Our ingredients are better. Very simply, we make products the old fashioned way — we use whole fruits and vegetables and real things from the earth.
Marie Sharp’s products are 100% CLEAN — our pesticide-free, NON-GMO vegetables are sustainably raised by the same Mennonite families, who for decades, have hand-harvested our unique heirloom varietals.
Our ingredients start FRESH.
What does this mean for you?
1. We do not ferment our peppers. The day they are picked is the day they are chopped, retaining all the juicy goodness. Most sauces use fermented mash that is stored over long periods of time.
2. Common Mexican sauces with water listed first is an indication that the producer has cut corners and used powdered ingredients (i.e. Cholula, Tapatio, El Yucateco, etc). Water is needed to rehydrate (or reconstitute) processed powdered ingredients, that are dead and lifeless.
3. Our sauces are not vinegar-based, like typical hot sauces, which can contain more than 40% white distilled vinegar. Marie Sharp's Pepper Sauces are based on whole fruits and vegetables that compliment foods, rather than overpower meals with acidic vinegar pungency.
