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.

Ketchup with sausage and cheese

Thanks to our elaborate and proven recipes, our Ketchups are the perfect match for all gourmet meals and premium ingredients. You can confidently serve Paul Ketchup, let's stick to our example of the Beer-Onion-Pear Ketchup, with the best gourmet sausages and cheeses you can find.


Ketchup with white wine and beer

The Beer-Onion-Pear-Ketchup moreover perfectly harmonizes with wines and beers that reflect the aromas present in the Ketchup - in our case with a round Chardonnay or a Trappist beer with a rich yeasty taste.


Gustatory perception

Our gustatory perception - the flavor of something - can be divided into five basic tastes:

  • sweet
  • salty
  • sour
  • bitter 
  • umami

While the first four tastes are commonly known, the fifth one, umami, describes how savory (or full/rich) something tastes. There are additional gustatory perceptions like the (subjective) spiciness of something.
