Tomato powder is the perfect supplement to spruce up any dish in need of that classic tomato flavor. It’s delicious with eggs, soups, or sauces, and even blended in smoothies. Tomato powder is made from dehydrated tomatoes and delivers a rich source of lycopene, vitamin C, and many other protective nutrients.
How to Enjoy Tomato Powder
Now you can easily make flavors pop with that delicious tomato taste in many of your favorite foods! Try tomato powder sprinkled over pasta, pizzas, and baked potatoes for a classic tomato kick. It's also delicious mixed with salad dressing, stews, chilis, and sauces. Try it stirred into dips or cream cheese and accompanied by chips and crackers. For hearty breads and baked goods with a natural tomato flavor, add 1/2 ounce of tomato flour for every 1 pound of regular flour. Create a rich tomato sauce for your recipes by mixing 4 parts of water with 1 part of tomato powder.
Tomato Powder Health Benefits
Nutritional Powerhouse: Tomato powder boasts a rich source of vitamins A and C, which not only defend the immune system, but also protect the health of the eyes and skin. It’s also high in minerals like folate, potassium, magnesium, and iron which support a wide range of metabolic processes in the body. Tomato powder is also rich in dietary fiber which aids the digestive tract and promotes a feeling of fullness. Protective antioxidants present in tomatoes, like lycopene, defend cells against damage caused by free radicals, and may reduce the risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
Prostate Health: Dietary supplementation of lycopene through tomato products may reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer. Research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in 2002 found that consuming tomato products on a regular basis was associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer.
Bone Health: The antioxidant activity of lycopene may reduce the risk for developing osteoporosis. A 2011 study published in the journal Osteoporosis International found that postmenopausal women who consumed lycopene-rich tomato juice experienced decreases in oxidative stress and bone resorption, aka bone loss.
Sun Protection: Lycopene-rich tomato powder may enhance protection against sunburns. A 2008 study published in the British Society for Investigative Dermatology found that participants who consumed tomato paste for 12 weeks experienced over 30% more protection from UV light than the control group.
Tomato Powder Storage
Tomato powder should be stored in a cool, dry place and can be kept for up to a year. To avoid clumping, keep the powder away from exposure to heat and moisture. It can be stored for longer periods in the freezer. Tomato pastes and sauces can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.

“Hi Guys! I received my order yesterday and LOVE every item! The tomato powder & sundried slices are TO DIE FOR! Truly the best tasting and FRESH dried tomatoes I think I've ever had.

“I bought from you before and bought a large bag of the tomato powder. Great to add to soups, stews, gravies.
But I love to add it to dried milk, basil, oregano, a little corn starch; and it makes a fantastic soup in a jar as a gift. I like to give that in a tomato basket with some good Italian breadsticks which make a fantastic treat. They can make 1 cup at a time which is perfect.
But it is a fantastic ingredient,”

“Well. This was my first time ordering from Nuts.com. When I couldn't find tomato powder, an ingredient I needed for a recipe, anywhere locally, I Googled it, and Nuts.com had the cheapest price, so I ordered it. A friend mentioned some good things she'd gotten, so I'd already heard of the name. What was my surprise when a mere 2 days later, the box arrived. When I opened up my emails a minute later, there was one from Nuts.com saying "Shipment delivered!" (scary), with a really fun, lighthearted message from them. So, wow! Nothing but positive impressions! Thanks, folks.”

“Today I used my dad's tomato soup recipe. I felt like the 12 old girl again who had her dad standing beside her so she wouldn't forget anything. I used your wonderful tomato powder instead of whole tomatoes and cut down the time of cooking. It was sooo good that I will need to order another bag just to make sure I never run out. Thank you for all the goodies and the special treats.”
