Tomatoes are bred and selected for traits important to their specialized growing, harvesting, processing and consumption requirements, which also dictate their flavors, textures and other characteristics. Color, an important measurement parameter in tomato products, is closely related to quality and taste.

Tomato products, regardless of how they are prepared, should always maintain the familiar base colour of red. If the topic is ketchup, purée, pasta sauces or soup, red is generally the main identifying colour of the tomato ingredient.

So in the tomato paste factory, they always needs a color spectrophotometer to do color quality control for them. They need to check its color on every production step and control all colors before selling. 

For tomato paste color check it is good to use model YS3010 spectrophotometer with UTC universal test components.
