Canned fancy stewed tomatoes in juice shall be prepared from round tomato varieties that have been washed, hand sorted for quality, peeled and sliced. Salt, seasonings, dehydrated vegetables, citric acid and calcium chloride are added. A topping juice made from fresh tomatoes is used as a packing medium. The sealed containers are cooked to ensure commercial sterility then cooled prior to stacking. Whole tomatoes are carefully sliced and processed to highlight the quality attributes with properly processed stewed tomatoes. Slices are tender, uniform in size, have a bright tomato-red color and are practically free from extraneous plant material and objectionable defects.
THANK YOU! This team is exceptional. I write to suppliers all day long asking for information and have done so for years throughout my career, but honestly One Source are the first people who have ever sent me a complete packet of information with all requested documents attached that are not only labeled clearly, but that are also dated within the last year. Thank you so very much! It’s the simple things that make our jobs easy, but it’s working with people like you that is truly a blessing!
