- Tomato powder also has a lot of fiber. A 100 g serving gives you 66 percent of the fiber you need to take in each day.
- You can reconstitute tomato powder with water to get a very good approximation of tomato paste. Use it to make pizza sauce, pasta sauce, or in any other application that would call for tomato paste or sauce. Use it in your pasta recipe to give the noodles a red hue.

►While the identity of the first person to make powdered tomatoes may be lost to history, what is known is that it the Aztecs were sun-drying tomatoes as early as 700 AD.
►The Aztecs salted and dried tomatoes to remove their moisture, which helped to preserve them for longer periods. Dried tomatoes were able to provide nutrition during seasons where it was impossible to grow and harvest fresh fruits and vegetables.
►You can also make a tomato sauce substitution using 4 parts water to every 1 part of Tomato Powder.
►This isn’t a suitable replacement for a thick, herb-and-garlic pasta sauce (which we’ve got you covered on anyway), but it can be used anywhere you would use a plain pureed tomato-style sauce in Spanish rice, soups, or curries.
►Tomato Powder the most special is not its ability to replace other products, but rather the fact that it’s a powder. You can sprinkle it onto popcorn, stir it into slaw, or create a salad dressing without adding the moisture and volume of tomato paste that it would take to infuse a dish with flavor.
