What is tomato paste? Tomato paste is concentrated tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes are crushed and strained to remove the skins and seeds, then cooked to evaporate the liquid and reduced to reach the desired consistency. Tomato paste is a versatile kitchen ingredient, packed with flavor and can be used in a multitude of dishes.

What is the difference between canned tomatoes and tomato paste? Canned tomatoes contain the whole, peeled tomato packed in either a puree or tomato juice.  Tomato paste on the other hand, is a smooth, thick, rich paste that has been evaporated down to a concentrated tomato pulp.  

Is tomato paste and tomato puree the same? No, they are not the same.  Tomato paste and tomato puree are made using the same method, but they vary in consistency based on the length of time the tomato pulp is left to evaporate.   Tomato puree has more water thus making it a more liquid consistency, while tomato paste is a denser paste with less water content because it has evaporated longer.
