In no time, this peculiar pink sauce became a sensation. Ever since, it’s been trending on TikTok under a viral hashtag, #Pinksauce.

This hashtag has already generated 72 million views and still counting.

What makes it different?

It seemingly looks like any other dipping sauce like Mayonnaise or Ketchup except it comes in a bright pink color.

Chef Pii describes its taste as ‘sweet, spicy and tangy’ and is fashioned to be savored with almost everything.

In one of her initial videos, Chef Pii eats her Pink sauce with cucumbers, chicken and Ramen. Check out the video below:

So, Chef Pii’s sauce makes quite a statement because of its bold color. It’s probably something that ignited people’s interest in the first place.

The sauce’s ingredients also are as unusual as its color. They range from flavors like Sunflower seed oil, honey, Dried spices, Sunflower seed oil, and Dragon fruit to garlic, vinegar, lemon juice and so on.

There are also some who don’t quite understand the hype around the sauce and note that the shade of pink seems to change with every bottle.

It’s primarily because of the misleading ingredients. Here’s what a Twitter user pointed out:

A TikTok user just wants Chef Pii to get a license in order to clear the air surrounding the infamous sauce:

I’m genuinely rooting for her to obtain a license, fix the labels, correct any errors and then sell out – legally.

Update 1 (July 28)

11:25 AM (IST): Controversial Pink sauce has now spawned severe backlash from many for its inconsistent color, safety standards and lack of refrigeration during the delivery-transit process.

People have criticized Chef Pii for misleading people for misspelled ingredients, food safety protocols and even questioned the authenticity of her recipe. A person even claimed that when they received the product it smelled “rotten”.

Some people also called out Chef Pii for not disclosing the actual ingredients and taste. Since, the product has honey and garlic in it, it is bound to go rancid over time, thus causing botulism.

Botulism is a rare but fatal medical condition caused by toxins produced by a bacteria. It can also lead to paralysis and improper movement of facial muscles.

So, following are the reports from some of the users:

People are buying unrefrigerated “pink sauce” with no preservatives from a stranger on TikTok and are shocked when they get sick? 🤔

I love the #pinksauce saga. Americans buying goo from a lady who mixes it at home, in Florida, in the middle of summer, with zero quality control, that has milk, vinegar and who know what else. Shipped in a plastic bag in regular mail. But won’t get vaccinated…

After the prolonged criticism regarding FDA approval, Chef Pii decided to broke the silence and clear the air surrounding the mysteriousness of Pink sauce.

She said, “We are following FDA standards, however. We are currently in lab testing. I’m a passionate person, but I’m listening to y’all.”
