If you've ever breathed on a cold window in winter, you've noticed water vapors fog up the glass. That's much the same way liquid smoke is made. Chilling the smoke from smoldering wood chips condenses it into water droplets that trap the smoke flavor. You can use liquid smoke to add rich, smoky flavor to meats without contributing additional calories or nutrients.

Liquid Smoke Nutrition

Natural smoke flavor, molasses and caramel color are the ingredients of one liquid smoke product. A teaspoon of liquid smoke typically contains no calories and virtually no fat, cholesterol, fiber, vitamins or minerals. Sodium content ranges from zero to 10 milligrams per serving. Some manufacturers may add additional ingredients, such as soy sauce, vinegar, high-fructose corn syrup and spices. Although these additions don't significantly affect calories, fat and other nutrients, the sodium content may increase.
