If there is one product that people love using in their meals, its ketchup!
When you go to a fast food restaurant you see people putting Heinz ketchup on their fries, burger, pizza, chicken, scrambled eggs and pasta.
However, not many people bother to check out the nutritional facts on its label before using it.
If I am talking about you, you may want to reconsider this habit.
First of all here is the list of ingredients on your typical Heinz tomato ketchup
- Corn syrup
- Natural flavoring
- Distilled vinegar
- Onion Powder
- High fructose corn syrup
- Tomato concentrate obtained from red ripe tomatoes
The truth is these ingredients are not natural but processed, even the tomato concentrate from red ripe tomatoes is just a fancy terminology for processed tomatoes. These ingredients have lost their nutritional value and in effect do not add any nourishment to your body.
Heinz also makes use of corn syrup and salt which is the lowest grade available to save cost, however this salt increases the toxins in your body and generally make you unwell.
Here are three reasons why you should stop using Heinz tomato ketchup.
- Tomato Ketchup Has High Fructose Corn Syrup
The fructose corn syrup in Heinz tomato ketchup is extremely toxic. This ingredient is obtained from GMO corn and the syrup will increase your blood sugar levels which will be harmful to your liver in time. Other health concerns include a compromised immune system, diabetes and obesity.
- The Distilled Vinegar And Sugar
What you should know is that distilled vinegar is very bad for your health. It is made from GMO corn and this has several pesticides and preservative chemicals that are harmful to your health.
- Zero Nutritional Value
There is zero protein, fiber and minerals in the tomato ketchup. However you might be interested to know that there is a 2% Vitamin A and C, this is low to say the least.
