Heinz Tomato Ketchup 50% Less Sugar & Salt, which will be there with you and your family, every step of the way.
But don’t just take our word for it! Which? taste tests found that Heinz’s 50% Less Sugar & Salt ketchup tastes almost identical to the classic Heinz Tomato Ketchup we all know and love.
They asked 100 people to blind-taste, rate and compare Heinz’s iconic and original tomato ketchup to Heinz 50% Less Sugar & Salt. The mighty original came out top, but the 50% Less was judged to taste so similar that you could be fooled for mistaking it for the original.
