We all know ketchup is one of the most popular condiments, but its primary uses typically involve a big juicy burger and plate of fries. It has a very sweet, salty and savoury taste that pleases taste buds and makes numerous foods more palatable. The classic ketchup we all know and love uses tons of sugar to make it sweet and appetizing. The ‘healthified’ classic ketchup uses coconut sugar, a sweetener derived from the flowers of palm trees to bring about that sugary taste without all of the caloric damage.
While classic ketchup is the most common, variations on ketchup bring out its other delicious and unique qualities. Mixing balsamic vinegar, kimchi or BBQ sauce with ketchup are all great ways to take the flavour profile up a notch.
