Which tomato product to use?
Sun dried tomatoes are used most often in liquid applications such as sauces or dressings.
Dehydrated tomatoes, because of their longer life and stability, are found in many dry mixes including soups and rices.
For applications where piece identification is not required, like a tomato soup mix, manufacturers use spray or drum dried tomato. Both of these formats thicken liquid food products.
Ecom has created NR9411, an artificial tomato flavor, to provide a strong tomato flavor for snacks and seasonings.
