Dried Tomato

Colorful & Flavorful • Excellent Source of Plant-Based Umami

Native to western South and Central America, tomatoes offer a balance of savory and sweet. They are also one of the best sources of plant-based umami, a taste that the brain often associates with meat, making it highly sought-after for meat replacement products. Drying tomatoes intensifies their tangy flavor and increases the umami. Tomatoes pair well with chili peppers, onion, and garlic.

Tomatoes are an excellent source of the antioxidant Lycopene, which may support cellular, heart, lung, oral, and skin health. Studies show that tomatoes may also support a healthy inflammatory response and immune, eye, and digestive health.(1) Tomatoes are also a popular ingredient for dog and cat food, as our furry friends can benefit from the same nutritional qualities that make them a healthy ingredient for humans.(2)

Our air-dried and spray-dried tomato can be used in a variety of applications, including dips, dry pasta, instant soups, Instant Pot ready meals, chips, crackers, seasonings, rubs, tortillas, and wraps. Tomato is also popular in dry dog food, treats, and toppers. It can also be used as a natural, clean-label food color.
