Tomato purées and sauces. Alce Nero’s tomatoes and vegetables stay true to the genuine simplicity of flavors of yore. They ripen under the sun of Emilia Romagna in the Mezzano marshy area, set in the Po delta, known for its peaty soil. Tomato varieties include Coimbra, Ercole and others with high levels of the antioxidant lycopene, exellent for fighting free radicals. To preserve ist flavors, aromas and nutritional properties, the production process lets no more than 10 hours lapse from harvest to packaging and low temperature pasteurization.
