Important points about tomato paste in Ghana
In this section we want to mention important points about the history and cases of using tomato paste in Ghana:
- Tomato paste is a thick paste made by cooking tomatoes for several hours to reduce the water content, straining out the seeds and skins, and cooking the liquid again to reduce the base to a thick, rich concentrate. It is used to impart an intense tomato flavor to a variety of dishes, such as pasta, soups, and braised meat. By contrast, tomato puree is a liquid with a consistency between crushed tomatoes and tomato paste that is made from tomatoes that have been briefly boiled and strained
- Tomato paste is traditionally made in parts of Sicily, southern Italy, and Malta by spreading out a much-reduced tomato sauce on wooden boards that are set outdoors under the hot August sun to dry the paste until it is thick enough, when it is scraped up and held together in a richly colored, dark ball. Today, this artisan product is harder to find than the industrial version (which is much thinner). Commercial production uses tomatoes with thick pericarp walls and lower overall moisture; these are very different from tomatoes typically found in a supermarket.
- Tomato paste became commercially available in the early 20th century. Regional differences. In the UK, tomato paste is referred to as purée  or concentrate. In the US, tomato paste is simply concentrated tomato solids (no seeds or skin), sometimes with added sweetener (high fructose corn syrup), and with a standard of identity (in the Code of Federal Regulations, see 21 CFR 155.191). Tomato puree has a lower tomato solids requirement.
- European markets have a preference for tomato paste with salt, while some Middle Eastern countries such as Israel prefer tomato paste with sugar. In Saint Helena, it is eaten in sandwiches, known locally as “Bread ‘n Dance” because it was traditionally served at dances
- Tomato paste is added to dishes to impart an intense flavor, particularly the natural umami flavor found in tomatoes. Examples of dishes in which tomato paste may be commonly used include pasta sauces, soups, and braised meat. The paste is typically added early in the cooking process and sautéed to achieve caramelization.
Based on the manufacturing conditions, the paste can be the basis for making ketchup or reconstituted tomato juice:
- Hot break: heated to about 100 ° C (212 ° F), pectin is preserved, the paste is thicker and can be used for ketchup
- Warm break: heated to about 79 ° C (174 ° F), color is not preserved, but the flavor is preserved
- Cold break: heated to about 66 ° C (151 ° F), color and flavor are preserved, so it can be reconstituted into juice
