How paleo is Bacon Hot Sauce?

Answered on August 19, 2014

One of the things I love about this site is everyone's ability to see shades of gray. I know it isn't paleo, but here is the ingredient list. What are your thoughts on the last three ingredients? I am not a chemist- are these things very artificial, commonly found in broccoli, or somewhere in between?

well i mean, they probably wouldn't call one thing two things on the same label. i have a hunch in this case the "natural flavor" is where the "bacon" comes in.

Autolyzed Yeast Extract may sound ok but be aware it is basically the same as MSG.

Add in a chopped tomatoes,some unfiltered apple cider vinegar and a date or 2 for sweetness.Cook for about 15min and whizz in the blender adding a bit of water to thin it out.Its all to taste so add in more of whatever floats ya.

I don't eat anything with distilled vinegar, personally. It's a cheap byproduct of the food processing industry and it's almost always made from gluten containing grains or GMO corn. I stopped there, the last few ingredients aren't even part of my reality, they didn't make it from my eye to my brain, let alone my mouth.

Personal choice but for me, not so much. I tend to stop reading and put something back on the shelf when I reach an ingredient that I can't pronounce or easily identify.

I'm pretty sure Autolyzed Yeast Extract is a euphemism for MSG. I always thought that "natural flavors" might be too, but I guess they wouldn't list TWO euphemisms for the same thing, so hmmm.

Either way, I wouldn't eat it.

A quick wiki search will find....

Xanthan gum may be derived from a variety of source products that are themselves common allergens, such as corn, wheat, dairy, or soy.
