Natural tomato enhanced taste


CTC, Clear Tomato Concentrate, is a natural liquid filtered from tomato pulp with a high level of BRIX combined with higher acidity that acts as a taste improver for food. Providing tomato taste addback and BRIX character, the combination creates roundness and balance with taste intensity perfectly suited for tomato-based applications such as soups, sauces and juices.
