How Many Calories In BBQ Sauce?

BBQ Sauce is a popular condiment that can be used on just about any variety of meat, salad or main entree.  BBQ sauce is typically high in calories because of the amount of sugar found in the sauce.

The calories found in BBQ Sauce greatly varies depending on the portion size and type of sauce used.  There are a number of varieties that are full of sugar and ingredients that impact the calorie content. In the standard BBQ sauce there are 50 calories per one ounce serving size.

If you are trying to cut back on your calorie intake, it is important to eliminate a lot of condiments and hidden sugars. BBQ sauce is typically high in sugar and can literally ruin a piece of meat by increasing the calories.  A grilled piece of chicken may be the perfect protein source for losing weight, but when smothered in BBQ sauce can be a terrible diet food.

When eating out at a restaurant, ask for your condiments on the side. If you order a piece of grilled meat, ask for the BBQ sauce on the side so that you can control how much is being used.  Keep your portions low and you will reduce the calories consumed in one meal.
