Mutti Polpa - Finely Chopped Tomatoes is a unique product that combines the juice of the tomato with its thinly diced flesh, and is able to retain all the freshness of freshly picked fruit. It can be used in all fish dishes, as well as recipes that call for raw tomatoes. In fact, Mutti Polpa - Finely chopped tomatoes releases similar aromas and herbaceous notes, and offers the same vibrant red colour as the sun-ripened summer fruit.
