We consume the ketchup to accompany our chips without really knowing what it contains. Heinz brand Ketchup, although popular, is harmful to health. Here’s why you should definitely stop eating it.
Well, we can guarantee you; Heinz Ketchup is definitely the best ketchup on the market. But if the Israelis banned the brand the right to call their product “ketchup” is not for nothing. It means that there is something fishy!
In recent decades, the organic food is becoming popular. People are getting increasingly aware of the damage that may be caused by some industrial and processed products on their health and prefer to turn to organic products. Heinz Ketchup is one of those foods that people banish in their refrigerators. Here’s why:
1 – It contains very few nutrients
See that pretty red dress, you’d think that they made it to almost 99% of freshly picked tomatoes. Well think again. Heinz Ketchup contains only a paltry amount of tomatoes which is also why the Israelis have banned its name “ketchup”. It is essentially made from sugar, thickeners, chemicals and GMOs.
It contains therefore neither fiber nor protein or nutrients, unlike what the ads suggest. Indeed, this ketchup contains only a very low dose of lycopene, a natural pigment belonging to the carotenoid family and is responsible for the red color of the ketchup. So, it would only contain very few nutrients or not at all.
2 – It contains mercury
This ketchup also contains genetically modified maize syrup in quantity, which itself is composed of a large dose of mercury-containing fructose (toxic heavy metal). Medical studies show that too frequent consumption of genetically modified corn syrup is very dangerous for health. The latter would be responsible for many diseases, including heart disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, and many others.
3 – It contains too much sugar
Here’s another reason why this ketchup is very harmful. It contains sugar in large quantity. Even if you do feel it only just slightly, analyzes of the product reveal anything else. One tablespoon of ketchup contains 5 grams of sugar. That is what fattens you and poisons you.
4 – It contains distilled vinegar
And that’s not all, it also contains distilled vinegar, itself derived from genetically modified maize. The latter is grown with chemicals and pesticides. Sugar, combined with distilled vinegar, increases the sugar level in the blood and can cause pancreatic and liver problems. A real poison!
In sum, this product is very bad for your health. It is imperative to banish it in your fridge even if it may offend children. We need to protect our health! Why not opt for natural products? There is nothing better than making homemade ketchup.
