Over the years, people have been becoming more aware of what we put in our bodies. There has been an uptick in people around the country taking more time to workout and eat properly. While that is all well and good there are products that we might think are good, but are not. And, one of them turns out to be one most of us use daily.
There are major food corporations that are poisoning consumers every day and many continue to turn a blind eye to the dangers of these products. Luckily these sentiments have been changing with the rise of organic supermarkets.
One of those companies is Heinz and what was discovered will blow your mind. We use Heinz Ketchup to compliment our burgers, french fries, and onion rings, but what if I told you that it was not what you thought it was. A new study has been released that shows that this tasty condiment is not really ketchup. Eek, that does not sound tasty at all.
You wouldn’t think that something as innocuous as ketchup would be damaging to your health, but it actually is. You see, a company in Israel did a study on the favorite ketchup giant and the results were shocking. It was determined that Heinz ketchup only had 21 percent tomato concentrate against the 61 percent concentrate it claimed to have.
And, the ingredients that are listed that are in this product are horrible for your body.
Top Secret I.D. did a study on these ingredients and what they found was disturbing.
1.High Fructose Corn Syrup
Heinz Ketchup is full of high fructose corn syrup, which is exceedingly unhealthy and toxic, and comes from genetically modified corn and acts similarly to sugar, but has even more detrimental effects.
It increases the blood sugar levels and poses a threat to destroy the liver eventually. Its use causes a weakened immune system, heart disease, obesity, and numerous other harmful effects.
Moreover, we highly advise you to avoid this ingredient, as its effects are ven more serious. Namely, an article published on the website of Dr.
Mark Hyman revealed another disturbing fact. A researcher from the FDA demanded a barrel of high fructose corn syrup from corn producers in order to test it several times, and they kept rejected his demand. Afterward, he succeeded to get one from certain beverage company on the market.
His research discovered high levels of Mercury in it, which is an acutely toxic heavy metal, linked to autism, damages of the brain and nervous system, and numerous harmful effects in children.
This as well explained the initial intention of the manufacturer of Heinz ketchup to separate this ingredient in two, probably aiming at actually separating the high amount of mercury in it.
Being a toxic poisonous sweetener and a GMO ingredient at the same time, high fructose corn syrup is something you should always avoid.
2. Distilled Vinegar & Sugar
The second ingredient in Heinz ketchup is distilled vinegar, and they also list 4 grams of sugar per serving, meaning per each tablespoon.
This vinegar is also a GMO, that is, its production process includes chemicals and harmful toxic pesticides. They have also added ‘natural flavors’ on the ingredients and 4 grams of sugar.
This great amount of sugar in the product will skyrocket your blood sugar levels and will damage your liver and pancreas. Hence, despite the great amount of high fructose syrup, they have also added sugar, most likely from GMO sources, like GMO beet sugar.
So, in case the high fructose, corn syrup will not succeed to damage your immune system, liver, metabolism, pancreas, brain and nervous system, numerous GMOs, chemicals and sugar will do it for sure!
3. No Nutritional Value: Heinz ketchup contains no protein and no fiber. It may only include a very low quantity if cooked lycopene from the ‘tomato paste”, but it will not be enough to b absorbed in the body. Therefore, Heinz ketchup is a composition of chemicals, most likely mercury, sugar and GMO foods.
This article’s aim was to raise the awareness of this ketchup, as it is commonly present on our tables. If you want to preserve your health, as well as the well- being of your family, you should never consume this harmful ketchup.
So, the long and short of it, in my opinion, is to stay far away from this product. There are plenty of other brands of ketchup that actually use real tomatoes instead of fillers that can harm us. In all honesty, it makes sense of why cancer is on the rise, but if we take control of what we are eating we can make a difference.
What do you think about this ketchup brand? Will you still purchase it?
