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.
All our spicy condiments are made in our own facility just south of Austin in San Marcos, Texas.
Because no other animals can handle the heat, the Yellowbird is freely ruling over the vast fields of hot peppers. To read more about the Yellowbirds’ Kingdom of Peppers, check out the story about the Bird.

We are proud to source delicious, organic ingredients for our sauces!
Our Original Line of sauces use about 50% organic ingredients, denoted in each ingredient list.
Three of our new Organic Line flavors – Serrano, Habanero, and Sriracha – use 100% certified organic ingredients. In our Made with Organic Ghost Pepper condiment, every ingredient is organic except the ghost peppers.
Why is it 0g of sugar per serving on most bottles? 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 and therefore, the amount of sugar is 0 grams per serving.
All of our condiments are gluten–free.
Since we use fresh, whole peppers in our bottles and our sauces do not contain artificial preservatives, extracts, or fillers of any kind, the heat can be slightly different with each batch.
We rank our sauces in heat level as follows:
Mild to Medium Heat
Blue Agave Sriracha
Aligning with the heat level of our sauce lineup, our Scoville measurements* for each sauce are:
Blue Agave Sriracha: 1,325–2,650
*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.
Original Line: all of our original flavors of 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. Please refer to the expiration date on your bottle for remaining shelf life.
Organic Line: our organic line of sauces do need to be refrigerated after opening! Please refer to the expiration date on your bottle for remaining shelf life.
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.
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.
