Ingredients & Storage

What is the shelf life of Frank's RedHot® hot sauce? 

Quality, freshness and flavor are top priorities at Frank's RedHot®. The date stamped on shoulder or the bottom of the bottle is the date we recommend that you use the product by to assure the product's optimum flavor, freshness and consistent quality. The product will generally maintain good flavor quality for a few weeks after that date if refrigerated. Refrigeration will help maintain its flavor; however, it is not necessary if you prefer your Frank's RedHot® to be room temperature.  The recommended shelf life from the date of manufacture if unopened is 24 months.


Do Frank's RedHot sauces have to be refrigerated?

We recommend that Frank's RedHot Sweet Chili® and Frank’s RedHot® Slammin’ Sriracha® Chili Sauce be refrigerated after opening; All other sauces do not have to be, but, doing so will keep the product fresher for a longer period of time.

How can I make sure the wings I serve have the authentic flavor of Buffalo?

Frank's RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce was the secret ingredient in the first ever Buffalo Wings recipe. To give your wings authentic Buffalo flavor, use 3 parts Frank's RedHot® Original and 2 parts melted butter. Toss your wings in this mixture and serve.


Is the Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce more or less hot than the Frank's RedHot XTRA Hot?

The heat level of Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce is between the Frank's RedHot® Original Hot Sauce and the XTRA Hot Sauce.


How can I create a milder Frank's RedHot sauce?

For a milder wing sauce recipe, vary the ratio of Frank's RedHot® to butter. For example, in our standard traditional Buffalo Wings recipe using 2 1/2 lbs. chicken wings use: 3 parts butter, 2 parts RedHot® (1/2 cup butter: 1/3 cup RedHot).


How can I make a spicier wing?

Substitute Frank's RedHot® XTRA Hot for Frank's RedHot® Original. You'll get four times the heat and all the flavor!
