Ketchup with the tangy benefits of Luke’s new curation!
The era of globalization and the advent of the western culture in India has introduced the generation to a tangy way of transforming their regular snacks into tasty savories. The combinations of chutney in breads and pickles with parathas are no longer constituents of school tiffin boxes. Instead, every millennial and GenZ is now heard screaming, “Where’s the Ketchup?” at the breakfast table.
Tomato Ketchup is a sweet, flavoursome dip which, in no time, has replaced all other food toppings. Serving as an added flavour to your ordinary snacks, Ketchup has simply become a plus one for everything from fries to maggi.
The modern commercialised market is flooded with products containing preservatives, additives and flavours which are mainly added to improve their shelf life and taste. The tastiness of the ketchup is a facade over the amount of harmful elements entering our body. Catering to these concerns of people, especially mothers, integrative and lifestyle coach,
Luke Coutinho and FOI together have curated an organic ‘Tomato Ketchup’ which is a healthy replacement to the ones that are loaded with chemicals and preservatives. At You Care Lifestyle, we have always aimed at inducing healthy and holistic practices in our day-to-day doings. Therefore, we wouldn’t want to break your ties with tomato ketchup; instead, it is our goodwill to suggest you a healthy replacement.

Did you know that a single store-bought ketchup packet contains almost twice as much sugar as the sauce itself?
Unlike the other concentrated Ketchup bottles arranged on the racks of supermarkets, FOI Food’s Tomato Ketchup isn’t amalgamated with excess amounts of sugar, starch and synthetic dyes. It is vegan, gluten free and doesn’t contain any kind of MSG, GMO or Soy. Under the supervision of the expert, the tomatoes are naturally grown and freshly blended without the spraying of formalin or any other chemical. Moreover, the jaggery required for the blend is also prepared organically without any adulteration. Luke’s embracement of this product is based on the fact that each of the bottles contains unadulterated ingredients like natural tomatoes, organic jaggery, himalayan pink salt, organic garlic and mixed spices.
But again, is this Ketchup obsession a healthy habit?
Well, we must remember that anything in excess always promotes repercussions. If we follow the suggestions of health experts, tomato ketchup can reap us some micronutrients and is usually not considered harmful as it is consumed in extremely small quantities per serve. However, an addiction or a scoopful squeeze everyday increases the chances of allergies and reactions.
FOI brings you excellent flavours in the context of everyday sauces. This delicious bottle of Tomato Ketchup is a marvellous combination with your favourite snacks such as chips, rolls, wraps and more. The tanginess of fresh natural tomatoes sweetened with organic jaggery is sure to change your mind if you believe in the preconception that ‘healthy can’t be tasty.’
Tomato ketchup is a standard sauce in every household. We have gathered together the juiciest natural tomatoes and combined them with organic jaggery to produce a savoury that contains all the goodness of the organic tomato fruit.
FOI’s Tomato ketchup has a creamy texture and a finger-licking tangy flavour. One can savour it as a dip as well as use it to toss your saucy food recipes. FOI foods as an organisation aims to bring the two words ‘healthy’ and ‘tasty’ all in a single plate. This is why we do not compromise on the authenticity of fresh ingredients. Our products are 100% Natural, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free and Non-GMO, fit for all types of consumers.
Using organic vegetables is a healthy inclusion in your diet and is also a nature friendly produce, cultivated without the spraying of harmful chemicals and pesticides. Organic items are produced using natural fertilisers and methodical agricultural practises that benefit both the farm and the farmer. Onion, Garlic, and Mixed Spices are among our organic components we induce in our products. They’re free of synthetic pesticides and herbicide residues, and they’re jam-packed with nutrients and antioxidants.
FOI’s Tomato ketchup contains Organic Jaggery which is a natural and healthy sweetener. Jaggery or the vernacular Gur is derived from either raw or concentrated sugarcane juice, the sap of coconut or date palm tree and has numerous health benefits. It is rich in essential micronutrients such as Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus and trace elements such as Zinc, Niacin, Riboflavin, and Thiamine. Moreover, jaggery also aids digestion.
Himalayan Pink Salt
Himalayan Pink Salt is an essential element in FOI Tomato Ketchup, along with organic mixed spices. Researchers call this salt the healthiest of the sea salt family.
The pink color of Himalayan Pink salt gives it its name. Because of the presence of minerals such as iron, these minerals would otherwise be lost during the processing of regular table salt. A minimal amount of processing is done to remove impurities from pink salt. Thus, it naturally retains many minerals and trace elements.
The generation today is native to processed foods, aerated drinks and other preservative loaded eatables. This has had a significant impact on their bodies. Premature greying, dry skin, lack of immunity and frequent fatigue are all linked to the longer-shelf life junk we consume daily. This situation alarms us to be cautious consumers who purchase products which are naturally sourced and are free from any chemicals and harmful additives.
For a closure, let’s reiterate the fact that we must not avoid or terminate what we call ‘on-the-rack products;’ but instead look for healthy replacements for the same. Just like FOI Food’s Tomato Ketchup, an organic yet tasty replacement to your ordinary’s!
