I am looking for paleo friendly condiments as I just don't have the time to make my own right now.

I would like to find ketchup, mustard, barbeque sauce, and mayonnaise. Does anyone have any brands that they purchase that are paleo friends or very close too?

If you know of other paleo friendly condiments I would appreciate hearing about them! Also don't forget to say where to buy them.

Thank you all!

Real mayo is the bomb. I make it even on work mornings when I'm putting lunches together for the family. When you get the hang of it, you can do it in five minutes.

Do look for another recipe. When I make mayo, it takes less than 5 minutes---way less, and tastes great. I use a very mild olive oil.

oh thanks! I don't eat soy sauce or anything with soy anymore. I went and got gluten free, organic ketchup, mustard, and BBQ Sauce at whole foods and few other things like pasta sauce, and dairy free gluten free ranch, checked the ingredients to make sure nothing nasty was in them. Worked out good. The whole reason I asked this was actually because I DID make my own mayo and it was disgusting and took me 45min to make. guess I'll look for a diff recipe.

I know, but neither are computers. Many people make room for soy sauce in their version of paleo, so I though I'd throw that out there. Coconut aminos is an option, but I use actual tamari so rarely that I don't see the added benefit at the extra price and lessened flavor.

+1 on the list, but soy ain't paleo - sorry. Mayo is ridiculously simple to make yourself. Takes less than 20 minutes to make a large batch in a blender, and lasts about a week.

IMHO, healthy people don't get diabetes because they consumed x grams of sugar in their ketchup on occasion. If you're eating an otherwise healthy diet, I don't think a small amount of sugar in a condiment will do you in. Unless you're that metabolically deranged, then by all means do what you need to do. Otherwise, gluten-free, real-food does just fine.

I use:

Heinz organic ketchup (organic tomato concentrate, organic distilled vinegar, organic sugar, salt, organic onion poder, organic spice, natural flavoring) Got it at Walmart.

Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard (water, vinegar, mustard seed, salt, white wine, fruit pectin, citric acid, tartaric acid, sugar, spice) Also from Walmart. I don't care for mustard, so I only use it in small amounts in homemade dressing.

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce (Distilled white vinegar, molasses, water, sugar, onions, anchovies, salt, garlic, cloves, tamarind extract, natural flavoring, chili pepper extract) Walmart

San-J Gluten-Free Tamari (water, soybeans, salt, alcohol) Sprouts/Whole Foods/Central Market/Market Street

Can't help you on mayo, as the hubs and I both find the stuff disgusting. Also can't help on barbecue sauce--I'm from Texas.

I am not saying you should do this, but if time is your concern, making your own could take much less time than going out to buy these. You might consider checking out one or two recipes just for fun.

We make a barbecue sauce with no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. You can find it online at cavemanbob.com.

There are a couple companies that make stevia-sweetened condiments. - a quick Google search for "ketchup stevia" turns up a few results. Usually these also contain some modified starch or dextrose that adds carbs while still allowing them to put "sugar-free" on the label, but they would probably fall under the "better but don't make it a daily staple" category.

Most mustard is totally fine; I wouldn't worry about eating a lot of it. I'd also recommend looking for coconut aminos at your local health food store. It's a great way to add some soy sauce-like flavor to stir fry.

Finally, learn to make your own homemade mayonnaise. It's worth it. Real mayo with egg yolks and fresh spices is a totally different (and much more delicious) food than the crap you buy at the supermarket.

If the condiment is gluten-free I say go with it.

Really the amount of sugar in a little bit of ketchup is so small I just don't see stressing on it.

Now to be fair I don't use condiments much except mustard and braggs (soy suace). I lost my taste for them. However, if I am in the mood for BBQ sauce etc...I just go with it.

For me, I switched to these more paleo-friendly options:

  • Soy sauce -> Exchanged for umeboshi vinegar or organic balsamic vinegar (no cream, some creams have sugars and added crap), not the same but similar, I can live with it
  • Mustard -> I get the original Dijon Maille which does not have any sugar added, it has some additives but I can live with that also
  • Ketchup & other processed tomato sauces -> Raw tomato purée or red / yellow chilli sauce if I want spicy.

Other options:

  • Garlic sauce
  • Cilantro sauce
  • Guacamole
  • Coconut milk
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Mayo (if done with paleo-friendly oils like olive/macadamia/avocado)

Almost all of these can usually be found with very little additives or you can always try home made.

We found Heinz Organic Ketchup to be way too sweet and we returned it. Don't recommend it at all!

Gringo Jack's makes some great BBQ sauces that don't have preservatives but have things like maple syrup and brown sugar. If you are not trying to be LC then I would recommend these. Not sure if stores outside of VT carry this since its a VT brand, but you can buy online as well.

You'll be hard pressed to find any store bought mayo that is just the basic eggs, olive oil, acid and spices. Even the Spectrum Organic brand has soybean oil. You can make your own Mayo in 3 minutes and I don't think anyone here will argue that those are 3 minutes well spent.

Most mustard (like Gulden's yellow and spicy brown) is free of preservatives, and you can find organic ketchup (like Annie's) in health food stores and even a lot of big grocery stores now.

3 out of 4 ain't bad

I am not strictly Paleo, we eat Maximized Living which (as I understand) is very similar. I will only comment on mayonnaise bc you've received less advice in that area... and I LOVE "Follow Your Heart" brand Vegenaise made with grapeseed oil. It's simply amazing! (Expeller-pressed grapeseed oil, filtered water, brown rice syrup, apple cider vinegar, soy protein, sea salt, mustard flour, lemon juice). Again.. we aren't strictly Paleo, but I love this alternative!
