Product Description

In 1930, at the impressionable age of ten, Mario Foah tied on an apron and began awaiting his mother in the kitchen of their home in Naples, Italy. The oldest of five children, he loved to cook for his younger siblings. His love of the kitchen became a lifelong passion. Many years later after he moved to New York, Mario dreamed of bringing the kind of meals his mother cooked to a much larger audience. He started his own company, and chose AMORE as the brand name because, “Love is universal and nobody is against it.” Mario returned to Italy often in search of great products and in 1978 discovered concentrated paste tubes made from fresh Italian ingredients. Having seen nothing like it in the USA, he knew that it was exactly the type of product that he could be proud to sell.

High quality tomato paste in tubes so you can use only as much as you need.
Lucinda Fan
I was extremely pleased to find that it had a very fresh taste, without the slightly burnt and "tinny" taste of canned tomato paste.
B. LaPierre
SO glad that I found this product online as I have looked all over in the grocery stores around here with no luck.

In the past, I just didn't use tomato paste very often. That's because most brands are just nasty. We'd always have a can of Hunt's or Contadina around, but I'd always be disappointed whenever I used them. It's really annoying to, say, make homemade enchilada sauce, have it taste mediocre, and then add insult to injury by having to throw away half a can of leftover tomato paste.

Amore, by contrast, actually keeps the bright tomato flavor. Since it's in tubes, there's none of the "tinny" taste so common to canned foods. And it's so easy to squeeze out a small amount that I use it all the time. There are all sorts of soups and sauces that can benefit from a little tomato flavor, but which don't justify opening a whole can of paste. (Not to mention the fact that most canned pastes would make the food taste worse, not better.)

There are only two mysteries about this product for me. First, a 1 1/2 tablespoon serving has 2 grams of fat. No other tomato pastes I looked at contain fat. Since the ingredients are only tomato paste and salt, I have to wonder where this fat comes from. The second mystery is that they label the box as "double concentrated." As far as I can tell, it's no more concentrated than any other tomato paste: I still have to use exactly the same amount in a recipe, it just tastes better than the other brands.

But I'll forgive Amore the mysterious fat and exaggerated labeling. This has become a cooking essential in my kitchen.

There is a problem with the packaging of Amore tomatoe paste, As a former packing machine operator I could tell that it was done at the factory as the tube is inserted in the shelf box ( the black box ) MY 12 tubes arrived on time, and the cardbox was undamaged. The second layer of packaging the large black box looked fine also, the problem was the individual box for each tube. My wife discovered that some tubes had actually leaked, not because of bad sealing but because the machine that inserts them into to display box (individual carton for each tube) was jamming them in the container so hard it actually bent them. EVERY TUBE IS DAMAGED, TWO HAD TO BE THROWN AWAY. So I cant fault Amazon for the damage it wouldnt of been noticed by your order filler.

the Amore paste is a wonderful product just needs better inspection proceedures to insure better customer satifaction,,,

This stuff is great on the many, many times you only need a small amount of tomato paste, and don't want to waste the better part of a can. Plus, it is much better tasting than the domestic variety. A no brainer.

I bought this for its convenience and "thrift factor" -seldom do I use an entire can of tomato paste and usually end up throwing the remainder out. I was extremely pleased to find that it had a very fresh taste, without the slightly burnt and "tinny" taste of canned tomato paste. I would not pay the around $4.00 price for a single tube, but it is an extremely good for the price when bought in bulk in Amazon's grocery store. It's great having it shipped to my desk at work, also - saves time that I'd rather spend on cooking and gas because it's not available at local stores.

I bought this because of the dire reports about how unsafe canned tomato products are - something called BPA on the can interiors is leached into the tomatoes because of their high acidity. After I saw that the tubes were metal I emailed Amore to ask about BPA. I give them much credit for repsonding but it turns out these tubes also have BPA so they are no safer than the cans. I will say this tomato paste tastes better (but not WAY better) than what I get in cans but I don't think it's worth the extra cost. I get three small cans for a buck at Dollar General and theirs has no added salt which to me makes the DG brand a smarter choice. If the Amore was organic then I'd say it was worth the cost but it isn't.

I bought this because I wanted to keep tomatos in stock, all our summer tomatoes are gone, lycopene and I am boycotting Heinz. 12 tubes of this takes up as much room as one jar of Prego tomato sauce.

And Dr. Gourmet says:

The USDA and FDA use a test known as the "Howard Mold Count" to determine the amount of mold in products that you purchase. There are regulations about the acceptable levels of mold in certain foods. The minute you open that can of tomato paste any mold that is in the can can grow with the exposure to oxygen. The longer it is in the fridge the more chance of mold growing. Most of the molds are benign and not likely to hurt you, but they will taint the flavor of the tomato paste.

I would rate this a 10 and a normal can of tomatoe paste a -10.

This product will take your cooking to the next solar system -- not a world of difference but much more.

It is hard to put into writing what the difference is. My impression is that the tomato paste is from ripe tomatoes and the technique of putting it into a tube is much better.

It is also nice to be able to use only the amount that is needed.

Just made a concentrated sauce with italian herbs, garlic, olive oil and white wine. Mixed this with ziti pasta and completely changed my quick sauce "go to" menu.

Good luck shopping and enjoy your new ingredient!
