I know condiments can get dicey but what is the verdict on louisiana's pure Crystal hot sauce. Here are ingredients:

Aged red cayenne red peppers, distilled vinegar, salt.

Ha ha ha... I just posted a similar quote, tongue in cheek, about a Coming to America" quote... it's more fun to say it while impersonating Reverend Brown! But seriously - the only "processed" ingredient is vinegar (which I would call "fermented"), which also occurs naturally in some foods, it's usually used in low doses, cayenne, while a nightshade, can also have some beneficial effects, so if it makes you happy, why not? If it had wheat or HFCS or other junk, then pass, but it doesn't, so if nothing else, anything that makes you salivate more helps with digestion, right?? Yummmmm...

Seriously. I think red peppers might be nightshades, so if you're avoiding nightshades, you might want to avoid hot sauces. But woe be to you then. I love me some hot sauce.

My thoughts exactly. You can have my hot sauce when you pry it from my cold dead hand.

If hot sauce is wrong, I don't want to be right!

My opinion is that sauces like this are perfectly fine from a sugar / insulin perspective, there is no sugar, hey it's not a whole lot different than salt and pepper. The Tabasco web site says that one 1-tsp serving has zero calories. How far wrong can you go? It isn't like you can eat enough of the stuff to move the calorie needle.

Ketchup on the other hand is about 25-30% sugar, so ketchup-y hot sauces tend also to have sugar and other additives. I am a fan of Sriracha sauce, but it falls into this category and is about 25% sugar. One 1-Tbsp serving of ketchup has about a teaspoon of sugar.
