This ketchup has more flavor and zest than anything you will find in the store. Use quality ingredients and even try fermenting it for more interesting flavor.

There is still plenty of time left of BBQ season so be sure to slather your grass-fed burgers, hot dogs and sweet potato fries with a healthy, improved version of ketchup. My Healthy Probiotic Ketchup tastes great and promotes a youthful, vibrant body.
I have to warn you, this ketchup does NOT taste like Heinz 57. It tastes better! It’s just the right balance of tomato flavor, a little sweet, has depth of flavor due to the added spices and the fermentation process.
It tasted good before I fermented it, but amazing afterwards. Fermenting the ketchup transformed the flavors into a mouth watering condiment you can feel good about slopping all over your oven baked fries, breakfast eggs and whatever else you love.

Hi! I’m Danielle, I started Fermented Food Lab to educate and bring awareness of the health benefits of eating traditionally fermented foods. My goal is to get more people to try fermentation and love it. It's also a place where I can share what I invent in my kitchen, which I call, “the lab”, because I always have something unique and new fermenting on my counters.
