About This Food

Description

Worcestershire sauce is a fermented liquid that is used to enhance flavor in meats, soups, and gravies. While it gets its name the region in England where it originates, it was actually inspired by Indian spices and has a pungent, sweet flavor.

The key ingredients of vinegar, molasses and spices are sources of vitamins packed with overall health enhancing properties. Vitamins B6, C and E from chili pepper extract boost the immune system and may help prevent heart disease. Since most worchestershire sauce is also made with anchovies, those with fish allergies should avoid it.
