Tomato paste is made from tomatoes in a several-stage process. Tomatoes are washed, sorted for quality, chopped, enzyme deactivated to preserve serum quality then strained to obtain the necessary juice for paste production. The strained juice is then evaporated under vacuum to a concentration of 24% Natural Tomato Soluble Solids (NTSS). The finished paste is practically free from extraneous plants material and objectionable defects, has a bright red color and possesses a rich tomato flavor. The product is hot-filled to ensure commercial sterility then cooled prior to stacking.

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!
