Is ketchup good for you, or is ketchup bad for you?

Having seen the calories in ketchup, one question that you may have on your mind is whether ketchup is good or bad for you? Well the truth is that despite the fact that ketchup is made from tomatoes, it has a lot of sugar added to it, and holds very few nutritional benefits. It is high in sodium as well which is not good, and therefore there is not a lot that can be said in favor of tomato ketchup being something that you should include in your diet.

If you only use a little bit of it, and not with every single meal then it is not going to do you any harm, but with all the calories in tomato ketchup and it's high sugar and sodium content, it is not something that you should be eating excessively.
