Mutti® Double Concentrated Tomato Paste (Doppio Concentrato) was the first product introduced by the Fratelli Mutti company in 1899. In 1951, Mutti was the first to pack tomato paste into a tube, a significant innovation at the time. Great tasting, long lasting, and with a cap that could be used as a thimble, it became a favorite amongst Italian families. This paste uses only the highest quality, 100% Italian tomatoes – not by-products from other tomato processing. In fact, 5.5 lbs. of fresh tomatoes are used to make every 1 lb. of Double Concentrated Tomato Paste. Use it to deepen flavor and thicken recipes like Bolognese, casseroles and stews.
