March 4, 2017 - Food
Sweetgreen’s hot sauce is the result of 6-8 months work in their lab. They wanted to craft a spicy condiment that had less sugar than Sriracha.
So what are the ingredients in sweetgreen’s new “THE HEAT” hot sauce? Well, according to an email the company sent out a couple weeks ago, the ingredients in the hot sauce are as follows:
- Fresno chiles
- Chipotle chili powder
- Tomato paste
- Apple cider vinegar
The main ingredient that gives their hot sauce the kick is Fresno Chiles. The nutritional value of their hot sauce isn’t too bad either with only 10 calories per serving. To compare, most dressings at the same serving size is over 100 calories serving. Here’s the full nutritional breakdown of sweetgreen’s THE HEAT hot sauce (the last row in each image).
As with all their dressings, there’s no Transfat. The hot sauce has one gram of sugar per serving, but is relatively low in sodium compared to other dressings/sauces at sweetgreen. If you’re looking for something low in calories, but like to drench your salad, the hot sauce isn’t a bad idea (if you can handle it).
