Gluten is a protein found in most grains, including wheat, barley, and rye. And while it is a protein like a boiled egg or a piece of chicken, there’s one essential difference to gluten: It provides no essential nutrients to the body. Zero vitamins. Zip. Zilch.
In fact, for some people, gluten actually negatively impacts their health. For example, people with celiac disease have a negative immune reaction that is triggered by eating gluten, while others suffer from digestive issues, fatigue, and chronic inflammation.
When it comes to the ingredient, it’s easy to remember the obvious foods that contain it. Think: bread, pasta, pizza, cake.
But what about the foods you don’t think to check when scanning for gluten? Like, ketchup, honey mustard, and hot sauce.
Well… to our gluten-free friends (or those of you who are thinking of adopting the lifestyle), we have good news: All of our sauces here at Spirit & Co. are gluten-free. Yes, you read that right. Not one of our five sauces— from our Irish Whiskey & Honey Mustard to our Vodka & Italian Tomato Ketchup— contain any gluten.
Long gone are the days of trying to navigate all the condiments that are a landmine for wheat additives. If you want to add some hot sauce to your gluten-free breakfast tacos, simply turn to our Tequila & Green Chile Hot Sauce. Want to cook your beau a romantic gluten-free steak dinner? Opt for our Cabernet Sauvignon & Steak Sauce.
With grilling season coming up, our sauces are also the perfect way to cut corners. Whether you’re hosting a get together or venturing into a friend’s backyard, it helps knowing that there is a condiment brand that’s 100% gluten-free.
Oh, and PS: The next time someone tells you gluten-free food tastes bland, share a meal spiced up with one (or more) of our sauces. They'll concede that gluten-free food can, in fact, taste great!
