Does Your Organic Tomato Paste Contain Citric Acid?
Unless you call the manufacturer* and verify otherwise, 99% of citric acid on a label is from a process using black mold, Aspergillus niger, grown on a substrate like GMO corn or sugar.
*I contacted Muir Glen, waiting for their response.

For a more economical way to use tomato paste, when a recipe calls for 1 Tbs, freeze the rest of the jar in silicone ice cube tray.
Another option, get organic tomato paste in a tube (use half what recipe calls for).
There are a few tube options on Amazon. Here’s one:https://amzn.to/31fLicV
