Why Does Hot Sauce Change Color? PDF Print E-mail

Q: Hi Dave,

I was wondering why hot sauces change color (red to brownish) after long periods of time.  Does this affect the sauce in any way (potency, taste, etc)?




A: Hello Paul:

The color change is the result of oxidation, and it can affect the flavor of the sauce but not the potency.
