Generally the answer is yes, because ketchup is made from tomatoes, which are a nightshade (and one of the main categories of lectin foods), but it is possible to remove or greatly reduce the amount of lectins in tomatoes.

The process includes de-seeding and de-skinning the tomatoes, and then cooking in a pressure cooker, ideally.

There are tomato sauces marketed as lectin-free, which you may be able to use to create your own lectin-free ketchup, if you want to save yourself a bit of the hassle. For more info check out the page where we talk about the best lectin-free tomato sauce.
