Testing Tuesdays - Tomato Ketchup from Hunter and Gather (£3.59)
Can you cut out all foods and ingredients from your pre-Keto life?
You may be able to ..... but I struggle with a few things, and ketchup is one of them!
Whether it's a bacon sandwich (keto bread of course), alongside a carb free fry-up breakfast or with a burger, I like ketchup!
Its acidic hit is the perfect accompaniment to fried foods or dishes with a high fat content - cheese on toast without a dollop of ketchup......perish the thought.
I have tried Heinz's 50% sugar ketchup - but at 12g carbs per 100g (almost 2g per tablespoon) I had to use it sparingly. So I went in search of an alternative and found Hunter and Gather's Unsweetened Classic Tomato Ketchup online here.
It's a little bit more acidic, almost spicy, than it's mainstream counterpart and I swear I can taste a little bit of Worcester sauce in the background - which is fine by me! A keto diet can mean a higher fat content to meals, so this zingy ketchup is absolutely perfect for the job.
At 6.8g carbs per 100g it's almost spot-on 1g per tablespoon, which should be easy to accommodate on most keto regimes. And at £3.59 for 250g it won't break the bank either.
There's not a lot more to review ...... ketchup is, well..... ketchup! But this delivers what you want; it's tomato-y (if there is such a word), it's zingy, it is just the right thickness, it brings that required acidic hit.
Definitely worth a try.
Score out of 10?
10/10 - it does the job perfectly. A bacon roll is not a real bacon roll without ketchup, and at 1g carbs per tbsp this is perfect (it's not too high in calories either).
Would we buy it again?
Yes! This will be a constant sauce in our fridge.
They also do a barbecue sauce (which we will test later) and a range of mayos (which I need to buy again as I dropped the horseradish mayo and it didn't survive!)
Is this a sponsored review ?
No we bought these ourselves..
