  • Sugar Free Ketchup

    Posted August 21, 2005 10:31 AM

    Here's a good recipe I develooped to replace commercial ketchup that has sugar in it.

    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    3/4 c water
    1/2 c white or cider vinegar
    1 t Lite salt
    1/4 t onion powder
    1/8 t garlic powder
    1-3 packets of your favorite sugar substitute according to taste AFTER the cooking

    Combine all in a medium saucepan, whisk to smooth consistency and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes, remove from heat, cool, cover and store in refrigerator.

    If you want a little more spice, add 1/8 t turmeric or more to your liking. It can change the color a little bit and make your ketchup lean a little toward Heinz 57 sauce. I personally like turmeric and use it a lot.

    You can also use malt vinegar if you like it better than white or cider.

    The only sugar in the entire recipe is the 3 g from the tomato paste which ends up being negligible in the 2 cups/16 oz this makes.

    Regular ketchup has about 3-4 g sugar per 1 T serving size.

    There is no added sugar in tomato paste.

    Tomato paste is also very low in sodium and very high in potassium so this can be used for low sodium needs better than regular ketchup that has sodium based salt.

    Lite salt is half potassium chloride and half sodium chloride so it is same for low sodium people.
