  • I don't think it's necessary. Vinegar and capsicum would make it inhospitable for microbes. And consumers don't want products with preservatives anyway. – aris May 27 at 4:54

    @aris vinegar is a good preservative, but also an assumption on your part, i.e. it's common in hot sauce but not universal, and the proportion isn't always enough. Capsicum on the other hand has no preservative value – Chris H May 27 at 6:33
