Hot sauces

This is a list of commercial hot sauces. Variations on a company's base product are not necessarily common, and are not always included.

Scoville heat ratings vary depending on batch. However, many companies do not disclose numeric ratings for their products at all. "Extra hot" versions may be advertised as several times hotter than the original, without specifying the heat of the original.
