you can buy Waldens FArms sugar free ketchup at most health foods stores. I can buy them also at Sprouts and HomeLAnd.

Do you have either of those stores near you?

I've been able to find Heinz no-sugar ketchup at many different places. If you don't see it, ask the manager if they can order it for you.

I like Heinz best of all of the sugar-free ketchups. I find it at WalMart, Food Lion (in the South) and other grocery stores. However, I've gone to making my own as it's really simple and easy and cheap, and I make enough to last at least a couple of months. Linda Sue has a great recipe: http://genaw.com/lowcarb/evenbetter_heinz_ketchup.html

I use Tagatose as one of the sweeteners when I make this and it tastes even better!

I'm with Diana, a little dab of catsup for $5 bucks is not going to last very
long around here.

Linda's recipe is very good.

Since I really like the Heinz sugar free ketchup, I bought a bottle of it and used it to compare and tweak my homemade ketchup that I made with Linda Sue's recipe. Honestly, it's so easy and quick to make, I'm not inclined to pay 5-6 times as much to buy it any more!

Heinz is the best IMO but it is called Reduced Sugar, not SF so look for that. We don't eat a ton of ketchup but I always keep this on hand for burgers, etc.

Homemade ketchup

I would vote for Linda Sue's recipe mentioned here. It's the best - so easy to make and better than anything you could purchase. It's all we use any more. Recipe is easy, keeps well.

It can't be sugar free... tomatoes are technically fruit and contain sugar.

You are right about that. I guess we should be saying "no sugar added", since there is some fruit sugar present in the tomatoes.

Thank you to those who mentioned LindaSue's ketchup recipe. I had no idea she had one. Will try this for sure!

I had made my own LC ketchup from scratch (starting with my own tomatoes) to can before, and it was OK, but not great. If this is great, I may just end up making a big batch and canning it.

To the OP, I definitely agree with others- making your own of anything is almost always going to be much cheaper than buying a pre-made specialty product, so it's definitely worth a try.

It is good, but I wouldn't call it ketchup.... I made that years ago, and I liked it, but it doesn't come close to ketchup.... I have found the Heinz ketchup for $3.29 - $3.79 almost at every store near here. I have bought it at Walmart, Redner's Market, and Wegman's.

You might want to try it again--she's updated the ingredients. I just use hers as a base and taste and add ingredients until it is indistiguishable from Heinz regular or Heinz sugar-free ketchup.

I do not use both tomato paste and tomato sauce as she does, as every canned tomato sauce I can find is just tomato paste, water, and seasonings. I also like it better uncooked and I don't add the guar or any kind of gum, as I don't like the texture. Cooking it does make it taste more like regular grocery store ketchup, though.

I don't know which recipe you tried but the one I use now is almost exactly like Heinz as far as the flavor and the consistency. The one difference is that mine isn't as salty as Heinz. Of course you could add more salt if you like. Cooking the ketchup makes all the difference in the consistency. I actually store mine in an old Heinz bottle because it's easy to dispense that way. There was still a little of the Heinz left in the bottle when I added mine to the bottle and I really couldn't tell the difference. There is maybe 10% Heinz and 90% mine in the bottle now.

LindaSue - I want to make your ketchup, we have been using the Heinz brand quite a lot lately and it is getting expensive. Do you know how long your ketchup will keep in the refrigerator? I was thinking of making a double recipe but wasn't sure if it was a good idea?? I have been making your meatloaf recipe quite often and we really love it. I add some sauteed onions, garlic and mushrooms - really good.

i also use the Heinz reduced sugar.

but, i am extremely sparing with the portions. i use about 1 tsp per single, double, or even triple burger. just like salad dressing, it does not have to drown in it.also, i stretch my latinum that way. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

I make LindaSue's recipe consistently and I find that it keeps just like grocery store ketchup--I make a triple batch and keep it for 2-3 months and it always tastes as fresh as the day I made it.

Heinz has changed the look of the bottle again and now you only get 13 ounces instead of 14. Plus, the price has gone up too, I think. It's $2.49 at Walmart and $2.38 at Kroger here. Here's what the bottle looks like now:

That's what it is here, too. Have you done a recent price check on your recipe? I use Contadina tomato paste as I think it is the best, but haven't put together a price yet. I make a triple batch of your recipe, tweaked a little to my liking.

I buy Great Value tomato paste at Walmart, which is 44-cents, and I usually spend .20-.25 per can of tomato sauce. So, for about 16 ounces of ketchup, it costs me approximately 80-cents to make.

fantastic! and your recipe is so quick and easy. Since I don't buy the tomato sauce, I just figure in the cost of my sweetener mix at about $.50 give or take for 32 oz. That makes my version come out about the same as yours as I use more tomato paste--one large can for the whole double batch. Never any reason to buy IMHO.

WOE: Low Carb
I was actually browsing for a low carb peach recipe (if you could call a peach low carb), an came across this thread, so what did I do? I made Linda Sue's ketchup recipe. While it is still simmering away, the taste is wonderful. I gave my husband a taste of Heinz and a taste of the homemade and he preferred Linda Sue's recipe. I am sure it will be even better after being refrigerated. One thing I did find is that it may be a little sweeter than the Heinz, but that can easily be adjusted on the next batch. Also, for those that think it is not comparable, you could mix a batch of this with a bottle, or even a half bottle of Heinz to combine the flavors. Just an option. I actually have about 1/4 bottle left, so will just put this ketchup in with in to use the bottle. I am glad I came across this recipe.

Mari, one thing I've noticed about Splenda is that it can taste really sweet when the food is still warm but it loses quite a bit of sweetness once it has been chilled. You said that you had tasted the ketchup while it was still hot/warm so I thought I'd mention that.
