3 New Items Added to the No High-Fructose Corn Syrup List

Heinz Simply Ketchup

Heinz Simply Ketchup

Here are a few additions to the No High-Fructose Corn Syrup List.   My favorite addition is Simply Heinz ketchup. I like to make my own ketchup sometimes, but it’s nice to know I can just pick up a bottle in a pinch. It seems really natural and my family loves it.  It also says on the bottle it is Gluten-Free, Kosher, and  Pareve.

The other two additions are beverages: Jarritos soda pop and Powerade (contains artificial sweeteners).

One of my biggest irritations with HFCS being in almost everything, is how bad it is when it comes to barbecue sauce.  There really are very few choices when it comes to finding barbecue sauce with no high-fructose corn syrup in it.

That’s why I especially like the Simply Heinz ketchup. You can use it as a base to make your own barbecue sauce without re-inventing the wheel, and you know what’s in it.

I spent months working on a homemade barbecue sauce recipe, and it was fun.  I learned a lot about building layers of flavor, how different spice combinations affected the flavor – even how getting the texture wrong can affect the flavor (you want to push the final product through a sieve, or you can wind up biting into bits of garlic, tomato seed, etc., which can be detrimental to your barbecue enjoyment).

But sometimes I just want a quick sauce I can throw together, and a ketchup-based sauce is quick and cooks well with things like chicken in the oven or on the stove top.  For barbecuing on a special day like 4th of July, though, I still prefer to make my own.

  1. Webster grill has new and multiple flavor bbq sauces that have no HFCs!!! And they are good!

  2. I just found your list today – thank you very much for making and maintaining it! I am bookmarking your site for reference, since it is time consuming to find these products just by reading labels at the store!

    I wanted to add that I recently found a line of BBQ sauces- Weber – that has no HFCS. The label says no corn syrup, and the ingredients list has neither HFCS or corn syrup. The labeling can be so tricky sometimes.

  3. Hello, Sherry.

    Really just contacting you to say thanks for maintaining this site. It’s proved to be an invaluable resource. Also would like to mention “Earth Friendly Wheat Bread” (Pan-o-Gold Baking Co.) which I have been purchasing at Caputo’s Fresh Markets in the suburbs west of Chicago. (No. I have no financial interest in either the aforementioned bakery or Caputo’s Markets). The ingredients listed on the package are as follows: crushed 100% whole wheat, water, unbleached wheat flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour), honey, yeast, liquid soybean oil, wheat gluten, salt, vinegar.

    Pretty good alternative bread. Keep up the good work!

    Grateful to have found your blog. In the last 12 years, two friends of mine died of pancreatic cancer. One of them was seldom seen without a Dr Pepper in her hand, the other without that frosty red and white can of Coke. A coincidence perhaps, but I am convinced there was a cause and effect at deadly work in both tragedies. Please continue spreading the very bad news about HFCS, and the better news about the many culinary alternatives to it (and sucrose, too).
