The FDA Finally Admitted: Store-Bought Ketchup Does Not Contain Fresh Tomatoes-This Is What We Actually Eat!
A lot of people consume store-bought ketchup on a daily basis. However, opposite to what we are told by ketchup manufacturers, this product contains everything but actual tomatoes. Namely, the FDA confirmed that there is no presence of fresh tomatoes in ketchup, but only diluted tomato paste made from boiled and dehydrated tomatoes. These tomatoes lose a great amount of their nutritional value when processed.
Believe it or not, the FDA has established guidelines for certain contaminants present in the food we purchase daily! The acceptable levels of mold contamination go as low as 15% in canned tomatoes to as high as 45% for ketchup. Additionally, the FDA permits up to 30 fly eggs per 100 grams of tomato sauce, that is, two maggots per every 100 grams of tomato juice.
Unfortunately, the FDA reacts only when 6% or more of chips show rot from pre- or post-harvest infection. Take a look at some of the common food tricks manufacturers of potato chips practice:
A smaller package of tomato chips has only 1 potato
A medium-sized potato chips package has 2 potatoes
An extra large potato chips package has 4 potatoes
Surimi sticks contain no shrimp, just finely ground fish
All in all, it’s time to pause, and think about the products you buy on a daily basis and whether they are a threat to your health, but the health of your loved ones as well. Choose carefully!
