Tomato Powder - Organic
Tomato is really hard done by keto, because it's a fruit, not a vegetable and there is a massive variation of carbs in products out there - simply because some brands of tinned tomatoes contain more water than other brands do. It's a minefield, but no more!
Using concentrated tomato powder 1 tsp (0.3g carbs) + water gives you the equivalent volume and taste to a whole 200g tin of tomatoes (6.2g carbs or more). Because you use way less powder (1 tsp) to make the same quantity as a whole can of tomatoes - you cut carbs down substantially.
How to use - 3 products in the one
Tomato Juice - Using tomato powder, you can even dilute it further to make tomato juice and put Bloody Mary's back on the menu.
Tinned foods are heavy space hogs and such an annoying thing to manage the waste of (can't compost or reuse them).
