I fell in love with this brand the first time I bought their ketchup just over two years ago. Finding a sugar-free, paleo alternative to my favorite sauces has been awesome. The stores I shop in have since stopped carrying them, however I do an online order every few months to stock up.
Though I still limit my condiment intake, when I do want to cook up something that calls for a little addition, Nature's Hollow is my go-to brand.
Hickory Maple BBQ Sauce Review:
Pros: The flavor is amazing. It's bold and tangy while having the right amount of sweetness. It's fairly priced for it being a high quality, rare product and for the size you get. To me, it's worth it to be able to enjoy BBQ sauce every once in a while. It's made with Apple Cider Vinegar instead of regular vinegar which works out well for those of us who suffer from any Candida issues or urinary issues. And it's also sweetened with xylitol instead of sugar, which makes it a good option for anyone with diabetes or candida.
Cons: It does contain caramel coloring and xanthan gum. Both are additives/ingredients I try not to consume in any products, and it's been said that even xylitol is derived from corn cobs. Since I am trying to go grain free, these ingredients concern me, and if you have allergies I'd avoid it. However, like I said, I use BBQ sauce MAYBE once every 4-6 months when I use it in a crock pot meal, so I use it for meal diversity. *side note: the ketchup DOES NOT contain artificial coloring or xanthan gum.
Ingredients: Tomatoes, xylitol, apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, arrowroot powder, natural maple flavor, onion powder, garlic powder, dehydrated bell pepper, spices, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, salt, black pepper, paprika.
