Organic is expensive and very good
In addition to the properties themselves, the main difference between competitors is the price. 400 grams of sauce cost between 75 cents and 3.19 euros. And the test shows it: it’s not always the price that counts. in the organic segment three tomato sauces are rated “very good”. Winners include:
- Dennree Sugo Pronto for about 1.64 euros/ 400 grams
- for about 2.22 euros/ 400 grams
- for the modest sum of 2.34 euros / 400 grams
Particularly surprising: Especially with organic products there are also losers. The classic organic Dm tomato sauce fails with “insufficient” and the classic organic Alnatura tomato sauce with “insufficient”. In both cases, the value of TEA (tenuazonic acid) is increased or greatly increased. It’s a mold toxin. There is another point deduction for increasing the salt content of sauces.
Cheap discount sauces are good
Although the cuts conventional If no product was “very good”, the “good” winners are significantly cheaper. Discount and supermarket products from Lidl, Penny, Aldi, Rewe and Netto are also convincing here for around 0.75 euros/ 400 grams each:
- Combino basil tomato sauce from Lidl
- San Fabio Basilica Sauce by Penny
- from Aldi
- by Rewe
- Netto Mondo Italiano Napoli Pasta Sauce
Well-known products such as Barilla, Miracoli or Oro di Parma only get a “good enough” score because of their increased salt and flavor values.
