FOOD siracha

Like many things life, hot sauce is too good to be true.

Woman's Health questions how much hot sauce is too much and affirms that "considering the condiment is only a microscopic zero to five calories per teaspoon, even those who are on a strict diet don’t really have to think twice about piling it on their plate whenever they want to turn up the heat". But, to what extent is that true?

Sriracha is one of the most popular spicy condiments in world and one of Amazon's best sellers in the UK. Its ingredients include chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, salt, sugar, sodium bisulfite, potassium sorbate, and xanthan gum. The last ingredient is a thickening additive that helps maintain the sauce's viscosity. The favoured sauce has one gram of sugar and 100 milligrams of salt to every teaspoon, as well as a bunch of E-number preservatives.

But you're not the only one. Celebrities such as Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton are also said to be sriracha obsessed.
