WARNING: Avoid Heinz Ketchup Like The Plague, Here’s 3 Research Backed Reasons Why

“Heinz Ketchup has recently been banned in Israel from calling its product ketchup as it doesn’t include enough tomatoes. But there are more reasons why you should be cautious about this product.”

In this day and age, more people are aware of the dangers of consuming processed foods that are filled with toxins and chemicals. People should instead be consuming fresh and organic foods that are natural.

You may think of small things such as sauces and dressings as being harmless, but there are actually some very concerning things you need to know about these products, Heinz ketchup in particular. It seems that your consumption of ketchup can really cause damage to your health.

All packaged foods show their ingredients and how much of each one makes up the finished product. Most of ketchup is made up of red ripe tomato concentrate, along with distilled vinegar, onion powder, high fructose corn syrup etc.

Here are the ingredients of Heinz ketchup, the most popular brand of ketchup,

  • Tomato Concentrate
  • Distilled Vinegar
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Corn Syrup
  • Onion Powder, Salt, Spice, Natural Flavor etc.

At first glance, you mightn’t have noticed that the same ingredient was listed twice by the manufacturer, but they have just been labelled differently. It is not an oversight on their part.

High fructose corn syrup and corn syrup is the same thing. They are simply there to make it appear as if ketchup has more ingredients than it actually does.

They divide the figure in half to make you think that the corn syrup is healthier than the high fructose version.

While they want you to think that there’s a difference, there actually is none. The higher on the list the ingredient is, the more of which there is in the product. If you took the corn syrup out of the list, you would have:

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Tomato Concentrate
  • Distilled Vinegar
  • Salt, Spices etc.

Instead of ketchup, people are purchasing GMO corn syrup. This means that the manufacturer is trying to fool its customer base. This is where it starts.

The second ingredient, vinegar is also produced from corn that was genetically modified. That’s three corn sourced materials in the ketchup!

The other ingredients aren’t great either. Salt is cheap and is related with many health problems, such as high blood pressure.

The ‘natural flavors’ is unknown and could be any combination of harmful ingredients. They most certainly include salt and sugar, leading to dangerous levels of salt and sugar being consumed, not taking into account the food that you are putting the ketchup on in the first place.

Here are the 3 key reasons why you should be avoiding ketchup.

  1. High Fructose Corn Syrup

All Heinz ketchup is filled with high fructose corn syrup, which has been proven to be extremely unhealthy, originates form GMO corn and acts in a manner very close to sugar, but with even worse consequences.

It leads to a rise in your blood sugar levels and will cause serious damage to the liver. Your immune systems will be affected and the risk of heart disease and obesity are greatly increased.

A FDA researcher asked for a barrel of high fructose corn syrup so that it could be tested, but was rejected many times. He eventually managed to get a barrel from another source. The research showed that there were huge levels of mercury contained in it, which can be very toxic and harmful. You should avoid high fructose corn syrup like the plague, as it will cause you nothing but trouble in both the short and long term.

  1. Distilled Vinegar Plus Sugar

The next ingredient on the list I distilled vinegar accompanied by four grams of sugar in each serving.

The vinegar is also sourced form GMO products, meaning that many toxic chemicals have been involved in the production process. The sugar in the product will cause all sorts of blood sugar fluctuations and cause damage to your organs.

If you get lucky and your organs are not too badly affected by the high fructose corn syrup, at least you will have a load of added sugar to finish the job for you!

  1. Little Nutritional Value

There is no fiber or protein contained in Heinz ketchup. Any trace amounts that are to be found will not be absorbed efficiently by the body and will go to waste. This means that ketchup is really just a combination of mercury, sugar, chemicals and GMO food.

Hopefully this article has opened up your eyes to the harmful effects ketchups like Heinz generate for you and your family.
