Tomato Puree* 99.6%, Basil* 0.4% (*Certified Organic)
Ceres Organics like food that's wholesome and pure. So this tomato & basil passata is just that! They take organically grown, vine-ripened Italian tomatoes, and simply mash them before carefully passing through a sieve to remove seeds and lumps. This is then blended with organically grown basil and poured into bottles, with nothing else added. Just straight up goodness. This Italian classic is great in soups and sauces, or any other dish for a rich tomato flavour and smooth texture.
Storage: Once opened, refrigerate and consume within 2 days
Ceres consider both the bulk ingredient allergen declaration and the potential risk of allergen contamination introduced at the packing/manufacturing facility when labelling their products. If the product carries no warning, this means that there is no advised gluten risk for the ingredients and no gluten contamination risk is present during manufacture or re-packing.
However, Ceres do not test for gluten allergens unless a gluten free certified or blue cross grain claim is made on the packaging. If you're coeliac and need 100% assurance, check out the Ceres products in our Gluten Free Certified value.
