Israel Bans Heinz Ketchup Because it’s Linked to Liver, Pancreas, Immune System, and Brain Issues

Israel Bans Heinz Ketchup Because its Linked to Liver Pancreas Immune System and Brain IssuesThe 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.

Heinz Ketchup Ingredients

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.

Low tomato content

Now, just a minute! Heinz just admitted that the standard for what’s called ketchup in the United States has only 21% tomato in it. And that’s tomato concentrate, not fresh tomatoes. Tomato paste (with no added salt) contains a significantly higher amount of sugar, sodium, and carbohydrates per serving than raw tomatoes.

The company’s website posts the nutritional information and ingredients of all of their products. 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.

High sugar

With high sugar comes higher health risks. High fructose corn syrup, as well as any other form of sugar in our food, can contribute to:

  • unhealthy weight gain
  • type 2 diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • extra belly fat
  • heart disease
  • fatty liver disease
  • pancreatic cancer
  • reduced immune strength

Of course, consuming reasonable amounts of natural sugar found in whole foods probably won’t increase your risk of heart disease, but it’s easy to lose track of added sugar in your diet.

The American Heart Association recommends limiting added sugar to only 100 calories a day for women and 150 calories a day for men to encourage heart health.

Make Your Own Ketchup!

Luckily, making your own (real) ketchup is easier than many people think. This recipe skips the tomato paste and uses fresh crushed tomatoes instead, allowing you to cut down sugar levels.

This recipe also features apple cider vinegar and coconut sugar, which provide great benefits that Heinz’ brand ketchup cannot. Coconut sugar keeps many of the nutrients of the plant it’s derived from, including iron, zinc, calcium, potassium, and antioxidants.

Apple cider vinegar has great anti-bacterial properties and helps you feel full after you eat. There are many reasons to incorporate these two ingredients in your cooking:

  • Treat cold and flu
  • Soothe upset stomach
  • Help lose weight
  • Fight free radicals
  • Promote healthy skin, hair, and nails
  • Help manage anemia
  • Promote bone health
  • Reduce risk of stroke
  • Help treat high blood pressure
