What Do We Mean When We Call a Product All Natural?

Pastene has always provided its customers with the finest quality products. We believe that food in its purest state - meaning it has no artificial ingredients, is minimally processed and unadulterated by sweeteners, colorings, and preservatives - is the best tasting and most nutritious food available. This has been achieved in our "All Natural" products by insisting on very strict product quality and developmental standards. Pastene products are real ethnic Italian cuisine at its finest.

The USDA states that an "All Natural" product is a natural food because it contains no artificial ingredients and is minimally processed." Here is a list of what is NOT in our All Natural products:

    * acesulfame-K (acesulfame potassium)
    * acetylated esters of mono- and diglycerides
