Celebrate Father’s Day with BBQ…Sauce!

Don’t know what to give a dad who has everything? Fathers Day is around the corner, and what better way to celebrate all the fathers out there than to talk about grilling! There’s something special about the bond between a father and their grill, and one thing fathers love to use is BBQ sauce. It goes on everything, steak, burgers, wings, ribs and more! It’s the little things that can make a big difference, so we want to help you choose the right BBQ sauce to serve your family this summer season! 

Maybe you didn't know, but traditional BBQ often contains a high sugar content. It’s important to know the difference so that you can make that shift toward a healthier alternative. So, let's compare some popular BBQ sauce brands and see how they measure up. The goal is not to stop using BBQ sauce, but to select the right one and be mindful of what you’re consuming. 

Diana Sauce: If you look at the label, this sauce contains 96% sugar per serving size. Picture yourself cooking a nice steak on the BBQ, and you’re only using a little bit of Diana sauce. Can't be that bad can it? Well, one serving size has a whopping 4 tsp of sugar. 

Bullseye BBQ Sauce: When you examine the ingredients and the percentage of sugar in a single serving, it's a clear winner: 100% sugar per serving size. Believe me, it's right there on the label, no fabrication. So, if you use one serving size of Bullseye BBQ sauce, you're adding a whopping 4 ½ teaspoons of sugar to your steak.

At Simply for Life, we value integrity and the importance of good ingredients in our products. We want to provide products that will support your healthy lifestyle and satisfy your taste buds. Let's get to it!

Crazy BBQ Hot Sauce: We’re starting this off with a bang because this BBQ sauce has NO added sugar. So how many teaspoons of sugar are you adding to your steak? Zero, nothing! 

Busters Rhino: This sauce does contain some sugar, but a full serving size has only ⅓ teaspoons. That's a significant contrast compared to the high sugar content of the previously mentioned brands. Instead of 4 or 4 ½ teaspoons, it's just ⅓ teaspoon per serving size. That's a remarkable difference, and I'm all for it! Additionally, this sauce is packed with antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation, benefit cardiovascular and diabetes sufferers, and boost your metabolic rate.

The Primal Kitchen: If you're ready to go all out with a BBQ that contains sugar, we've got you covered here at Simply for Life. This BBQ sauce is an excellent choice with exceptional ingredients and a fantastic flavor. In terms of sugar content, it only has ½ teaspoon per serving size, a significant contrast to the 4 or 4 ½ teaspoons found in other sauces.

You have the power to make choices that benefit your health. You can enjoy delicious food made with quality ingredients. We believe in celebrating life through the food we share and inspiring people to make healthier choices while still savoring their meals.
