What is this product called?


#1

I’m trying to find all the nutritional info for this product, that is very common in my country.

It looks like this, and the content is pasteurized:

  • bell peppers
  • egg plant
  • tomato concentrate
  • sunflower oil
  • garlic
  • salt

What do Americans call this?


#2

It’s called Ajvar everywhere because it is a Serbian condiment. (Looks a little like italien pesto, but guess it is different)

I only ever heard about it from you, but a google search told me as much.


And google translate as sources

Only nutrional facts I could find were very basic with calorie distribution and vitamin C and A being mentioned.


#3

Ajvar is unfortunately not commonly consumed in the US. Where it is served, I’ve only ever seen it called ajvar.


#4

The nutritional info also widely differs, even if the content is the same.

Some list zero vitamins A and C, while with others the amount of those vitamins is significant.

Also, I think that pasteurization destroys vitamin C, as it is very heat sensitive?
