Ketchup is one of the most used condiments in America yet it’s processed and full of bad ingredients. In fact most store bought brands such as Heinz, Hunt’s contain high fructose corn syrup that comes from genetically modified corn and is made into a sweetener.
High fructose syrup is very toxic for your bodies as it causes inflammation and can lead to obesity, and all other health problems. Additionally, excess fructose may increase harmful substances called advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which can damage our cells.
This will make you think twice about ingesting high fructose corn syrup.
