WHOLEMATO is a new US brand of organic ketchup containing a sweetener extracted from agave. This natural sweetener avoids problems usually afflicting diabetics by not affecting blood glucose and insulin level. The Glycaemic Research Institute has certified that the ketchup has a score of 7 per tablespoon; remarkably low on the glycaemic index. Wholemato ketchup is also claimed to contain 57% more lycopene then other brands. This substance, known as a powerful carotenoid, helps to prevent and repair damaged cells and has the ability to inhibit DNA oxidation that may lead to some cancers.
