Most people are not aware of the method of labeling ingredients in food products. Namely, companies list the ingredients according to the amounts added to the food, from the most to the least. This is important as it gives you an opportunity to control what you consume. When it comes to Heinz ketchup, we strongly advise you to stay away from it, and we give the most important reasons:
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Heinz ketchup is loaded with high fructose corn syrup, and this would have been evident if the company did not list the same ingredients twice under a different name, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup.
This ingredient acts as sugar in the body when metabolized, and raises the blood sugar levels, and endangers the functioning of the liver. It is derived from GMO and causes obesity, weight gain, heart diseases, diabetes, and weakened immune system.
Distilled Vinegar and Sugar
Despite the high fructose corn syrup, they have also added additional sugar- even 4 extra grams of sugar per tablespoon!
In the end, they add distilled vinegar, which is another GMO corn ingredient.
Therefore, this product contains three GMO ingredients, sugar, chemicals, and actually no place for any nutrients! Does this sound healthy, does it actually sound like a food?
The list of ingredients continues with additives, salt, onion powder, no fiber, no protein, and no nutritional value.
Therefore, we advise you to never consume this ketchup again!
