If you’ve read the label on commercially made ketchup you know the recipe is filled with refined sugar and other frightening ingredients. Our homemade healthy ketchup provides all the tangy ketchup taste without any of the bad ingredients. You can even use no-calorie natural sugar substitutes to cut the calories even more. This delicious ketchup is one of the best we’ve ever tasted and you will love it on burgers, fries, sandwiches, and anything else that tastes great with your favorite tomato condiment.
In many cases, fruits and vegetables in their raw form is the healthiest way to consume the food. When it comes to tomatoes, you actually enjoy more health benefits when they are cooked. Tomatoes are packed with lycopene, which many believe reduces a person’s risk for cancer. When tomatoes are cooked the lycopene is activated even more, so you enjoy greater benefits when you eat marinara sauce or ketchup. This gives you an opportunity to squeeze something healthy into your daily eating plan without going overboard with raw produce.
