Pastorelli has been using the same recipe for our award-winning Italian Chef Pizza Sauce since 1952. However, we have made a few changes to the sourcing for some of our ingredients. We hope to ensure only the highest quality of products for our customers. Here are a few examples of how we have improved over the years:
- Switching from a conventional citric acid to a naturally derived citric acid
- Using sea salt as opposed to a more processed salt
- Moving to a Non-GMO Expeller Pressed Canola Oil
- Using only BPA-free packaging
Of course, some things haven’t changed, like our use of California vine-ripened tomatoes, imported Pecorino Romano cheese and imported Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
In an effort to maintain total transparency with our customer base, Pastorelli is proud to announce that our Italian Chef Pizza Sauce is now Non-GMO Project Verified. We chose to partner with the Non-GMO Project because their seal is among the most trusted in North America when it comes to avoidance of genetically engineered foods.
We want our customers to feel confident in the sourcing of their food when they put Pastorelli sauce on their pizzas. We’ll continue to improve our products and to use sustainable, wholesome ingredients.
