Kraft Cocktail Sauce is Fructose Free

Feb 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Fructose Free Foods, Sauces

I love to eat boiled shrimp as a snack on the weekends.  It’s a way better choice than eating chips and dip.  Shrimp is low fat and full of protein.  The problem is that many of the sauces have High Fructose Corn Syrup in them.  I looked at my local market and they had a few brands but only one them didn’t have HFCS.  Actually, my local market had 5 different brands which is a pretty good selection for a small local market.

Now, one of the myths out there is that HFCS free food costs more than it’s HFCS loaded counterpart.  Take a look at the picture below.  It’s probably hard to see but the Kraft cocktail sauce actually costs less than the Heinz sauce which contains HFCS.  So don’t automatically assume that you’ll spend more on the healthier choice.

As you can see below, the Kraft brand was only $1.99 whereas the Heinz brand was $2.49.  I have to say it was pretty tastey too!

  1. Two Fat Guys Gourmet BBQ sauce has 4 flavors; mild, spicy, smoky, lava hot. All are gluten free and fructose free. Also, no artifical ingredients, so the flavor is clean and pure….woth every penny.

  2. Be advised – your title “Kraft Cocktail Sauce is Fructose Free” is not correct! The sauce has tomato ingredients, so it indeed does contain fructose and is not an option for someone with Fructose Malabsorption, like my 6 year old son. A more appropriate title may be “Kraft Cocktail Sauce does NOT contain High Fructose Corn Syrup”. Just don’t want anyone out there getting sick if they need to be on a Fructose Free diet for medical reasons.

    Thanks,
