Is Ketchup Healthy?


Here’s one healthy ketchup, and the reasons why many popular ketchups are unhealthy.


While ketchup has the potential to be healthy, certain ingredients make ketchup unhealthy. The most popular brands of ketchup contain added sugar, salt, and high fructose corn syrup. These added ingredients can help cause weight gain.


However, certain brands of ketchup are actually healthy and can help with weight loss.


Bad Ingredients

When selecting a healthy ketchup, look out for sugar, sucralose, and high fructose corn syrup. Though a tablespoon of ketchup might contain 3-4 grams of added sugar, it is best to avoid added sugar whenever possible.

Each of our small decisions, like the small decision to not eat unhealthy ketchup, adds up.

Avoiding products with added sugar is a huge step toward losing weight and keeping the weight off.


Key Point

Check food ingredient labels, and stay away from products with added sugar.
