The ketchup in general, is something that is not lacking in the refrigerators of the Spaniards. Unfortunately, what most people who buy it do not know, is that no is nothing good for our health. Although you think it's just ideal tomato sauce for burgers or hot dogs, it actually contains many other condiments like:
- Distilled vinegar
- Corn syrup with high fructose levels (one way different from sugar)
- Normal corn syrup (more sugar)
- Onion powder
- Natural flavors
The list of ingredients in foods is ordered by the amount of that ingredient that food contains. In this case, corn syrup ranks second and third in the list, that is, this food contains a amount of sugar hulking.
Mr. Eastcoastman did a small experiment filling the Heinz ketchup pot with the actual amount of sugar it contains.
To our surprise, it counts nothing more and nothing less than 33 scoops of sugar or what is the same, more than 2 cups.
The amount of ketchup that you usually throw in the hamburger contains 2 tablespoons of sugar.
The American Heart Association recommends that women do not consume more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day, without However, only the ketchup that you put on the hamburger is man 2 tablespoons
In addition, the vinegar distilled another ingredient that contains ketchup in greater quantity, is not healthy either. It is made from genetically modified corn, something that Heinz confirms openly on his website.
One of the carcinogenic chemicals found in pesticides that is used in genetically modified crops known as " glyphosate ", has been found in the blood and urine of people around the world. There have also been cases of acute poisoning attributed to this chemical. In addition, glyphosate has been linked to autism leaky gut syndrome and other autoimmune disorders .
At the end of the list we see that there are "spices" and "flavorings" natural, "does not sound bad, does not it? But what are they really?
These companies are allowed to hide the complete list of ingredients so that the competitors can not copy them, so only they know what it contains.
What is clear is that this type of product is not is nothing beneficial for our health, it is best that we do our own tomato sauce at home and get rid of problems.
