Dipping Sauces of the World

Dipping Sauces of the World

Here at WN Foods, we believe that life is more beautiful with dipping sauces. Plain old chips or bland fries can be completely transformed with the right one. That must be why so many cultures around the world have their own. Let’s take a look at a few of the world’s dipping sauces!

Ponzu Sauce

This Japanese sauce is simple, but extremely flavorful and versatile. Soy sauce and lemon juice aren’t a combination we’re used to in the US, but believe us when we say that it’s amazing, and pairs well with everything from gyoza to shabu shabu.

Curry Ketchup

Curry ketchup is a spiced ketchup popular all around Europe, but especially Germany. It’s typically served with fries or meat, and is a hit because of its complex but approachable flavor. If you’re bored of plain old ketchup, definitely give this one a try!

Lingonberry Sauce

You may know this sauce from a certain Swedish furniture chain. Lingonberry sauce is a tart dipping sauce from Sweden, often paired with meatballs. We know it sounds like an unusual flavor combination, but it’s really delicious!

Tahini

This dipping sauce is popular worldwide, from the Mediterranean to the Middle East. It’s made of ground sesame seeds and is served with anything from falafel to raw vegetable slices. What would you eat tahini sauce with?

Sweet & Sour Sauce

Sweet & sour sauce is an iconic Chinese condiment, usually used with chicken or as a dipping sauce for egg rolls. We can’t get enough of the rich, tangy flavor. That’s why we started selling our sweet & sour sauce in bottles in our online store!

Have you tried any of these dipping sauce before? Which one would you like to try first?

Cooking

Our sauce recipes are either from our clients or developed by our lab. Once we have a perfect recipe, our cooking department whips up the sauces with the finest ingredients and care, always following top safety standards. The cooking time varies depending on the sauce, but as soon as they’re ready, it’s time for the next step: quality assurance!

Quality Assurance

DSCF0311.jpg

Samples from each batch of sauce are taken and meticulously analyzed in our quality assurance lab to ensure they’re both safe and exactly as the client asked. They’re tested on things like pH, salt, Brix, water activity, viscosity, and others. If all the requirements are met, then it’s time for packing.

Packing

The packing process at WN Foods is completely automated with cutting-edge technology so that our products will always be consistently packed and sealed. We pack sauces in bottles and portion packs (the packets you’re probably familiar with, like our Double Hi Soy Sauce packets). Our packing department also takes samples of each case to make sure that there are no defects. We want only the most flawless sauces for our customers!

Taste testing sriracha hybrids

wn gyoza 2.JPG

In our sriracha sauce article, we mentioned that Wing Nien is hard at work developing some delicious sriracha sauce hybrids. Today we are taste testing the latest formulas: sriracha BBQ sauce, sriracha stir fry sauce, and sriracha sweet & sour sauce!

To start, we cooked some crispy chicken and vegetable gyoza. Yum!

Now onto the taste testing!

Sriracha BBQ Sauce: This sauce has the thick texture and smoky sweetness one would expect from BBQ sauce, but the powerful hot chili flavor of sriracha is equally prominent. These two flavors create a wonderful contrast on the tongue, leaving you wanting more!

Sriracha Stir Fry Sauce: This sauce takes stir fry to the next level. It maintains the complex savory taste of traditional stir fry sauce, but also kicks it up a notch with the distinct chili heat of sriracha sauce. The chicken and vegetable gyoza were a match made in heaven with this sauce!

Sriracha Sweet & Sour Sauce: The sweet & sour sauce we all know and love has been boosted with another layer of delectable flavor thanks to sriracha. Next time you’re craving sweet & sour chicken, we recommend giving this sauce a try. Your tastebuds will thank you!
