Q: What is SDSauce?

SDSauce is a raw & unprocessed Thai Style Hot Sauce commonly known throughout Thailand as "Nam Jim" sauce. It is a wonderful balance of the 4 traditional Thai flavors typically found in authentic Thai cuisine - a perfect combination of salty, spicy, sweet, and sour flavors with the perfect amount of heat. It can be used as a dipping sauce, stir-fry sauce, condiment, dressing, or marinade. It adds an amazing burst of flavor and spice unlike anything you have ever tasted before. SD stands for Spicy & Delicious, of course!

SDSauce pairs especially well with all kinds of seafood but can be used on just about any type of food. Ideal for seafoods like shrimp, oysters, scallops, sushi, and baked/grilled/steamed fish. Use it to replace cocktail sauce, hot sauce, or brush onto meats on the grill. We love to put it on our breakfast eggs, sandwiches, rice dishes, salads, shellfish, and pizza too. We are sure you can find some other delicious ways to use it and when you do, please be sure to let us know on our social media pages!

Q: How is SDSauce made?

At the heart of our SDSauces you'll find fresh Thai bird chili peppers. We add fresh squeezed lime juice, aromatic cilantro, garden-fresh garlic cloves, cane sugar, and our very own special blend of savory spices. Our sauces are raw and never cooked. We exclusively use fresh & raw ingredients and never add MSG or any artificial flavorings or preservatives. Please visit our product pages for ingredient listings, allergens, and nutrition facts.

Q: Where is SDSauce made?

SDSauce is manufactured at The Entrepreneur Space 36-46 37th St, Long Island City, NY 11101.
We hand craft our sauces weekly so we can guarantee a fresh batch with every order.

Q: Why is my sauce a slightly different color from the last bottle I purchased?

Due to the nature of some ingredients, the color may vary. We use fresh produce for all our sauces. The sauce color may vary based on the colors of the peppers and other fresh produce that we use. Give the bottle a good shake before pouring and rest assured it still maintains the same fresh burst of delicious flavor and spice!

Q: What's the shelf life of SDSauces?

SDSauce contains fresh squeezed citrus juices and other savory ingredients. These low PH ingredients, when combined together, act as a highly effective natural preservative.
