Sriracha

We've decided to mix things up here at Experts123. We're going to start doing an Experts123 Question of the Day! If you have any suggestions for our Question of the Day, tweet the link to us on Twitter @Experts123.

Today we found an interesting fact about one of the trendiest condiments to hit the United States: sriracha sauce.

What is sriracha sauce?

In fact, this will be our first question of the day. Sriracha is that spicy, thick hot sauce offered mostly in Asian cuisine, but now people are putting it on virtually everything: on hot dogs, on hamburgers, even in spaghetti! Sriracha tastes like an extremely spicy red pepper.

One of our expert contributors explains that sriracha sauce is a combination of garlic, chili peppers, vinegar, sugar and salt. No wonder it's so tasty! It originated in Thailand, and the traditional Thai sriracha is thinner and spicier.

Celebrities and health foodies love sriracha because it has less calories than ketchup and has been known to boost your metabolism.
