Mutti Double Concentrated Tomato Paste
The intense essence of tomato
The tomato paste is ideal for giving extra colour, flavour, and texture to dishes. It is especially suitable for dishes needing very long cooking times such as ragùs, stews and one-pot wonders. It is also ideal for short cooking time meals such as when preparing a sauce à la volée for pasta or sauces, and for side sauces. For 1 kg of Double Concentrate, you need 5.5 kg of fresh tomatoes.
How we make the tomato paste
After the selection phase, crushing and heating the tomato to about 65ºC will take place. The juice will come from their skin, seeds and cellulose by centrifugal force.
Using vacuum evaporation in stainless steel containers to seal all the products. The temperature of 65ºC helps to preserve the taste characteristics of the product before moving to the pasteurization stage.
The paste is ready after heating to about 92ºC to ensure microbiological stability. Empty packs are steam-treated to remove impurities. After filling, they are cooled with water.
Since 1899, the Mutti family has shared a passion for the taste of naturally sweet, vine-ripened Italian tomatoes. Taste the difference that remarkably vibrant, fresh-tasting tomatoes make in your recipes and you’ll understand why chefs love Mutti. Italy’s #1 Tomato Brand.
