How many of us really know the method of labeling ingredients in food products? Not many. Well, we should know the fact that companies list the ingredients present according to the quantity added to the food, from the most present ingredient to the least present one.
This information is very significant because it gives you a possibility to control what you consume.
It has proven that Heinz ketchup is bad for your health and you should stay away from it. Here is why:
High Fructose Corn Syrup
One of the most present ingredients in Heinz ketchup is high fructose corn syrup, but this is not very evident because the company did not list the same ingredient once, but twice, under two different names: corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup.
When metabolized, high fructose corn syrup acts as sugar in the body and increases the blood sugar levels. As a result, in endangers the function and the work of the liver. Another disadvantage of this ingredient is the fact that it is derived from GMO products and leads to obesity, weight gain, diabetes, weakened immune system, as well as heart diseases.
Distilled Vinegar and Sugar
Besides the high presence of high fructose corn syrup, Heinz ketchup is also loaded with additional sugar – even four extra grams of sugar per tablespoon.
It also contains distilled vinegar, which is being added in the end, and which represent another GMO corn ingredient.
Hence, Heinz ketchup contains three GMO ingredients, chemicals, sugar, and almost no nutrients. Not only it does not seem healthy, but this ketchup also barely sounds like a food.
The list of ingredients does not end there. It also contains additives, onion powder, salt, no protein, no fiber, and it has no nutritional value.
This is why we suggest that you stay away from this product.
