In the world of culinary conundrums, few debates have endured as fiercely as the age-old question: should tomato sauce reside in the chilly confines of the refrigerator or find solace in the welcoming embrace of the pantry?

While the world may unite over its love for this versatile condiment, the question of whether it belongs nestled among the non-perishables or chilling in the dairy compartment has sparked heated debates and incited passionate arguments

But fear not, dear readers, for the renowned condiment brand Heinz has emerged as an unlikely hero in this saucy saga, utilising the power of social media to finally settle the score once and for all.

The post sparked a lively discussion among social media users, with passionate arguments being presented on both sides.

 

Heinz spokesperson Olivia Lennon appeared to have the final say on the matter, claiming “there was only ever one correct answer”.

“We’re happy to share with Heinz Tomato Ketchup lovers across the UK that our ketchup has to be in the fridge,” she told The Daily Mail.

“Although we’re aware many Heinz Tomato Ketchup fans have been storing their ketchup in the cupboard, we do recommend refrigeration after opening.

“This is the best way to maintain the delicious tangy taste of our Heinz Tomato Ketchup that you know and love.”

Heinz’s recommendation for refrigeration aligns with food safety guidelines issued by health organisations worldwide. Proper refrigeration inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria, reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses associated with spoiled condiments.

With Heinz finally settling the sauce storage dispute, consumers can now make more informed choices about how they store their condiments.
