It has 170mg of salt. Almost all processed foods have salt. It is used as a preservative as well as a seasoning agent. Saccharin was never proven to cause cancer in humans and is now considered safe. It was bad science based on a fairly flawed rat study.

Most of that is all "theories" which sound "good" or "scary" as for me i think Stevia is awful. You never know when someone has an interest in a product either. I just use what ever i like, i like sacharin too and yrs ago " they said " it would give us all cancer (if you ate tons of it maybe) We each have to do what "we" feel is best.

I have not seen the Heinz ketchup in wm and i was just there and didn't look again emoticon I wonder if it has more salt in it.

I don't consider mercola to be a reputable site nor do most medical people.

I've switched to stevia after reading several articles about how Splenda is contaminating ground water.

The human body can't break it down, or use it in any way. And as it turns out, modern wastewater treatment methods don't break down Splenda either.

Smitha Ramakrishna, a finalist in the 2009 Intel Science Talent Search, found that the sweetener can accumulate in the water supply after people excrete it. This could potentially cause harm to fish and other living creatures.

I just don't like the taste. They put too much splenda in it and it tastes "fake" to me.
