While I‘m a big fan of ketchup on burgers, hot dogs and fries, I‘ve never really thought twice about what might be in the bright red condiment.
It turns out, the flavor I love so much is mostly the result of loads of sugar.
In fact, the average tablespoon of ketchup contains four grams of sugar—about the same as a typical chocolate chip cookie. But that‘s something that Good Food for Good is trying to change.
The company makes great-tasting sauces that also happen to be good for you, and their ketchups have only one net carb per serving. I had to taste it to believe it, and I was thrilled when the folks from Good Food for Good sent me two different varieties of ketchup to try myself.
“…it wasn‘t exactly like traditional ketchups, either. It was actually better.”
I was very curious to see how Good Food for Good‘s ketchup might differ from what I was used to…When it was finally time to give it a taste, I found that it wasn‘t exactly like traditional ketchups, either. It was actually better. The blend of spices and a hint of vinegar brought out the best parts of the flavor of a tomato, rather than masking them, and the inclusion of dates gave it a hint of sweetness without making it taste ultra sugary. Because of the thickness of the ketchup, I also found that I didn‘t need too much to get a lot of flavor. It was delicious on both regular fries and sweet potato ones, and even my Heinz ketchup-loving S.O. was sold on it after just one bite.
