A velvety tomato puree filled with all the freshness of Italian tomatoes: Tomato Passata consists of plain tomatoes strained out to deliver a smooth texture with no additional flavorings and a touch of salt. How is it made? Tomatoes are washed and crushed. They go through a refinement process that includes sieves to eliminate seeds and peels. The product is then mixed with tomato juice and lightly concentrated. The final product is thermally pasteurized and aseptically filled in our signature carton boxes. Product is exclusively made of Italian tomatoes and does not contain seeds and peels, although we cannot completely exclude possible residue. Why in a plant-based box?
