Way to go, Hunt's!!

Hunt's, a ConAgra Foods brand, recently announced that they have removed high fructose corn syrup from each and every ketchup product. In their first recipe tweak in 40 years, Hunt's 100% Natural Ketchup is now made with only five simple ingredients: tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, salt and seasoning. Newswire reports:

"In direct response to consumer demand, Hunt's is pleased to offer ketchup sweetened with sugar and containing only five simple ingredients," said Ryan Toreson, Hunt's Ketchup brand manager. "Parents are looking for wholesome meals and ingredients they recognize—and the taste of Hunt's ketchup is something both kids and adults love. Even with the new recipe, we have maintained the same great tangy, sweet taste that Hunt's has always had and that consumers tell us they prefer."

The 100% Natural Ketchup began rolling out to major markets nationwide in mid-April and consumers can expect to find product on shelves everywhere by mid-May.
