I believe it depends on ingredients.

Nadia ia correct. It depends on the ingredients. I bought some just yesterday. San Marzano tomatoes and salt. Some contain citric acid which is fine.

Hi Franco! The trader joe's brands (much cheaper) and the ones at whole foods (organic) are whole 30 compliant....Hunt's brand has natural flavors so I am avoiding those for my whole 30. However, Hunt's diced tomatoes have no natural flavors and I am using those for recipes. Hope this helps! Happy cooking! :)

Yeah just check ingredient lists. I buy tomato paste and eat it straight up (but that's a different thread, possibly under the "food with no brakes" category :ph34r: ). The brands I buy, right from the regular grocery store, list tomatoes and salt as the only ingredients.

I just checked my Amore tomato paste this morning as I was planning dinner. It did not have the ingredients listed, so I checked their website. Only tomatoes and salt so I will be using it in dinner.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

The tomato paste I have just lists concentrated tomato as the one ingredient, is that Ok?


Also, are we allowed tinned tomato? Ingredients: Organic Tomato, Organic Tomato Juice, Acidity Regulator (citric acid)

Seriously..tomato paste made of San Marzano tomatoes in a tube. Way good.
