What I do not like about these tomatoes is they have well over ten times the sodium of the brand I mentioned. It's an even higher ratio for the D.O.P. brands I have used. For example, the 410mg of sodium per half cup serving compares poorly against the 25mg in the Carmelina or the 10mg in a D.O.P. brand I will mention below.
Also note that many Italian and some domestic brands are simple: tomatoes and tomato juices in which the sodium is a natural part of the tomato. This brand is a little less natural: in addition to the tomatoes it contains salt, calcium chloride and citric acid. None of the ingredients are harmful, but they do alter the natural flavor of the tomatoes. I have literally tried these side-by-side with the Carmelina brand and the differences are marked.
I will concede that these are sweet and the contents are thick and dense. Frankly I think this brand falls a little short on taste and texture when compared to true San Marzano tomatoes, and the same goes for some of the San Marzano style tomatoes like the ones I use.
Compared to popular domestic brands of crushed tomatoes like Progresso, Hunts and other tier one brands this is a cut above.Read more ›
Frankly, I almost prefer this brand over the Cento brand because these tomatoes come pre-crushed. This means I don't have to get my hands or a potato masher in there and start tearing up the tomatoes to make them blend in
with the sauce.
Maybe if someone is a purist and can honestly distinguish these from San Marzano tomatoes that have been imported from Italy, then they can keep buying the more expensive 'imported' tomatoes.
But I just don't see the point in spending $1.50 or more per can to buy 'the real thing' when there's no discernible difference in flavor or taste.
Sorry, I just don't feel like belly-aching over something so trivial. I"m baking the pizza for myself and my family, not running a restaurant or trying to satisfy Italian quality laws.
I think the DOP designation is over-rated. I'm also not cooking my pizza in a wood-burning oven, so what difference does it make how 'authentic' the tomatoes are?!
These tomatoes are just as good as any others. I didn't give them five stars because while I don't see them as being inferior to 'the real thing', I also feel that I can make my own tomato sauce that tastes every bit
as good as the san marzano canned tomatoes. So, while these tomatoes aren't bad, they're aren't perfect either. I've yet to find any that are.

Poor quality tomatoes. If you can't taste the difference between these tomatoes and the real Italian San Marzano you shouldn't be in the kitchen. Mamma mia!Published 11 months ago by Varo A. Angeletti
These tomatoes are grown in California. For the price it is a total rip off and you can by domestic brands at a grocery store for half the price and just as much flavor.Published 16 months ago by never forget sep 11
