Low Sugar Keto Thai Sweet Chili Sauce

Thai Sweet Chili sauce is the main flavor component for this recipe.

As you search for Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, try to find one that has little sugar in it. Most sweet chili sauces will have some sugar in them.

Here are a few of my recommendations based on your personal preference:

If you happen to find a sauce that’s even better, make sure you share in the comments below!

The amount you’re using in this recipe is very little, and as long as you don’t eat the ENTIRE meal by yourself in one sitting, you should be fine with just a bit of sweet chili sauce. Plus, it really makes this dish super flavorful!

Be warned – you *may* become slightly addicted to the sauce as community member, Casey F., recently found out.

Shhh. Don’t let the cat out of the bag, but a little birdie told me that Casey likes to use this Bang Bang sauce (or maybe it’s the Thai Sweet Chili Sauce or maybe both!!) on his other meals, too!

By the way, thank you Casey for providing this yummy picture below.

Casey took the liberty of adding simple roasted cabbage steaks, using a brush of olive oil and salt and pepper, to his meal to give him and his family a bit more greens! You can also serve these kebabs with spicy lime cauliflower steaks as well.

    • Hi Janie! Many of the sauces out there are fairly high in sugar. You’re not using a lot in the recipe for four servings, so it won’t be as high at the label indicates (if you only have one serving).

      This sauce by Asian Organics is probably one of the lower sugar sauces I’m able to find. You can find it on Amazon easily. Click here to get to the product page.

      If you’re OK with artificial sweeteners, you can try the sugar free sauce from G Hughes – it says wing sauce, but you can use it for all types of things. Click here for the product page.

      I’ll update the post to include these two recommendations.
