While I was in the supermarket today, I checked a few brands of BBQ sauce to see if any had a composition such as the one used in the UK by Domino's for its Texas BBQ pizza and listed in Reply 10 above, specifically:
Barbecue Sauce (high fructose corn syrup, tomato paste, distilled vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, salt, modified food starch, spices, mustard bran, natural flavouring, onion and garlic powder, colour, lemon juice, preservative (E211)).
I found three major U.S. brands, plus one house brand, that had a similar list of ingredients, including KC Masterpiece, Bulls-Eye and Kraft's--all basic varieties of the BBQ sauce (i.e., not honey or mesquite or other special version). One difference I noted is that the high fructose corn syrup was not the first ingredient in the list. The tomato paste/puree was first. Another brand used sugar in lieu of high fructose corn syrup and even proudly proclaimed on the label that no high fructose corn syrup was used. This change no doubt was to allay the concerns of consumers over what is perceived to be excessive use of high fructose corn syrup in food products. I noticed another product recently that said on the packaging that no high fructose corn syrup was used. I suspect we will see more of this sort of thing.
