Unlike what we think, the tomato concentration is the product does not exceed 21%.
Distilled vinegar
Distilled vinegar is made from genetically modified corn.
Sugar in ketchup, (especially HFCS or E122) produced from GM, is actually added to nearly all processed foods. Consuming large amounts of HFCS may raise blood sugar levels, decrease the function of your immune system, and increase the risk of obesity and heart disease.
Just one tablespoon of commercially prepared ketchup typically contains 4 grams of sugar. If you're trying to lose weight, then you must avoid ketchup completely.
Salt One tablespoon of Ketchup can contain up to 0.3 milligrams of sodium, which is a relatively small proportion. Bigger portions mean more sodium, so you should limit your ketchup intake.
Spices and Onion Powder
Most spices added in Ketchup are natural and safe. Beware of unhealthy industrial spices, found in some products in the United States and some other countries, which are very close to the natural flavor but completely unhealthy and cause health problems.

Remember: For better health, eat in moderation and try gradually to reduce the amount that you have without deprivation, and you will feel awesome every day!
