Yo!

Just wondering if ketchup is bad with meals I read theres sugar in it, I avoid sugar like the plauge normally, just wondering how ketchup is processed in the body, is it mainly carbs, high GI carbs or what?

How much sugar is in it? A little bit won't hurt.

It really depends on how much you have. It does have some sugar, but not a ton, so as long as you keep it under control, I don't think it is too big of a deal. Still, try experimenting with hot sauce and/or salsa as flavoring agents, as they are lower in sugar.

if ur that worried about ketchup.. use the green one. anyone seen that? its like incredible hulk ketchup.. looks nasty. the look alone may keep you from using too much of it. chicken doesn't look so appetizing with green stuff on it

As other board memebers have said, there is a small amount of sugar in ketchup but it is nothing to worry yourself about, enjoy it.

Good posts. I wouldn't worry about the ketchup much. Try some hot sauce.

I think the most important thing to worry about is...what are you putting ketchup (Catsup) on???
Seems like most thing I like ketchup with are baaadddd.

home made salsa is great... fresh tomato, onion, celantro, cerano pepper, little salt and tabasco

tastes better than ketchup

If you're diet allows high sodium, try a little bit of Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce...

Ketchup is acutally pretty good for you. It's like concentrated tomatoes. The processing that the tomatoes go through to become ketchup actually makes lycopene, which is a good antioxidant, more bioavailable. I don't know about sugar and sodium content but for the amount of ketchup you eat with a serving of, say, fries you probably aren't taking in that much.

The main ingredient in Ketchup is sugar.

Keep it down to less than a teaspoon and it should be fine.
