- Great source of antioxidants
Eden Foods pride themselves on their uncomplicated, all-natural products, and we think this sauce is an outstanding example. This Organic Pizza-Pasta Sauce is created from two types of heirloom Italian plum tomatoes, chosen for their particularly firm flesh and sweet flavour. These delicious tomatoes are simply reduced down with organic olive oil and seasonings until thick and silky, no fuss or additives required.
We love that this sauce really showcases the bold flavours that nature has to offer. The tomatoes are sweet and tangy, the garlic is warm and the herbs are earthy. When high-quality, organic ingredients taste this good, you don’t want to over-complicate things!
As it says on the jar, you can use this sauce for topping pizzas or spooning over pasta, but the possibilities don’t end there. We love using this sauce as a quick and easy base for soups or casseroles, as it’s already so perfectly seasoned and balanced. Despite being stereotypically Italian, this sauce also works great in Mexican recipes. Pour into ramekins and use as a dip for tortillas, or even pour over enchiladas and bake.
As well as tasting delicious, Eden Foods’ Organic Pizza-Pasta Sauce can even help protect your health, as it is a great source of lycopene, a highly effective antioxidant. Hundreds of carotenoid plant pigments are antioxidants, but red lycopene is thought to be the most effective antioxidant of them all.
Roma tomatoes are particularly high in lycopene, but the Organic Roma tomatoes that Eden Foods used to create this sauce contain even higher levels than non-organic ones. On top of that, the way they are cooked down with organic olive oil increases the absorption of the lycopene!
This sauce also contains non-irradiated herbs and spices, which is another great news! Although the process of irradiation can increase the shelf life of ingredients by killing bacteria, it also removes most of the beneficial health qualities the ingredients have, and can even create carcinogenic chemicals as a by-product!
Eden Foods has really put great care in creating this sauce. Besides all the nutritional goodness, it is absolutely delicious! The Organic Pizza-Pasta Sauce will be your new favourite in no time.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the story behind Eden Foods?
Eden Foods began as a co-op in Michigan in the 1960s when a group of friends who were struggling to find natural foods at their local supermarkets decided to buy directly from local organic farmers. Over the years they established a customer base and opened their own store, and later their own warehouse. Eden Foods now ships to Canada, the United States and Puerto Rico, but despite this growth, 75% of their products are still prepared at the headquarters in Michigan, to reduce their environmental impact.
