Small changes: ketchup

Who doesn't love ketchup? On a burger or some fresh cut fries. Mmmm. This is the classic Heinz ketchup, the ingredients include both corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. It also includes natural flavoring, which we've learned can be anything found in nature. Check out this link. Don't think it's true? Just a couple of weeks ago we watched Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and observed as he went into a lab and tasted some of the "natural raspberry" flavoring that companies use. It's natural alright, straight from a beaver's anal glands. You go ahead and enjoy your "natural flavoring"--I'd rather eat a real raspberry. But enough about that, who knows what they mean by natural in ketchup -or catsup as it's sometimes called.

Here's a better alternative. It's the store brand organic ketchup. Read those ingredients, you know exactly what they are. This is a much better choice to top your burger with. 

Remember: Just because they sell it in the store does not mean that you should eat it.
