We all love ketchup! We put it in the sandwich, on our pizza, pasta, eggs, fries.. it’s all over our meals! And it really enriches the flavor!

Yet, you might want to read a few facts about Heinz Ketchup before you buy it again, or squeeze it onto your food. They will make it completely disgusting!

First of all, if we review its ingredients, the list is as it follows:

  1. Tomato concentrate from red ripe tomatoes
  2. Distilled vinegar
  3. High fructose corn syrup
  4. Corn syrup
  5. Salt
  6. Spices
  7. Onion Powder
  8. Natural flavoring

Also, do not forget to consider the fact that these are listed in order of most to least, meaning that the least there is in the ketchup is natural flavoring, while it contains the most ‘tomato concentrate from red ripe tomatoes.’  .

Yet, we must admit that the manufacturer has attempted to make it sound really healthy and they count on the assumption that many customers may fall on the tricks.

However, the fact is that the ketchup is based on processed tomatoes which lack their nutritional value. Additionally, do not let to be misguided: even though they have labeled it as ‘corn syrup’, it is the same “old”, harmful ‘high fructose corn syrup.’

Yet, nowadays people are becoming growingly aware of the importance of healthy foods, and the meaning of the order on product labels. Therefore, the company has divided the same ingredient under two names. If we skip that one too, we get the following list:

  1. High fructose corn syrup
  2. Tomato concentrate from red ripe tomatoes
  3. Distilled vinegar
  4. Salt
  5. Spices
  6. Onion Powder
  7. Natural flavoring

Undoubtedly, no one would choose to buy a product which is mostly corn syrup, knowing is dangerous consequences!

Furthermore, the salt used is the cheapest one, whose regular consumption leads to mineral imbalances, high blood pressure, and toxicity in the blood.

Only one tablespoon of Heinz ketchup provides a high amount of sodium and 7% of your sugar intake! That’s disastrous! Also.. no one can tell what does ‘Natural flavoring’ mean!

3 Scientific Reasons to never use Heinz ketchup again

  1. It has no Nutritional Value

Literally, this product contains no nutrients, no vitamins, no minerals, fiber, nor proteins. Except for 2% of Vitamin A and C!

  1. The High Fructose Corn Syrup

Sadly, this ketchup is mainly based on high fructose corn syrup, which is an extremely dangerous and toxic ingredient, derived from genetically modified corn.

Its consumption causes liver damage, increases blood sugar levels, causes diabetes, weak immune system, heart diseases, and obesity!

Also, you should know the following: producers refused to provide the sample an FDA researcher demanded in order to investigate it, so she contacted a new beverage company for the barrel.

When she tested it, she found that it is extremely high in mercury, which is an awfully dangerous heavy metal which is particularly harmful to children, and affects the nervous system, the brain, and may cause autism.

Therefore, do you think it is a good idea to allow your child to consume this ketchup?

  1. Distilled Vinegar and Sugar

Distilled vinegar is a GMO corn product, loaded with dangerous chemicals and pesticides, which leads to severe health issues.

Hence, we strongly advise you to stop consuming Heinz ketchup right now! Instead, you can replace it with some other, healthier, GMO-free options, and prevent the severe side effects of its use.
