The tube is easy to open, twist off the cap, break the seal and you’re ready to start cooking. This BPA free tube will last 30 to 45 days in the fridge after being opened, making it a great alternative to traditional canned tomato paste.

The Process

The process of creating our rich double concentrated tomato paste begins with the selection of tomatoes. The tomatoes are specifically chosen for their fleshier and firmer characteristics. The chosen tomatoes are then sent to a facility where they are washed and sorted. After sorting, the tomatoes are ground into a mash. The mash is then cooked until a looser, brighter red and fresher tasting paste is produced. The paste is spun at high speeds to remove the pulp and seeds. Once this process is complete, the paste is placed in evaporation tanks where the water is removed. This evaporation process occurs twice. Finally, once the paste has reached its desired concentration, it is then packaged in tubes and distributed until it makes its way to your pantry.

Cooking With Tomato Paste

Double concentrated tomato paste in a tube is meant to be used in small amounts, when cooking or substituting for canned paste. Cento Double Concentrated Tomato Paste in a Tube has a more robust flavorful taste than our other canned tomato pastes. When substituting for a recipe that calls for traditional canned paste, follow a 1:1 or equal parts substitution. Double concentrated tomato paste provides a more robust flavor than that of traditional tomato paste.
