New Wholemato Organic Agave Ketchups Spice up a Picnic or Cookout

Picnic and grilling season is only a few months away and Wholemato is spreading the word that there are new healthy condiments to place in the cooler or picnic basket for an outdoor culinary adventure. Introduced last summer, Wholemato Spicy Organic Agave Ketchup is a delicious gourmet topping for hot dogs, burgers and sandwiches, whether they are of the meat or vegetarian variety. The company also introduced the first organic agave ketchup, their Original variety, in 2007. In addition to their status as a healthy topping, these innovative ketchups are also ‘ripe’ for grilling and are flavorful sauces to add to a wide variety of picnic and barbecue recipes.

Wholemato ( has sparked a healthy ketchup revolution with the recent launch of their two gourmet organic ketchups. These fresh updates of an old classic combine the rich flavor of premium ripe organic tomatoes with an artistic blend of spices and agave nectar - a natural sweetener that is one of the hottest culinary trends in the healthy food marketplace. The Spicy variety, the newest version, provides a zing that is described as a medium on the ‘heat’ index, due to the hot jalapeno peppers in the sauce. In addition to their robust flavor, these innovative Agave Ketchups also have a remarkable mouth-feel that is not experienced with other ketchups.

Agave is a natural sweetener comprised primarily of fructose. Therefore, it is sweeter to the taste buds – yet it does not adversely impact blood glucose and insulin. So, while it is a delightful sweetener for everyone, it is particularly ideal for the millions of diabetics and parents of hyperactive children that have concerns regarding the glycemic levels in their food. Wholemato Organic Agave Ketchups are gluten-free, and they have been certified as Low-Glycemic for Diabetics by the Glycemic Research Institute due to their remarkable low score on the glycemic index.

Wholemato Spicy and Original Organic Agave Ketchups are offered in a premium glass bottle. The 13-ounce glass bottle provides comfort to the growing number of people concerned about chemicals that may leach out of plastic bottles – especially since tomatoes and ketchup have a naturally acidic pH. Wholemato ketchups are also gluten-free. The suggested retail price for the Original is $4.99, the SRP for Spicy is $5.49, and they are widely available at Whole Foods Markets and hundreds of other chain and independent retailers across the U.S.

Wholemato is a family-owned business that is committed to enhancing the health of customers and supporting sustainable organic agriculture. All of the ingredients in their ketchups are certified organic, and the agave is harvested sustainably by a collective of indigenous people in Mexico. The founders of Wholemato celebrate the great southern tradition of sauce-making and have combined their love of gourmet food with their formal nutrition training and vast culinary experience to produce foods that are wholesome and of the highest quality.
