Yeast Free Ketchup

Yeast Free Ketchup

Ketchup is such a staple condiment and kids probably eat more ketchup than they do actual food at some meals.  Ketchup however is problematic for the candida dieter because it contains vinegar and sugar.  I was not sure if it was possible to make a yeast free version of ketchup that actually tasted good but I wanted to try.   I Googled homemade ketchup recipes and I got 3,210,000 results.  That is a lot of ketchup recipes and I was unsure of how to pick one to adapt.  In the end I went with one that I thought was the easiest.  I did not want to boil tomatoes so I started to narrow things down by finding a recipe that used tomato paste instead of whole tomatoes.  In the end I went “How to make Ketchup from Tomato Paste“ which is an article on eHow.   It’s not exactly Heinz but I don’t know if anything can be an adequate substitute for the high fructose corn syrup found in store bought Ketchup.  I hope that you will enjoy this alternative.  I especially like it with Meatloaf.

Specific Ingredients That I Used to Make Yeast Free Ketchup

    This ketchup recipe looks great! I was wondering if you had a mustard and/or a hot sauce recipe as well. I just found out I am allergic to vinegar and I put either mustard or hot sauce on just about everything, so I am very stressed about not having them. I would love any help you could offer. Thanks so much!

    Thanks so much for posting these! I will have to try the turkey sloppy joes sometime. I just started the candida diet a week ago after having a peristent yeast infection of the breasts (while breastfeeding :/) for 3 months. The creams and prescriptions were doing nothing. I was even taking 5 probiotics a day. I enventually had to take out sugars, processed foods and caffeine. I want to have hamburgers tonight, but I really wanted to be able to have condiments. :) Glad I found this.

    Can anyone tell me how to store the ketchup substitute (Does it need to be refrigerated?) and how long it will keep? Thanks! :o )

    Hi, You need to store the ketchup substitute in the refrigerator. I try to use it within 3 days. I hope this helps.

  • Susan Snider

    Thank you so much for the ketchup reciepe,I am going to try it.Just had to start the Candida diet and right now I am so confused on how to eat such limited foods. I am not a creative person when it comes to cooking,but I guess I am going to have to learn.

  • Avril

    can you use fresh ingredients?

  • Hi Avril,

    Thanks for stopping by. I am sure that you can use fresh ingredients but I have never tried it. I do not want to give you fresh ingredient substitutions without testing this first. I was able to find a fresh ingredient ketchup recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie. I hope this helps. Thanks again for stopping by.

    Be well,
