Red Gold’s New BBQ Sauce Offers Superior Ingredients and Flavor for Foodservice Operators

June 5, 2024

(Elwood, IN) – While the first ingredient in most BBQ sauces is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), the first ingredient in Red Gold’s new BBQ Sauce is tomato puree. The list of superior ingredients in the new BBQ Sauce makes all others pale in comparison for finger-licking goodness. 

“We know operators have plenty of choices when they look for a BBQ sauce for their menu, so we knew we needed a formula that stood out from the rest in flavor and quality,” says David Halt, Red Gold’s Senior Director of Business Development. “The first thing you will notice when you taste it is that it is delicious. When you look at the ingredient statement, you will know that you need to make the switch to Red Gold®.”

The new BBQ sauce uses real sugar instead of HFCS and has no artificial caramel color. With 80% less sodium than the leading foodservice brand, its list of superior ingredients includes Worcestershire sauce, molasses, garlic, chili powder, and tamarind. Its sweet and tangy flavor makes the new BBQ sauce flavor the ideal condiment for multiple menu applications.

Now available in one-gallon plastic jugs, it is perfect for back-of-house use, along with our 1.5- gallon dispenser pouches. The BBQ Sauce is also available in 1 oz. Dunk Cups for takeout, drive through and catering applications.  Operators are encouraged to taste Red Gold’s new BBQ Sauce for themselves absolutely free by requesting a sample at
