All Red Boat products are labeled with a best-by date on the label that is 36 months (three years) from the date of manufacture. After opening, we recommend using the contents within a year. For optimum freshness it is best to refrigerate the product after opening; however, if a bottle is accidentally left out overnight, the product will not be harmed in any way.
Red Boat products only contain fish and sea salt. Our production line and our products do not contain milk, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, or soy.
Red Boat Fish Sauce contains a high protein content which can undergo a natural process called “protein precipitation” when exposed to changes in temperature. These insoluble precipitated proteins may sometimes attract to form clouds of protein within the bottle. These clouds do not affect the safety or quality of the fish sauce; however, if you dissatisfied with this product, please send an email to email@example.com and we will replace or refund your purchase.
Unless otherwise specified, every Red Boat product is made of just two ingredients: fresh-caught wild black anchovies and sea salt.
Yes. Our sauces do not contain any wheat or wheat by-products and are produced in a gluten-free facility.
No. Red Boat never uses flavor enhancers like MSG, hydrolyzed wheat, or soybean proteins.
Yes. There is no mercury or lead in our products. The waters off Phu Quoc island are some of the purest ocean waters in the world. You can see the product test report here.
Degrees N is an industry standard used to measure the amount of nitrogen, a significant factor in determining the quality of fish sauce. A higher “degrees N” indicates a higher level of protein; more protein means more umami flavor. Red Boat Fish Sauce has double to triple the amount of protein compared to its competitors.
Natural sea salt may occasionally crystallize on the bottom of the bottles of Red Boat sauces. This is a natural process and does not affect the product quality in any way.
Inspect label carefully: If the product does not say “Made in Phu Quoc” or “Product of Vietnam,” it is likely not authentic. Many sub-premium brands are made or processed in Thailand or Hong Kong.
