After the selection phase, the best tomatoes are crushed at room temperature (approx. 20°C) according to the patented Mutti method that remains a closely guarded secret to this day.
Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes, or Polpa, is a unique product that combines the juice of the tomato with its thinly diced flesh. It retains all the freshness of freshly picked fruit, and can be used in all fish dishes as well as recipes that call for raw tomatoes. In fact, Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes releases similar aromas and herbaceous notes, and offers the same vibrant red colour as the sun-ripened summer fruit.
