lmao jesus, Sugar/glucose-fructose outweighs WATER in the recipe (ingredients are always listed in order of mass)

salt actually isn't bad for you, it's only bad if u don't balance it out with potassium

Sugar on the other hand is awful and its just empty calories. So you'll age quicker which brings on disease and terrible quality of life. Food corporations really don't care, they just want to force feed us this junk and profit Confused Face

A "szechwan" sauce from a brand named "Richardson".

No way this can be good.

Says on label Richardson Foods a division of Heinz Canada.
Kraft merged with Heinz to become Kraft Heinz.
Should expect similar quality/production as any Kraft/Heinz product.

My problem has more to do with "Szechwan" sauce.

What even is Szechwan flavor? That's a place, not a flavor, and the popular flavor of the cuisine from that place definitely don't revolve around the ingredients in this bottle.

This is probably the same as the big jugs you see in restaurants.

When you go restaurant, you not know what brand you eat.

This logic applies to every other sauce, food, drink.
What is french dressing, italian dressing, italian wedding soup, sweet chili thai, texas bbq, Memphis bbq, champagne vs sparkling wine if it's made by the same grapes and only a regional differences?

If we check the well known McDonald Szechwan sauce.
Water, sugar, Vinegar, Wheat, soybean, corn starch, salt, corn vinegar*, apple cider vinegar*, ginger, soybean oil*, sesame seed oil, xanthan gum***, preservatives (Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate), Spices, Yeast Extract**, Garlic, Wheat Starch*, Citric Acid**, Safflower oil*, Dextrose*.
Bolded are similar ingredients.
Bolded* are alternatives to existing ingredients that likely balance the flavor.
Bolded** This may exist in the brand of soy sauce.
Bolded*** Generally Flavorless, used as thickener and stabilizer
You're really only left with the ginger difference compared to the jug.

Lets try a random one on Amazon (Took one with an ingredient list)
https://www.amazon.com/House-Tsang-Szec ... B0000TZHZ4

Without breaking it down, similar ingredients with exception to sherry wine, ginger puree, dehydrated onion, natural flavoring. The rest are similar or alternatives things.

There is a common flavor that may or may not have become westernized giving these things their name. It doesn't mean it needs to derive from the popular flavor of the place.
French Fries aren't necessary French(Disputes it derives from Belgian) and what is French in terms of taste?
French Dressing, not France but American as well.
Egg rolls also American from chinese restaurants.
Fajita comes from Texas originating from mexican farm workers.
Sauerkraut dates back not from Germany but China.

We all know what is Ranch Dressing more or less, but lets say we never tried it. You could claim the same thing.
`What even is Ranch flavor? That's a place(like a farm), not a flavor, and the popular flavor of the cuisine from that place definitely don't revolve around the ingredients in this bottle.`
But in this case it originates from an actual Ranch in California called Hidden Valley Ranch.
But many don't know it as Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing.

This is similar to teriyaki sauce. It's a little lighter and sweeter tasting. Has a little spicy kick to it. It's a pretty good deal considering sauces in that size bottles are usually over $20.
