Is Ketchup Making Us Sick? A nutritional comparison of 7 national ketchup brands [Infographic]

Americans Eat a LOT Of Ketchup


Visit any home kitchen in American, and you’ll likely find a bottle of ketchup. Ketchup is on the table of nearly every diner and typical American restaurant. We slather it on eggs, meats, potatoes. According to, Americans eat 71 pounds of ketchup every year. That’s a lot of freakin’ ketchup!


Most Ketchup Is Loaded With Carbs and Sugar

The average national brand of ketchup contains about between 8-10 grams of sugar – per 2 tablespoon serving. That’s 2.5 teaspoons of sugar in that one little serving of ketchup. And let’s be honest, most of us don’t eat only a single serving at a ketchup friendly meal.


Excess Sugar Is Poisoning Us


Sugar consumption in America is out of control. SugarScience conducted a review of 8,000 sugar studies. These studies find that sugar is clearly linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, liver disease and metabolic disorders.

Excess sugar is wreaking havoc on our health.

Most ketchup is loaded with it.

Why are we feeding this to our kids?
