Not a single product from the Hunt's Ketchup line will contain high fructose corn syrup, ConAgra Foods announced yesterday. The HFCS will be replaced with sugar.
"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, in a company news release yesterday.
The company began rolling out to major markets nationwide in mid-April and by mid-May they expect to have the new ketchup available everywhere.
