Why are There so Many carbs in ketchup?
Traditional ketchup is made up of a few high carb ingredients…
For one, tomatoes aren’t a low carb veggie. For this low carb ketchup recipe, we’ll be using tomatoes in the form of a paste. Tomato paste is basically super concentrated tomatoes, that’ve been cooked down and strained until they form a, you guessed it, paste!
2 Tablespoons of tomato paste contain 7 grams of carbs — but you can’t really have ketchup without tomatoes, so, to cut down the carbs in ketchup, we’ll have to get rid of another other ingredient…
Such as the sweetener in ketchup — typically sugar, honey or corn syrup. If you’re sticking to low carb foods, you already know this is a no-no.
In this low carb ketchup recipe, I simply swapped the high carb sweetener with…
The secret Ingredient in sugar free ketchup
The sweetener I LOVE using in this sugar free ketchup recipe is erythritol.
It’s a sugar alcohol that’s absolutely delicious, has a similar mouth feel to regular sugar — personally I can’t tell a difference! If you aren’t familiar with this ingredient, I’d strongly recommend adding it to your low carb shopping list.
In this low carb ketchup, I used powdered erythritol so it would combine with the ingredient more easily. (since we aren’t cooking/heating anything)
If you don’t have powdered erythritol, you can put your granular erythritol in the food processor a few times until it’s a finer grain!
Another option is to make low carb ketchup recipe stevia sweetened — however I prefer the taste of erythritol!
Use this keto ketchup on…
No matter the season, this keto ketchup is a delicious addition to any of my low carb recipes!
I love to low carb meal prep with this — by making a big batch and freezing them in small containers. Then, whenever I’m craving ketchup, I have a jar at the ready!
This ketogenic diet ketchup is delicious to dip your low carb fried chicken in, or smother your low carb hamburger with. It makes for a delicious base to your salad dressing, even added to the top of your eggs if that’s your thing!
