Hot Sauce - a look into our most popular sauces with a kick!
Chilli plants have been a part of human diets since about 7,500 BC. The first type of hot sauce is believed to originate from early inhabitants of Mexico, Central America, and South America as a mixture of chilli peppers and water. Then colonization led to an evolution of hot sauce with the introduction of ingredients from all over the world. Each area of the world started to discover their own signature flavours and recipes. Eventually, hot sauce began to be mass-produced and sold in all corners of the world.
