, and I’ve noticed that many of the people who make and sell hot sauce don’t care much about the truth. They have names for their sauces that don’t tell you anything about what’s in them. They have labels on their bottles that are so generic or so mysterious that you can’t tell what ingredients are actually in there.

Taste is subjective, but labeling should be objective. You should be able to look at a label and know what’s in there without having to call the company and ask. If it’s clear that they’re just making things up, why would you want to buy their products?

It’s not too hard to figure out the basics of hot sauce, though. Below is a list of all the ingredients in Sriracha:

Chili Pepper, Sugar, Salt, Garlic*, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Water, Acetic Acid**, Xanthan Gum**.



Sriracha, the rooster sauce made by Huy Fong Foods, is one of the most popular hot sauces in America. But it’s been under threat from a lawsuit and soaring demand that has made it hard to find. Here’s what you need to know about Sriracha, the rooster sauce…

How was Sriracha created?

Sriracha, which is actually called “Sot Siracha” (pronounced “sue-ro sa-ra”), was first created in the city of Si Racha in Thailand. The chili sauce was named after the city and the rooster that appeared on the Si Racha crest.

Toward the end of World War II, Chinese soldiers who had fought alongside American troops began moving into areas around Si Racha, including San Diego. One enterprising man named David Tran started making his own version of Sriracha in 1980. He began selling it locally out of his van until he was able to open up a factory and begin selling it widely. In 2005 he sold his company to Huy Fong Foods for $60 million.

Huy Fong Foods produces about 40 million bottles of Sriracha a year for distribution throughout America.
