Sriracha sauce has taken the nation by storm, igniting the taste buds of foodies everywhere. It has become a beloved condiment for everything from pho to pizza. Here at Wing Nien Foods, we can’t get enough of sriracha either. As a result, we’re working on several exciting twists on this versatile spicy sauce!
But before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s start from the beginning, shall we? Before we could start developing our own versions of sriracha, we had to educate ourselves on exactly what goes into this sauce, and where it comes from.

Authenticity is essential to every product made at WN Foods. The best way to ensure a sauce is authentic is to learn about its history. In the case of sriracha sauce, many people think it is a Vietnamese sauce. However, its true origin is Thailand. It was created in a town named Si Racha, then became massively popular all over Thailand before spreading to Vietnam and the USA.
With each country it reached, the sauce evolved to fit local tastes. In Thailand, it is made of a traditional mix of chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, sugar and salt; it tends to be thinner in consistency and sweeter in taste. Vietnamese sriracha is thicker and hotter than the traditional Thai recipe, and may contain other ingredients, such as tomatoes. American sriracha sauces tend to be more similar to the Vietnamese version.
