In case you haven’t heard, salt is bad. Harumph. Still, Heinz is changing their ketchup recipe to include less salt.
Will that mean less flavor? We’ll find out this summer.

They should just leave it alone.
We use the salt-free Heinz ketchup and it’s good on home cooked food like burgers made with seasoning mixed in, or duck fat roasted fries, etc. But straight up Heinz ketchup is one of the more perfect condiments out there and should be left as is. I smell a new Coke style reversal coming…
there's something strangely wonderful about that photo .... the colors, the reflections in the bottles ...
Heinz always amazes me because its like Coke...it is EVERYWHERE. Every restaurant on the planet, it seems like, has Heinz. In 2004 John Kerry was told by his people to downplay how mind bogglingly wealthy his wife was because she had married Jack Heinz, I can't even wrap my head around that.
I guess Hunt's Ketchup is 2nd-best selling worldwide?
 Hunt's is owned by ConAgra (aka one of the most terrifying corporations on Earth) so I'm not sure. Only because ConAgra owns like 70% of the processed food in everyone's kitchen...the other 30% being owned by Philip Morris.
The salt I can live with. The high fructose corn syrup is another matter. I much prefer their organic ketchup for exactly that reason - and  knuckes to me, the organic version it tastes better.
