Heinz ketchup, the most popular ketchup brand in the world, comes in both bottles and packets. Ketchup packets are particularly popular as an accompaniment to take-out or fast food meals. They provide small servings of the condiment that you can apply on the go. If you're a ketchup lover, check out the nutritional information for Heinz ketchup packets so you know what you're getting with each serving.

Calories

Each ketchup packet equals one serving. One packet contains 20 calories, most of which come from carbohydrates rather than protein or fat. As a comparison, a ketchup packet manufactured by McDonald's contains 15 calories. A Burger King ketchup packet contains about 10 calories.

Protein, Fat and Carbohydrates

Each Heinz ketchup packet contains no fat or protein and 4 g of carbohydrates. This amount equals about 2 percent of your daily value for a 2,000 calorie diet. The carbohydrates in Heinz ketchup packets come from sugars, rather than dietary fiber.

Vitamins and Minerals

Heinz ketchup packets contain 2 percent of your daily value of vitamin A. They contain no other vitamins. Each packet has 170 mg of sodium, which is about 8 percent of your daily value. This is a large amount of sodium given the relatively low dietary value of each ketchup packet.

Ingredients

Heinz ketchup is made of tomato concentrate, distilled vinegar, sugar, salt, onion powder, spice and natural flavoring. The amount of sodium in Heinz ketchup packets is due to the salt content. Heinz ketchup packets are kosher and gluten-free.

Packaging

In early 2010 the company unveiled a new, easier-to-use design for the packet itself. The new packet holds three times as much ketchup, tripling the serving size and nutritional content of each packet.
