Review: Nature’s Hollow Sugar Free Ketchup Sweetened with Xylitol

Filed under: New Product — @ April 13, 2009

Get all the taste of ketchup that you love without the HFCS

Although it was once proposed back in the early 1980s to be classified as a vegetable, ketchup has and always will be a part of the American diet. This popular condiment used on hamburgers, hot dogs, and anything else for a sweet tomato flavor boost has a major problem for those of us who are livin’ la vida low-carb, though. It’s LOADED with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which we now know from a recent published study contains mercury. I never realized ketchup had sugar in it prior to going on the Atkins diet in 2004 and always thought of it as a healthy food. Boy, was I wrong!

Well, it can be now if you choose a ketchup product that does not use HFCS and I’m pleased to share one that I’ve found that’s perfect for your low-carb lifestyle. It’s from Nature’s Hollow and it is Sugar Free Ketchup Sweetened with Xylitol. This is an ideal ketchup for people with diabetes, low-carb dieters, and anyone looking to eliminate HFCS or reduce the sugar consumption in their diet. I’ve used Xylitol in my diet quite often over the past five years and it is a sugar alcohol that tastes fabulous as an alternative to sugar. It provides the perfect sweetness for this ketchup.

Each 1 tablespoon serving has just 2g net carbs (6 total carbs minus the 4g Xylitol). The best part about this ketchup is there aren’t any funky ingredients in it–tomato puree, apple cider vinegar, Xylitol, spices, salt, arrowroot. That’s it! The end product is something you can feel confident about putting on whatever you’d normally use with ketchup. I know some people who eat ketchup on their eggs or even on their vegetables. And you can’t forget about making your own low-carb meatloaf with this stuff!

Whatever you like to eat with your ketchup, now you don’t have to worry about ingesting the carbs and HFCS that come from the typical ones you see on supermarket shelves. Try some Nature’s Hollow Sugar Free Ketchup Sweetened with Xylitol for yourself and let me know what you think!
