Israel bans Heinz Ketchup because it’s linked to liver, pancreas, immune system, and brain issues

Recommended Posts

The food industry only allows it to be sold as “tomato seasoning”, not “tomato ketchup”. Triggered by a series of tests conducted by an Israeli food company also selling ketchup. The tests revealed that, although Heinz boasts over 60% tomato as an ingredient, there was only 21% tomato concentrate in each bottle.

The Heinz parent company, Diplomat, tried to argue that their proportions of tomato concentrate were acceptable according to American and European ketchup standards. At that point, the Israeli health ministry got involved and insisted that Heinz must change their labels from “ketchup” to “tomato seasoning” if they want to continue selling their popular product in the country.

Leave a bit of Heinz's on a plate till dry and it hardens to a point only a good scraping or a long soak cleans it...

 

Now one can imagine what it does to one's body...Gross.

I love it. To me it is a little sweeter than regular store bought but when done right it's the same consistency but a little sweeter flav.  Some companies even sell organic ketchup t my local Walmart lol. I've tried some but still nothing better than homemade.  I have a buddy that makes it for me. I'll have to see if he will give me the recipe.

Indeed.

For the ‘original’ variety of ketchup sold in the USA, there are 4 grams of sugar per 17 grams of ketchup. So, what’s the rest of ketchup made of? Vinegar, 2 different types of corn syrup (fructose), salt, and other undisclosed spices.
