    I didn’t realise Heinz Ketchup would have more sugar than Coke! I shared my Spicy Lentils recipe today! Have a lovely week!

      I was pretty surprised as well! I had to redo my calculations a couple of times to make sure my math was right. 🙂 Great recipe btw – I’m a big fan of lentils!

  2. Jess says:

    I knew ketchup had added sugar in it, but this is disturbing! It just goes to show how carefully we need to know what is in our food.

    • Raj says:

      I agree. Did you know the original recipe for tomato ketchup didn’t have *any* sugar? We’ve become quite the sugar society in the last 50 years.

    While ketchup may contain more sugar in the long run, the comparisons weren’t exactly equal or fair. Yes, we can all eat 2-3 scoops of ice cream, even drink a can of coke with a meal, and we can definitely devour a pastry scone or 2 in one sitting. The problem is that no one in their right minds would drink an entire container of ketchup in a day as part of their regular regimen.
