Well, before we start with this article, I would like to ask you a simple question – if someone mentions ketchup, then you probably think of Heinz, right? And, to be honest with you – it’s easy to see why. But, did you know that more than 650 million bottles are sold every year in over 140 countries and 11 billion single-serve packets, per year? CBS Money Watch reports the brand is ‘America’s Favorite Ketchup,’ with over 50% of the condiment market share in the country. But, the experts highly recommend that you should stay away from this ketchup and in this article we’re going to show you 3 main reasons why!
You should know that an extensive research has found that Heinz ketchup is definitely not good for you. Here’s why:
- It Has No Nutritional Value.
Here’s what you need to know – many people could have been fooled about the nutritional value of Heinz ketchup, if the picture wasn’t from the Heinz Food Service official website. It’s time to face the facts: although the serving is very small, there are zero vitamins, calcium or iron in “America’s favorite ketchup”.
- Beware the High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Unfortunately, we all know the shocking fact that the American diet is hideously over-saturated with high fructose corn syrup. Doctors like MD Mark Hyman refer to it as something that will kill you. And where does high fructose corn syrup rank on Heinz ketchup’s list of ingredients – it’s pretty high, to be honest with you. You should also know that high fructose corn syrup has been linked to heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, liver failure and tooth decay. And that’s not only in people abuse it – that’s in those who use it moderately.
- Heinz Ketchup Contains Distilled Vinegar.
Can I ask you a simple question – did you know that Heinz Ketchup contains distilled vinegar? Of course! Distilled vinegar is incredibly useful for cleaning your bathroom, but it’s too acidic for the human body — it can also cause hardening of your joints. And yet it’s the second ingredient on the Heinz ketchup bottle.
Note: the real and ugly truth is that Heinz advertises their vinegar as “all natural” – but, the real truth is that it contains GMO corn. The company was named in a class action lawsuit for this false advertising. So, what happened? Well, the suitors claimed the company violated California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act by labelling products as all natural when really, they’re anything but. If a company is willing to lie about what goes into their products, are you really going to feel comfortable putting said products in your body? Share your thoughts in the comment section bellow. And don’t forget to share this article with your friends and family. Thank You and have a nice day!
