    Depends on how it's made. I can't say it's "inherently" primal, but I suppose it can be "primalized" in some fashion, by making it yourself.

    I see the popular brands have high fructose corn syrup so I'd say, no, not the common stuff in the store. If you can find some without sugar, or make your own, I'm sure it's fine.

    You can make your own primal ketchup.

    Read the ingredients label. It'll tell you all you need to know.

    Depends on how much you use and how often if store bought..

    A little here and there... I wouldnt even bat and eyelash at...

    If you are a junkie... might want to consider making your own

    Exactly what I was about to say!
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    Everyone has pretty much said it....the ingredients tell all! Heinz and other brands are not primal at all, but I've found an amazing recipe in a book by Julie and Charles Mayfield called Paleo Comfort Foods. They have so many other kinds of "comfort" foods that we might miss by going primal, but they have found amazing ways to enjoy these good old recipes in a Primal way You should definitely check out the book.

    I buy Simply Heinz - no HFCS. It has sugar instead, but I don't have a problem with that. I rarely use ketchup, except in a barbecue pork recipe and sometimes on burgers. I keep it on hand more for the grandkids and the hubs.
