Commercial ones have a lot of additives to them to give them a rich flavor.
Also, you cannot control the amount of sugar in it.Make your own ketchup and breathe easy!
Although some brands do have no sugar ones now.However quick homemade ketchup is best.

Also, it is made with less oil and sugar can be controlled as per your taste.
However,as there are no preservatives,you need to store this in refrigerator.
