Several years ago I started reading ingredient labels. I was blown away at what I discovered by this simple act. Almost everything has sugar in it. Or even worse, high fructose corn syrup which is generally made from genetically modified corn.
Commercially produced condiments are loaded with excess sugar. For example, two tablespoons of Heinz Ketchup has 8 grams of sugar. That's more sugar than 2 Chips Ahoy cookies!
Although organic ketchup is non-GMO, it still contains a similar amount of refined sugar as non-organic ketchup. So what's the solution? Make your own! It's fast, easy and healthy.
