FDA Admits: Ketchup Does Not Contain Fresh Tomatoes, This is What We Actually Consume


Nowadays there isn’t a person who doesn’t have ketchup in their kitchen, or potato chips stored as a late snack. Yet, what do we actually eat? What do we think we buy and what is actually packed in the products? For instance, it is extremely difficult to find fresh tomatoes in ketchup!

This is the truth

What ketchup contains is a diluted tomato paste instead of a real fresh tomato. The paste is made by boiling tomatoes, their dehydration, and after this they lose all their nutritional values, as admitted by FDA.


There is acceptable levels of mold contamination that vary as low as 15 percent in canned tomatoes, to as high as 45 percent for ketchup. Crazy!?

And the FDA allows up to 30 fly eggs per every 100 grams of tomato sauces, or up to two maggots per every 100 grams of tomato juice.

Potato Chips

The FDA only takes action when 6 percent or more of chips show rot from pre- or post-harvest infection.

Look at the following examples where you can find some shocking information about the processed food tricks:

One little package of tomato chips contains just 1 potato.
One medium sized potato chips package contains 2 potatoes.
One extra large potato chips packages contain about 4 potatoes.
Surimi sticks contain no meat of shrimp, but finely ground fish.
Once again, think about it now- what do you buy and what do you get for it ?!

Now whenever you go to the grocery, think about what you buy and what you get for it?!
