Stay Away From Heinz Ketchup Like It Is the Plague!

People’s awareness about the detrimental effects of processed foods is constantly increasing. People are beginning to understand that organic food is the healthier and better option. We usually choose to buy certain products like condiments such as ketchup, dressings, sauces and mustard. However, I recently did a research, and the information I came across shocked me.

The Ingredient Label of Heinz Ketchup
  1. Distilled Vinegar
  2. Tomato Concentrate
  3. Corn Syrup
  4. High Fructose Corn Syrup
  5. Natural Flavor, Onion Powder, Spice, Salt etc.

In case you didn’t know, corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup are exactly the same thing, and by labeling them as two different ingredients, they are making an attempt to trick customers.

To start with, they separate them in order to make you think that corn syrup is much healthier than high fructose syrup. Additionally, they put high fructose syrup at the bottom of the list since they want to make the consumers think that the quantity of it is small. If they write it as one ingredients the list would look like this:

  1. High Fructose Corn Syrup
  2. Tomato Concentrate
  3. Distilled Vinegar
  4. Spices, Salt etc.

If this happens, consumers will know what exactly this type of ketchup contains. Nevertheless, this is just the beginning. Distilled vinegar comes from genetically modified corn. Therefore, distilled vinegar, corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup are three ingredients which are corn based.

Moreover, the salt that they use is the kind of salt that leads to mineral imbalances, toxicity in the body and high blood pressure. If consumed on a regular basis, it can cause a number of health issues. You can also read “natural flavors” on the label, and this is absolutely ridiculous since it contains sugar and sodium and not protein or fiber.

  1. High Fructose Corn Syrup

There is an abundance of this ingredient in Heinz Ketchup. High fructose corn syrup is very toxic and unhealthy and once metabolized it acts as a sugar in the body. The thing that increases its toxicity is that it comes from genetically modified corn. It increases the blood sugar levels and with time it causes damage to the liver. Additionally, it can cause heart disease, obesity, diabetes, it can weaken the immune system and much more.

According to a FDA research, there are high levels of Mercury in high fructose syrup, and this metal is extremely toxic. Mercury has an effect on the nervous system and the brain and it can cause autism, and cause real harm to children. Avoiding Heinz Ketchup is highly recommended.

  1. Sugar and Distilled Vinegar

One of the other ingredients of Heinz Ketchup is distilled vinegar. Moreover, this ketchup also contains 4 grams of sugar for one serving. Additionally, distilled vinegar is made from corn which is genetically modified and grown with chemicals and toxic pesticides. There is also added sugar in this ketchup and it is listed as “natural flavors”. The most commonly used sugar is GMO beet sugar. It causes damage to your brain, nervous system, immune system, metabolism, liver and pancreas.

It has been shown that ingesting this amount of sugar sans any fiber increases the blood sugar levels and causes damage to the liver and the pancreas.

  1. Zero Nutritional Value

This ketchup does not contain any protein, fiber or nutrition. On the other hand, it is abundant in chemicals and genetically modified ingredients, sugar and toxic substances. Additionally, it possibly contains mercury which is highly toxic for the human body.

If you care for yourself and for your health you must avoid this ketchup at all cost.
