Classico tomato sauce, by the ingredients

Recommended Posts

I was scrounging for food last night and I found a bottle of my favorite pasta sauce. It's Classico brand, and while it isn't organic, I bought about 6 jars (before the W30) because it was THE only flavor on the entire 15 shelves of pasta sauces that was free of sugar, soybean oil, and preservatives. You wouldn't believe how many things are made with soybean oil these days. I'm wondering if it's W30 legal based on its ingredient list:

tomato puree (water, tomato paste)

diced tomatoes (tomatoes, tomato juice, citric acid, calcium chloride)

contains less than 2% of: onions, salt, garlic, basil, olive oil, granulated garlic, spices.

The label reads "All Natural, contains no preservatives."

What's the word on that citric acid/calcium chloride addition? Other than that dubious component, this was the absolute cleanest option available that was still affordably priced (other than making my own sauce, which isn't happening anytime soon.)

Just a note: I don't eat it on pasta. I typically simmer it with homemade meatballs and put it over fresh chopped spinach. It's pretty darned delicious, like a salad pretending to be a pasta dish.

The last comment in this post from Robin says they are good to go!


If you want to be fancy schmancy (not really), next time here is a recipe to make your own sauce. Easy, good and the house will smell delicious!


For the record, this sauce is compliant but the meatballs are not!
