Tomato, Sun Dried
Field-fresh tomatoes are naturally sun-dried, sorted, washed, and trimmed. Salt is commonly added to aid as a preservative. Sulfites can be used here for color retention. Then, various cleaning, sorting, and food safety steps are conducted, prior to cutting or milling into the desired cut size. Silva’s production facility is an FSSC22000 certified operation. The fresh raw material is grown mainly throughout Turkey and the United States.
Steam sterilization can be added for microbiological reduction or to introduce a validated kill step. This ingredient category is available as all-natural, as well as non-GMO verified. A roasted version of this product is available, to create a smoked look and flavor. You can also contact us about organic options for this ingredient.
