Yellowbird Foods: Organic Condiments
Yellowbird is not your typical watered–down hot sauce. Our spicy condiments are flavor–forward with a thicker, smoother consistency packed with real, farm–fresh fruits and vegetables. We have zero tolerance for fake filler ingredients. When it comes to eating healthy and delicious meals, it’s all about the sauce!
Sauce responsibly. Always use a condiment.

Support for farmers
It all started with a seed — a seed of thought asking “what if we went back to the basics, back to our true source of nourishment, back to nature? What if we refused all the junk that we’ve gotten far too used to seeing in our foods and what if, by doing that, we happened to create the most delicious sauce in the world!?”
Our commitment to sourcing 100% Organic and Direct Trade means we’re able to support farms and farmers that are focused on growing real food the right way. Supporting the Bird means supporting real food and meaningful work to create a more sustainable world for everyone.
|"I’m all about the sauce. The perfect condiment can take any and every food to the highest level of delicious, but not all condiments are crafted with health benefits in mind. We created Yellowbird for those who like spicy, love delicious, and demand healthier products. The endorphin rush is also a huge bonus… but don’t take my word for it!"
Erin Link, Yellowbird Foods, Co–Founder + CBO
|"Hot sauce is my favorite food group! But it’s not the only thing that matters to us. We’ve built a platform to create big, lasting change in the packaged food industry. Customers deserve real, honest products made with real, honest ingredients. Our Yellowbird has become a powerhouse for raising the standards of food for everyone."
George Milton, Yellowbird Foods, Co–Founder + CEO
Answer: The Yellowbird is a small, plump bird that lives among the spicy chili plants and snacks on tiny bird peppers in–between daily adventures. While it’s true that all birds have a palate for juicy, ripe, extra spicy peppers because birds lack the receptors that are sensitive to capsaicin (the active component of chili peppers that causes the burning sensation), our Yellowbird is different. Yellowbird is a saucy, clever explorer who is always hungry and on the hunt for nature’s fiery little treat… just like us.
Where is Yellowbird Foods headquartered?
Answer: Yellowbird Foods is located in South Austin.
In the story about the Bird, why do you use the word reign and not rein?
Answer: Because no other animals can handle the heat, the Yellowbird is freely ruling over the vast fields of hot peppers.
Where can I buy Yellowbird products?
Answer: You can find Yellowbird products at natural food retailers across the US. To locate the Bird in your area, check out our store locator.

Can I tour your facility?
Answer: For food safety purposes, our facility is currently not open for touring. This is something we hope to make possible in the near future.
How much sugar do you add to your sauces?
Answer: We use only trace amounts of organic cane sugar in every bottle of Yellowbird Sauce. By FDA standards, the trace amount of sugar we use is so small that it does not register as a per–serving quantity on our nutrition facts. Thus the amount of sugar is 0 grams per serving.
Are your condiments gluten-free?
Answer: All of our condiments are gluten–free.
Do you use high fructose corn syrup?
Answer: Never! Our products are sweetened naturally with fresh fruits and only trace amounts of organic cane sugar.
What kind of vinegar do you use?
Answer: We use only white vinegar that is derived from organically grown, Non–GMO corn.
Do your condiments contain pepper seeds?
Answer: All Yellowbird Condiments are made with whole pepper fruits—seeds and all! We don’t waste anything in the making of our spicy condiments. However, our final products are cooked and blended so well, that whole pepper seeds are no longer visibly present, but rather blended into our final, deliciously smooth, spicy condiment.
What are the Scoville Heat Units (SHU) for each of your sauces?
Answer: Aligning with the heat level of our sauce lineup, our Scoville measurements* for each sauce are: Blue Agave Sriracha: 1,325–2,650 Serrano: 1,600–6,160 Jalapeño: 1,152–2,304 Habanero: 15,580–54,530 Ghost: 23,435 *Note: Because we use real peppers that are naturally diverse in heat, these numbers can vary slightly per batch. Also, as with any taste preference, the Scoville rating is a subjective measurement.
How often do you come out with new flavors?
Answer: We release new or seasonal products once a year. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn or sign up for our newsletter to get the inside scoop on new or limited–time products, events, giveaways and more!
Do I have to refrigerate my Yellowbird condiments after opening?
Answer: All of our deliciously spicy condiments are made to last one year unrefrigerated from the day we bottle them. By using whole food ingredients that have naturally occurring preservative traits, such as citrus and organic vinegar, we’re able to preserve great taste without adding unwanted chemicals or fillers. Please refer to the expiration date on your bottle for remaining shelf life.
How long can I enjoy my Yellowbird condiments?
Answer: Our spicy condiments are made to last one year after we bottle them. Be sure to check the expiration date printed on the side of the bottle for remaining shelf life.
Are your condiments organic?
Answer: All of our products are Non–GMO. We focus on using the highest quality ingredients to make the best tasting pepper condiments. Sometimes this means using organic ingredients, such as organic carrots or cucumbers from Agua Dulce or Johnson’s Backyard Garden. Other times, such as with chili peppers, we buy organic when it’s available. But we always source the best–tasting, Non–GMO ingredients we can find. Together we can raise the standards of packaged foods by supporting farmers that focus on farming methods that regenerate our planet.
Why is one bottle of sauce spicier than another of the same flavor?
Answer: Yellowbird products do not contain any artificial preservatives, powders, extracts, or fillers of any kind. And so the ingredients of our products are at the mercy of nature. For example, one crop of Habanero peppers may have gotten more sun and rain than another, thus causing that crop to have a slightly different taste, color, and heat level. Please contact us if you have more questions about this.

About Us :
Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets. Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.
100% of Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard.
Each certification program has a different set of standards. Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products. Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.
Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues. All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program.
The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation. Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.
The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
