Production & Sourcing
Sun-dried tomato halves are crafted by selecting ripe, flavorful tomatoes, often Roma or plum varieties. The tomatoes are meticulously washed, halved, and deseeded before being laid out in the sun or dehydrated using specialized equipment. Over several days, the tomatoes slowly lose their moisture content, intensifying their flavors and concentrating their natural sugars. Once sufficiently dehydrated, they develop their characteristic chewy texture and rich, sun-kissed flavor.

Sun-dried tomato halves possess an intensely concentrated tomato flavor, characterized by a sweet, tangy taste with undertones of umami. Their flavor is robust, slightly smoky, and more pronounced than fresh tomatoes.
They have a chewy and slightly leathery texture due to the dehydration process, offering a satisfying bite that softens when rehydrated.
These tomatoes exhibit a deep reddish-brown hue, a result of the sun-drying process that concentrates their natural pigments.
Sun-dried tomato halves retain the nutrients found in fresh tomatoes, such as antioxidants like lycopene, vitamins (like vitamin C and K), and minerals. However, some nutrients, especially water-soluble ones, might diminish due to dehydration.
Their low moisture content makes them suitable for extended shelf life and adds depth to recipes without adding excess liquid.
They emanate a strong aroma that captures the essence of sun-ripened tomatoes, contributing significantly to the overall flavor profile of dishes.
Sun-dried tomato halves are often used as a flavor enhancer in various cuisines and dishes. They’re a natural ingredient, typically containing no additives, making them suitable for many dietary preferences, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets.
Sun-dried tomatoes have historical roots in Mediterranean cuisine, especially in Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern dishes, where they play a significant role in enriching pasta, salads, sauces, and various culinary creations.
