Dehydrated tomato is one of those spices that won't immediately come to mind, but once you see how it can be used, you'll wonder how you lived without it! Dehydrated tomatoes have a long shelf life, and in some ways much more potent flavour than the fresh counterparts. Flavours are all concentrated, and the best sweet parts of the tomato flavour shine, whereas the often unwanted sour flavour takes a much quieter role.
Regency Tomato Flakes come from our partner facility in Shandong China, where flakes are oven roasted to bring out the maximum flavour while being dehydrated. We only use the best tomatoes, naturally farmed, for our tomato flakes. The tomato flakes can be optionally ground to powder on request, grinding is done in-house at our facility in Hong Kong.
Dry tomato flakes and powder have all kinds of uses, from making soups, marinara sauces, enchilada sauces, flavouring instant noodles, adding tomato bits to bread dough, Spanish rice... the list goes on and from all around the world

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
