What’s in a Squirt, a Squeeze, and a Pour?

Here’s what you’re getting when you self-serve a restaurant condiment.

Ketchup Pump
One 2-ounce paper cup holds 1/4 cup of ketchup, and two full pumps from the ketchup dispenser will fill it. 1/4 cup ketchup = 80 calories, 0g fat, 640mg sodium

Soy Sauce Splash
It takes just under 4 seconds to pour 1 tablespoon. 1 tablespoon soy sauce = 10 calories, 0g fat, 920mg sodium

Cream Stream
Think of the little pitcher this way: It contains 8 tablespoons of half-and-half. A 3-second pour adds 1 tablespoon to your coffee. 1 tablespoon half-and-half = 20 calories, 1.5g fat, 0.5g sugar

Syrup Drizzle
With the spout fully open, you’ll pour 1/4 cup in just 1.5 seconds. 1/4 cup syrup = 210 calories, 0g fat, 32g sugar

Sugar Pour
Sugar pours from the dispenser at a rate of 1 teaspoon per 2.5 seconds. 1 teaspoon sugar = 21 calories, 1g fat, 5.5g sugar

Sauce Squeeze
A good 5-second squeeze results in about 2 tablespoons of thick, molasses-y barbecue sauce. 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce = 60 calories, 0g fat, 240mg sodium
