People all over the world just love using ketchup in their meals.
For instance, whenever you go to a fast food restaurant, you will see people putting Heinz ketchup on their pasta, pizza, scrambled eggs, fries, burger and chicken.
Unfortunately, very few people bother enough to check out the nutritional facts on its label before they put it on their favorite meals.
If you are one of those people, you may want to reconsider this bad 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
All of the above mentioned ingredients are far from natural. They are all processed, even the tomato concentrate from red ripe tomatoes is nothing but a fancy word for processed tomatoes. The worse part about these ingredients is that they all have lost their nutritional value and don’t add any nourishment to your body.
Moreover, Heinz ketchup contains corn syrup and salt which is the lowest grade available to save cost. But on the other hand, it increases the toxins in your organism and as a result can cause many health problems.
Here are three reasons why you should stop using Heinz tomato ketchup.
Tomato Ketchup Has High Fructose Corn Syrup
As we previously mentioned, Heinz ketchup contains fructose corn syrup which is extremely toxic because it is obtained from GMO corn. The ingestion of this ingredient will increase your blood sugar levels and as a result will harm your liver. Beside this, there are some other health concerns like obesity, diabetes and compromised immune system.
The Distilled Vinegar And Sugar
Just like corn syrup, distilled vinegar is also made from GMO corn and it has several pesticides and preservative chemicals that are extremely harmful for your overall health.
Zero Nutritional Value
Tomato ketchup contains zero fiber, minerals and proteins. However, we should mention that there is a 2% of vitamin A and C, which is very low.
