11jun-tomatosauce-hero

Our panel of 188 home tasters assessed 15 tomato sauces and found a clear favourite.

Each taster received 3 coded samples to try with food (generally sausages or chips) and to taste on their own. They rated the taste of each sauce and its consistency (thickness or thinness).

As well, they described each sauce’s flavour and appearance and said whether they’d buy the product. Find out which one was the firm favourite.
