Homemade Sugar Free Ketchup

Homemade Sugar Free Ketchup

A sweet and tangy Homemade Sugar Free Ketchup recipe that’s easy to make with healthy ingredients. No corn or high fructose corn syrup. Perfect for your favorite burgers and fries!

Ketchup is pretty darn simple. The main ingredients being tomatoes, sweeteners, vinegar, salt and spices. However, when dealing with a Candida overgrowth or when following a specific diet, even the most basic ingredients can throw you off. With Candida specifically, sugar and vinegar should be avoided since they both feed yeast.

Ketchup Upgrades

In this healthier twist, we replace high fructose corn syrup with Liquid Stevia, white vinegar is replaced with Apple Cider Vinegar (a much healthier alternative) and table salt is upgraded to Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Simple swaps that make a BIG difference!

Ketchup LOVE

I love this recipe so much because it always surprises my personal chef clients, especially the ones following very strict Candida Diets or those with Diabetes.  They assume that ketchup is off the menu, then this shows up and it’s like Christmas morning 🙂

So there you have it, a Ketchup recipe that’s EASY to make and healthy too!

Brilliant! I’ve tried experimenting with my own ketchup but never got the proportions down to a science. Thanks for the recipe! For anyone that doesn’t have tomato paste on hand and looking to use up some tomatoes ripening on the counter, you can peel and deseed the tomatoes, chop them up, and cook down until most of the liquid has evaporated. Then blend up to make a paste!
