Taste - the most important criterion
At Paul Gourmet Ketchup, we have put great emphasis on the gustatory balance of all tastes in our Ketchups when creating our recipes. Each Ketchup has one or two dominant (but not overwhelming) flavors.
The focus of our Beer-Onion-Pear Ketchup, for example, is on sweet and umami: The yeast of the boiled-down beer and the full flavors of the onions and pears create a well rounded and distinctively smooth Ketchup. This taste is enhanced by our manually selected and hand-roasted spice mix, in this case featuring spices with fresh, floral and round aromas - and this is just about as much as we will tell!
0% concentrate - 100% taste
With our 100% natural Ketchups that are based on a delicately balanced acid-sugar ratio (we only add between 4-6% brown cane sugar) and slow-cooked with selected and hand-roasted spice mixes uniquely designed for each Ketchup, we return the true roots of Ketchup: A sauce that complements each meal, a healthy treat, guaranteed culinary pleasure at the highest level!
On the other hand, what most people today know as "ketchup" has in essence not changed since more than 100 years: a once delicious table sauce has become an overly sour and sweet product, based on a recipe that was not primarily created because of its convincing taste, but rather because it was "safe" to consume.
