You are in a big trouble if you love Ketchup

Ketchups neither contain protein nor fibre. In fact, they are packed with sugar, salt, spices, and fructose corn syrup. Excessive consumption of foods with fructose corn syrups are related to increased risk of obesity, insulin resistance, high triglycerides and fatty liver diseases. One must watch out for sugar and sodium intake, read the ingredient list and nutrition facts well, before adding ketchup. That’s because it can cause clinical conditions such as high blood pressure and mineral imbalances.

HERE ARE SEVEN HEALTH ISSUES THAT KETCHUP CAN LEAD TO

  1. LOW NUTRIENT DENSITY

A nutrient-dense food provides protective micronutrients and helps to build immunity. On the other hand, ketchup has low nutritional value, and does not contain protein and fibre.

  1. HEART DISEASE

Excessive consumption of foods with fructose corn syrup is related to high triglycerides and heart problems.

  1. OBESITY AND INSULIN RESISTANCE

High sugar content and fructose corn syrup can lead to obesity and insulin resistance.

  1. ACIDITY AND HEARTBURN

Tomato ketchup, being an acidic food, due to the presence of acids such as malic acid and citric acid can trigger acidity and heartburn. Thus, those who have digestive problems such as digestive stress or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) should avoid tomato ketchup.

  1. JOINT PROBLEMS

Processed and preserved foods have been associated with the risk of inflammation, which means you could end up with joint problems.

  1. KIDNEY ISSUES

Processed and high sodium content foods increase the calcium in the urine, which may increase the chance of developing kidney stones.

  1. ALLERGIES

Tomatoes that are there in the ketchup are rich in histamines and can lead to allergic reactions such as sneezing, and even shortness of breath.
