History Of Tomato Ketchup
Did you know that the original tomato ketchup dates back to the 17th century and has its origins with the Chinese?
It was discovered by British explorers and brought back to the UK where about a century later it evolved into a sauce that is fairly similar to the ketchup we enjoy today. In the early 1800′s tomato ketchup had made it’s way to the United States and recipes were further refined by the good people of the day. Ketchup as we know it became commonplace in the early 1900′s but was banned by the Food and Drug Administration of the day, due to the use of Sodium Benzoate, a preservative which carried some health concerns. Henry J Heinz, recognized the popularity of ketchup and given the health concerns sought a new ketchup recipe, and from thereon Heinz Tomato Ketchup was born!
While Heinz Tomato Ketchup is certainly the most famous, it’s not the only mass produced ketchup. There are hundreds of different varieties and we’ll be looking at weird and wonderful ketchups from around the World and also taking a serious angle investigating which ketchup’s are healthy and which aren’t quite so good for our bodies.
