Ketchup Tomato Organic
Ketchup (also spelled Catsup or Catchup), also known as tomato ketchup or red sauce, is a condiment usually made from tomatoes. The primary ingredients in a typical modern ketchup are tomato concentrate, corn syrup (or other sugar), vinegar, salt, spice and herb extracts (including celery), spice and garlic powder[1]. Ketchup is often used with french fries, hamburgers, sandwiches, eggs, and grilled or fried meat. Ketchup is also used as a base for various sauces. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified.
