Hi everyone, I'm new here.  About a year and a half ago I moved to Santiago Chile from California and a few months in started making hot sauce.  I now have a company that is my only source of income.  I have noticed some of my sauce varieties particularly in smaller 90ml bottle have air bubbles until shaken, but when I shake them the quantity of sauce in the bottle looks much lower.  Any advice?

Seems to me like the sauce is fermenting in the bottles.

You may be over processing with the blender. Blending too long introduces more air. Try blending less or letting the sauce settle before bottling (you will need to reheat before bottling).

Is there a build up of pressure in the bottle? If so then its producing gas because its fermenting. If not I would guess that, as stated above, its being over blended and to let it sit to let the air escape but to reheat before bottling.

Never sacrifice flavor for heat.
