Q: What is SDSauce Original Flavor?
SDSauce Original Flavor is our Signature sauce. It is a RAW & UNPROCESSED Thai Style Hot Sauce, commonly known as "Nam Jim" sauce throughout Thailand. Its popularity is due to its perfect balance of spicy, sweet, salty, and sour flavors and an ideal amount of heat. This sauce is ubiquitous in Thai cuisine and is a staple in most households. The "SD" in SDSauce stands for "Spicy & Delicious," which perfectly encapsulates its outstanding taste. Made from fresh, raw ingredients, this sauce bursts with flavor and spice, making it the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
Q: What is SDSauce Ginger Vegan Flavor?
Our Ginger Vegan Thai Hot Sauce is a unique condiment that perfectly balances traditional Thai flavors - salty, spicy, sweet, and sour - along with the distinct taste and aroma of freshly grated ginger. Made from raw and unprocessed ingredients, including fresh ginger, Thai chili peppers, bean paste, soy sauces, garlic, cilantro, and cane sugar, this sauce is a vegan-friendly option free from animal-based products or byproducts. Unlike our Original Flavor, it does not contain Fish Sauce. Originating from Thailand, this sauce is famously paired with the famous chicken & rice dish - Khao Man Gai. Still, it can also elevate the flavors of your other favorite meals.

Q: How can I use SDSauce?
SDSauce is a versatile condiment that embodies Thai cuisine's unique and explosive flavors. Our sauces can be used in many ways, such as dipping, stir-fry, seasonings, dressing, or marinade. It pairs exceptionally well with seafood, including shrimp, oysters, scallops, sushi, and baked/grilled/steamed fish. In fact, it can be used as a replacement for cocktail sauce or hot sauce and brushed onto meats on the grill for an added Thai twist. Besides seafood, SDSauce adds a delectable kick to breakfast eggs, sandwiches, rice dishes, salads, and even pizza! We encourage you to discover delicious ways to use SDSauce and share your unique creations with us on our social media pages.
Q: How is SDSauce made?
The essence of our SDSauces lies in the use of fresh and vibrant Thai bird chili peppers.

We take pride in our raw and never cooked sauces, using only the freshest and most natural ingredients.

Q: Why is my sauce a slightly different color from the last bottle I purchased?
We are committed to using only the freshest produce to create our sauces. As a result, the color of our sauces may vary slightly due to the different colors of the peppers and other fresh ingredients we use. Please be assured that the taste and quality of our products remain the same, regardless of their color.

Q: What's the shelf life of SDSauces?
Our SDSauce is made from the finest, freshest ingredients, including freshly squeezed citrus juices and other savory elements.
