We’ve been sent some Real Good Tomato Ketchup to test today. The ketchup is 100% vegan, available at Ocado, The Co-op, and on Amazon, and has much less salt and sugar than other brands, making it a great option if you’re trying to cut down on these. Read on to find out what we thought.
The ketchup was the same consistency as you’d get from other brands, perhaps a tiny bit thinner. It came in a handy squeezy plastic bottle and was easy to dispense. It was nice and smooth, and perfect for dipping.
We weren’t sure what to expect from the taste, as reduced sugar/salt products can sometimes take some getting used to. We were pleasantly surprised to find that this has a rich, tomatoey taste with a slight tang. It’s much more reminiscent of fresh tomatoes than other ketchups are, and we didn’t miss the extra sugar or salt. We tested it with chips and Quorn chicken nuggets, and it added some nice extra flavour to both.
We can imagine it being useful in cooking, too, since the tomato flavour is quite strong. We sometimes use ketchup mixed with Sriracha and other herbs to marinate baked tofu, and can imagine that tasting recipe great with this product.
We’d definitely recommend giving this ketchup a go if you’re put off by the amount of sugar and salt in regular brands. It would also be a great option for kids, especially if they like to have ketchup with every meal.
